Different manufacturers have different methods on brewing cider and you will be able to find out everything there is to know about making cider.

Apple as a national treasure

"Smaller producers like us make our cider from traditional Czech apple varieties such as reinettes or Belle de Boskoop. That's why our cider tastes different and more genuine than the products made by big manufacturers. Often they have a different flavor and come from two different batches, "reveals the secrets from Frunc Andrew F.H. Prager.  “This parade is famous now and also on show is the award-winning honey flavour that is one of a kind. Furthermore, thanks to special methods, without the use of preservatives, we can make delicious cider" he adds.
