Inspired by the ciders of Normandy, France, Joseph Ruwet return to the Herve region of Belgium and began making cider in 1898. The apple orchards near his home tapped the regions rich soil to produce apples perfect for cider making. The Royal Family of Belgium would later name Ruwet as the Official Supplier of the Royal Court. For three generations of Cider making, the Ruwet family takes pride in its Belgian Craft Cider to this day.
Cidre Ruwet’s Brut Cidre is a fully dry cider with traditional apple cider flavor and aromas in a elegant bottle-refermented effervescent presentation. At 4.5%, it is easy drinking, crisp, fruity and refreshing. Cidre (or Cider to English speakers) has a long history throughout Europe, primary in western England, Brittany and Normandy in France, northern Italy, and the Basque Country of Spain, all places with excellent apple orchards.
