The cider ferments in stainless steel vats. If calvados is made by double distillation (high temperature extraction), Givre is made by cooling the cider to very low temperature. At these temperatures, crystals of ice form. They are separated from the liquid, which is thereby enriched with sugar, alcohol and body. Eight stages of chilling are needed in order to obtain Givre.
Density (O.G.): 1050 after pressing, equivalent to 105 g of sugar per litre.
