A passionate advocate for craft cider, the new start-up Frutoso makes lower-alcohol and lower-sugar carbonated beverages from apples and pears from the fields of southern Sweden. Also intended as a great complement to food, the ciders are developed in collaboration with restaurateurs and renowned chefs such as Lisa Lönner Pulkkinen, to ensure premium quality and suitable flavours. An exciting new addition in the line-up is Dry Hop Cider, which is based on a dry cider with added hop varieties Citra and Centennial. “This is a completely new concept in Sweden,” says founder Olof Ingemarsson. “While many craft beers tend to lean towards the fruity side, for example IPAs with mango flavour, we go in the opposite direction.
