Produced since 1994, Neige Premiere is the leading inspiration of La Face Cachee de la Pomme. It is the very first ice cider (also known as apple ice wine) to be commercialized in Quebec and throughout the world.

In the fall, very ripe apples are picked and stored at cool temperatures until the end of December. Once winter arrives, the fruit is pressed and the juice obtained is placed outside in the intense January cold. During crystallization, the water separates from the sugars by natural cryoconcentration.

After few days of intense cold, concentrated must, representing - of the initial quantity of juice, is collected by gravity. The extracted must is then placed in stainless steel tanks where it ferments at least six months at low temperatures before being bottled.
