Jaanihanso makes true apple cider in Kaelase village, Pärnu county. The traditional local juicing apples are juiced on the spot in late autumn, just as they ripe. At Jaanihanso, cider is not boiled, filtered or carbonated. Cider matures and clarifies in bottles using the same method as is used for making the best champagne. A small and intense carbonation appears in the bottles as a result of natural fermentation. After maturing in bottles for months, sediment is removed from the bottle by freezing the neck of the bottle. Each Jaanihanso cider is a handmade product resulting from a production process that takes nearly a year. That is what cider is supposed to be like.
