Production Notes: This cider is made from apples that have fallen, collected from the ground and allowed to further ripen in wooden crates. Apples are washed with clear water, grated or shredded, and oxidized to remove astringency before being gently pressed for 3 hours. Cédric uses the old-school process of “keeving” to clean the musts (thus they are not filtered) and all fermentations are natural. The ciders are bottled with no sulfur. A secondary natural fermentation occurs in the bottle, giving the Granit it's bubbles.

Tasting Notes: The Granit is Cédric's 'bread and butter' cider. Describing it as "the cider that makes everyone happy, even the mother in law," the Granit is made from a blend of acidic, bitter (tannic), bittersweet and sweet apples.
