Description: Ice cider is unique to Quebec because it depends on an abundant crop of quality apples and winter temperatures that dip well below zero (-25 Deg C).
The aromas and flavours are transformed as the apples over-ripened and are then naturally concentrated by the cold. Fermentation of this golden, concentrated must is done slowly at low temperature to allow the subtle flavours to develop.
The result is a sweet, complex and intensely fruity nectar that boasts a perfect balance between sugar, acidity and alcohol.
Made from Spartan and Empire apples, the Leduc-Piedimonte Ice Cider has a golden straw-coloured hue and pleasant aromas of tangerine, orange zest and green lemon.
The palate features flavours of pink grapefruit preserves, with a subtle yet refreshingly bitter. Ice cider can wonderfully replace a fine sweet wine to accompany food or cheeses.

Domaine Leduc-Piedimonte, owned by Robert McKeown and Andree St-Denis, is a new Quebec-based cider house located in Rougemont, in the heart of the apple orchards. The owners chose to name the cider house after their maternal grandmothers as they wanted emphases to the fact that it is a family-run business and to attach strong symbolic roots to the tradition they wish to preserve.
