Suggestions

Storage: Keep the bottles upright in a cool cellar (8 to 12°C, 46 to 54°F ). If well cellared, it can be kept for 5 years after bottling, Because the cider is on its lees, the mouth will improve and become more complex.
Service: Aperitif, or to accompany white meats (chicken or pork) or cheeses.

Bottle types: 37,5 cl - 75 cl - 20L Keykeg
