La Ferme d'Hotte - Grand Cidre Boemius du Pays D'Othe (750 mL)

Grand Cidre Boemius is a semi-dry cider from la Ferme d'Hotte - from the Pays d'Othe region in Northeastern France. This French cider has a mild sweetness, which elevates the fruitiness of the apples used to make this cider. Medium levels of tannins and acid in perfect balance. The finish on this cider is drier as the tannins persist. Flavor notes of fresh, apples - both tart and bittersweet. Juicy citrus, apple butter, a touch of caramel, and fresh rain. A lovely sparkling cider - toast worthy or pair with nearly anything on your dinner table. 

After blending together a delicious blend of heirloom apples, they are slowly pressed and the juices ferment naturally (spontaneous/wild fermentation) without any sulfur additions. The cider then undergoes a second fermentation in bottle, then is aged for 2+ years before disgorgement. 

La Ferme d'Hotte translates to The Farm of Hotte - Hotte being the family name. Théo Hotte produces cider using 100% organic estate grown fruit on his family's farm. A fifth generation farmer on this family's orchards, Théo's ciders are made using various apple varieties native to their area of France, including Avrolles, Locard, Nez Plat, Chatagnier Bondon, Petit Jaune, Jolibois, Sebin, and Vérolot, among others. All of his ciders are spontaneously fermented using native/wild yeast, and allowed to age upwards of 2 years before bottling. Certified Organic and No Added Sulfate/Sulfites. 

The Aube region in Northeastern France is where some of the first ciders in France were produced - in an area known as the Pays d’Othe. This region is heavily forested countryside filled with rolling hills. La Ferme d’Hotte is just minutes from Montgueux, home to some of the most prized Chardonnay vines in Champagne. On the family's farm you won’t find grapes, rather apple orchards rooted in the region’s famed Kimmeridgian soil. The soils are flint-rich clay over a limestone bedrock (French cider makers obsess over their soils!). Many native French cider apple varieties still thrive here. Apples grown in the area have exceptionally high acidity and bold minerality - both of which shine in cidre produced in this part of France. Cider has been made here since the Middle Ages. Today the Pays d’Othe is home to just ten cidermakers, and production in this region is overshadowed by France's more popular cider making regions of Normandy and Brittany.

If you're looking for a full case of this or any other cider, please e-mail us and we'll setup a special order for you. We can usually get more of any cider we feature in our shop, and offer a discount on full-case special orders. Most bottled ciders come in 12-bottle cases, and canned ciders come in 24-can cases. Some rare or limited ciders may not be eligible for a case order discount, but we can still get you a full case.

We ship cider in boxes that safely hold 4-bottles, 6-bottles, or 12-bottles. Order in one of those quantities (or multiples of those quantities) to maximize your shipping value. For example, if you order 2-3 ciders, there will be room left in the box and it won't meaningfully change the shipping costs to fill the box.

We do have 1-bottle boxes, but in most all instances it will cost the same to ship you a full 4-bottle box.

Shipping to a business address will usually save you a few bucks!

Shipping cost estimates:

  • Pacific Northwest/West Coast: Shipping anywhere in the Pacific Northwest or West Coast is relatively inexpensive. Almost all box sizes cost $16-21 to ship. Same is true for most destinations in the Mountain Time Zone.
  • Central Standard Time Zone / Midwest: A 4-bottle or 6-bottle box will usually cost $18-24 to ship. A 12-bottle box will usually cost $22-30 to ship. Variance depends on weight and how far from a FedEx/UPS shipping center your delivery address is.
  • East Coast: A 4-bottle or 6-bottle box will usually cost $20-25 to ship. A 12-bottle box will usually cost $25-35 to ship. Variance depends on weight and how far from a FedEx/UPS shipping center your delivery address is.

Important Shipping Information:

  • We are able to ship cider to most, but not all, states.
  • Legally, someone 21+ must be present at the time of delivery to sign for the cider. We cannot ship to PO Boxes or AFO/FPO addresses.
  • Shipping prices vary by weight and destination. How far you are from Seattle (where we ship from), and remote vs. central your shipping destination is, and how heavy your box is will make shipping vary.
  • The bigger the box, the less you pay in shipping on a per-bottle basis. We ship in 1, 4, 6, and 12 bottle boxes - order in those quantities for the best shipping value. The size of the box matters as much as the weight, so don't leave empty slots in your bottle box! Shipping 1-2 bottles will cost the same as shipping 4-6 bottles in most cases. Shipping a 12-bottle box is usually only $3-5 more than shipping a 4-6 bottle box.
  • Re-delivery and returns are the responsibility of the customer.
  • We don't recommend shipping during periods of extreme weather. If your area has weather of concern, please contact us and we can hold your order. 

We can usually accommodate rush requests for delivery or pickup. Please e-mail us at or call/text us at (206)395-4008.
