The cider ferments in stainless steel
vats. If calvados is made by
double distillation (high temperature
extraction), Givre is made by
cooling the cider to very low
temperature. At these temperatures,
crystals of ice form. They are
separated from the liquid, which
is thereby enriched with sugar, alcohol
and body. Eight stages of chilling
are needed in order to obtain

Nose: Caramelized apple, with notes of honey and dried fruits.
