The ‘ice’ in ice cider comes from the fact that the pressed juice is concentrated with natural cold, something there
is no lack of in north Sweden, where Brännland Cider has its base. The idea originates from Canada, where the product has been around since the ‘90s. While many of us might think of cider as something sparkly, the beverage actually has as many varieties as wine and can be either sparkling, still, sweet or dry. “The word cider just means that apple is the primary ingredient,” says Andreas Sundgrend, founder and CEO of Brännland Cider.
