EVERYONE'S TASTES ARE DIFFERENT – AND SO ARE CIDERS

Alongside an extensive range of beers, Brau Union Österreich is exploring the constantly expanding cider market. As a refreshing, mildly alcoholic drink from fermented apple juice, cider is on the rise in Austria. It is becoming increasingly popular, serving as uncomplicated backing to every convivial gathering. Its diverse taste profile, going from enjoyable sweetness to revitalising sourness generates a diversified drinking pleasure, that helps everyone find themselves in it.

FROM APPLE TO CIDER

Cider is an alcoholic drink made from fermented apple juice. Apples are Austria’s number one fruit considering both cultivation and consumption, which makes them a vital part of the Austrian agriculture. Cider’s history is a long and border-crossing one, over the course of which the craft of cider production has been passed on from generation to generation and perfectioned over the years.

STIBITZER

STIBITZER – CLEVERLY AUSTRIAN

Stibitzer is a clever cider for those who cherish regional products. Behind this cider lies the story of a fox, who’s nicking only the best of apples from Austria’s orchards, to make delicious cider from 100% Austrian apples and pears. This slick mixture of sweet and sour apples creates a refreshingly lively drinking experience. 

Stibitzer Cider is available in the two delicious sorts apple and apple-pear – But that’s a story you should let the fox himself tell you.

OLD MOUT

OLD MOUT – PRONOUNCED INCORRECTLY SINCE 1947

Old Mout Cider from New Zealand doesn’t only surprise when it comes to taste – In fact, Old Mout rhymes with „Fruit“! Sounds remarkable, and tastes exactly like that.

Displaying the cheeky Kiwi in its logo, Old Mout obviously stands for flamboyant taste combinations. So, everyone who considers themself a cider fan and likes to try new things should try their luck with the refreshing sorts Kiwi & Lime or Passion Fruit.

 

With ist 4,5% alcohol and the lovely taste of red apples and tropical fruits, Old Mout truly is the bird of paradise among ciders.

STASSEN CIDRE

STASSEN – A WONDERFUL CIDRE

Stassen means Cidre-Finesse from four generations. Ever since 1895, the traditional Cidrerie from the Belgian town of Vallee d’Aubel has been producing Cidres of the highest level, which all stick out through their exceptionally fine fruity taste and a touch of pear juice.  

Containing 7,4% of alcohol, Stassen Cidre Brut can be served as both aperitif and alongside dishes. Every single cidre coming from the Stassen Cidrerie is produced using a special sort of apple, from 100% apple juice and free of dyes and aromas.


You can tell: Nature presents itself from its best of sides, if you meet it with the level of compassion it deserves.
