Claudine is a keeved cider; a special kind of ‘petillant naturel’ that is tannic, semi-sweet, full-bodied and juicy; a glimpse into a unique cider culture that developed centuries ago in Northwest France. The apples must be bittersweet, and the cider must be carefully watched throughout the whole transformative process from press to bottle and beyond.
Eden ciders are produced from locally-grown tannic and heirloom variety apples. They come from Eden’s own biodynamic cider orchard, and from others who practice quality and sustainable growing practices.
