WILD DANISH CIDER

LYSTIG (2018)

In the best sense an uncomplicated, fruity and semi-dry, sparkling grenade. Fresh acidity balanced by a bit of residual sugar and vinous backbone from the wild fermentation.

The apples are late variety surplus fruit coming straight out of private gardens in Fyn (Funen, eng.). With this one we have tried to preserve the insanely tasty bite of the Danish apple as a tribute to the apple harvest of 2018. Serves well with harder cheeses or as a sneaky aperitif.

Fermented and bottled by hand in our cidery in Nordhavn.

5,5 % ABV – 33 cl

HOPLA (2018)

Wild fermented cider dry-hopped with citra.

A dry, bottle conditioned, and very aromatic cider. The tart apples from Danish private gardens join forces with the citrusy acidity from the hops and the nose bursts with grapefruit and elderflower.

This is wild cider with a touch of IPA or even lambiek. It has got divine natural bubbles but is quenchy as hell.

5,9 % ABV – 33 cl

HVA DRIKKER MØLR (2018)

This single variety Pét-Nát Cider from Rød Boskoop could very well be your glou-glou summer friend.

Wild and extremely juicy with a tannic bite and bitter notes from 2 months of maceration. The Rød Boskoop apples from Vigmosegaard on Lilleø was crushed, but never actually pressed.

When fermentation was alive and kicking and the sugar level was proper for bottling, the fermenting pomace was ragged to isolate the juice and it was then bottled for a second fermentation.

Total number of bottles: 310.

5,9 % ABV – 75 cl


HIP-HOP (2018) - collab with To ØL

Hip-Hop is a wild dry-hopped cider made in the traditional method in collaboration with To Øl. The dry and sour cider from private garden apples matured a couple of months in a tank before the hops were added (Mosaic, Simcoe and Mandarina Bavaria).

The bottles were filled and then placed upside down in the pupitres for the yeast to crawl towards the neck. Every day we turned the bottle a bit by hand until the yeast was totally stuck in the neck. The bottles were then disgorged - the capsules (bidules) were opened and the pressure in the bottles shot out the yeast in the neck.

A dry, sour and wild fermented cider with a streetwise balance of citrusy aromas and infinite loads of tiny bubbles.

It takes two to tango. But it takes To Øl to Hip Hop.

Total number of bottles: 1200.

5,9 % ABV – 75 cl

ARISTAKRAT (2017)

Aristakrat is an organic bourbon barrel-aged cider made of selected Danish eating apples like Arista and Rød Aroma and a pinch of cider apples.

After a year on oak the wild cider was bottled with fresh juice of Holsteiner Cox from the small island of Lilleø. Second fermentation on the bottle and disgorgement (méthode traditionnelle).

It is a complex and tart cider with a lambic nose, a bit of funk and milky richness from malolactic fermentation on the cask. A real bone-dry gentleman with impeccable manners and a truly funky soul.

Total number of bottles: 665.

5,9 % ABV – 75 cl


SPONTAN (2018)

Wild organic cider made from Danish Topaz, Filippa and Holsteiner Cox apples. Spontaneous fermented cider from 2017 has been macerating with 2018 Holsteiner Cox from Lilleø straight from the crusher after which it underwent second fermentation on the bottle.

After a long winter in the pupitres a slim, delicate, and sour cider awoke with a nose full of ripe grapefruit and pineapple. The mouth is vinous and complex with a wild wild acid.

Two years of apple harvest in one bottle has created this funky cider ripasso.

Total number of bottles: 341.

5,9 % ABV – 75 cl

FADBELAGTIG (Sold out)

Fadbelagtig is an organic bourbon barrel-aged cider with a moderate acidity and a hint of vanilla.

This is a very small batch made of the apple variety Arista from the 2017 harvest at Hellas Frugt in Skibby. It has aged in american oak resulting in a complex cider on wild acid with a dry and vinous character.

We made it with méthode traditionelle known from the production of Champagne with yeast being shot out of the bottle neck after the second fermentation on the bottle.

Total number of bottles: 307.
