Owning the cider niche, that is pear (Poiré) ciders!
Ferme De L'Yonniére in Normandy is one of the best pear cider producers globally - and that is the truth! The man behind is Jerome Forget, and he is producing cider from a wide range of different varieties. All spontaneously fermented, unfiltered and 100% natural. He also produces some fantastic alcohol-free ciders.
Pear cider represents a niche within cider production since pear juice can cause challenges in fermentation. The delicate, elegant and subtle sweetness of the pear can simply be lost in the process and is hard to balance. When made carefully and with the experience of Jerome Forget, it can be brilliant.
