Cider Guide

Cider is the English name for an apple sparkling wine, which is fermented from several apple varieties. This is also known in German-speaking countries as apple cider or apple juice. In France one calls Cider „Cider“. Will be produced Cider by fermenting fermented or carbonated fermented apple juice in closed containers with carbonic acid. The apple sparkling wine Cider was already around 400 BC Produced in Chr. This finding is attributed to the Greek historian Herodotus, who reported from a tribe in the Asia Minor Side, who squeezed out apples and processed them into a drink. According to Greek mythology, this place was named after Side, the daughter of Taurus. Although the strain in Side no longer exists, the alcoholized apple drink is still named in many countries today.

Preparation and alcohol content of Cider

For the production of Cider are used apple varieties that have a high tannin content. The fermentation is carried out at temperatures of 4 to 15 degrees Celsius. These low temperatures prolong the duration of fermentation, which has a significant impact on the aroma of apple sparkling wine. The cider is poured into new barrels just before the sugar is converted by yeasts, so that the yeasts remain in the old barrel. In the new barrel, the liquid is sealed airtight. The carbonic acid is produced by the fermentation of the remaining sugar. This also ensures that the cider in the barrel for up to four years durable. Some cider producers add sugar to the drink to increase its alcohol content. But there are also cider varieties that are produced after the classic bottle fermentation in champagne bottles. In France, cider of this species is called „cider bouché“. For the production of apple brandy „Calvados“ cider is the starting product. In France and Belgium cider is usually produced with an alcohol content of about five percent, as is the case with the harsh Cider „brut“. Sweet variants, such as the cider „doux“, have only 2.5 percent alcohol content. In Spain, where Cider is called „Sidra“, the alcohol content is similar. Manufacturers often use different classifications, such as „fully flavored“, „low alcohol“, „sweet“ and „highest quality“. In the UK, cider often contains up to 12 percent alcohol and less carbon dioxide than French or Spanish varieties. Here are the different names „dry“, „fruity“, „sparkling“ and „sweet“ familiar.
