Josgrop - Sverige

Josgrop cider is made by Ulf Ringius & Emil Broomé.
Ulf & Emil have been working with wine all of their adult life, first in restaurants and now as importers. Their idea of making cider started 6 years ago, but the thirsty crowds had to wait to 2014 to taste the cider. Ulf & Emil will not stop at cider though - there is plenty of fruits to ferment.

What are characteristics for your ciders?

We want to do something dry and fruity with a distinct acid. Something fruity and easy drinking. The idea is not to do something with a fixed idea, 2015 we made Häxan because we hadthe ability to blend lots of different fruit, something we hope to do again this year.
