Fruktstereo - Desencidre 2020 (750 mL)

Fruktstereo - Desencidre 2020 (750 mL)

A very special narwhal sparkling cider made from a blend of 80% apples (Aroma, Katja, and Cox Orange varieties), cofermented with 10% grapes, and 10% beets and wild blackberries and elderberries. The apples were grown and harvested in Axelstorp, a traditional orchard in the northwest Skåne that was planted in the 1940's and today managed without pesticides or herbicides by Magnus Nilsson. Wild blackberries and elderberries are from Malmö. Beets are from Nyplings farm in Gotland.  All fruits (and vegetables) cofermented for around two months with native yeast. Unfiltered and without additives.  Sparkling - serve well chilled. Juicy, tart, and very fruity with notes of tart green apple, blackberry, strawberry, and a subtle earthiness. 

Fruktstereo is a Swedish crew of former restauranteurs and sommeliers who began fermenting cider, fruit-nats, and natural wines using foraged fruit around their homes in Sweden in. In 2016, they acquired an old orchard with free standing trees once attached to a medieval farm. The orchard spans over 30 acres, all situated in the nature reserve of Verkeån, which is the largest river in Österlen (a tourist destination in Sweden known for its natural environment, historic buildings, fishing hamlets, small towns and farmland). The river runs through their orchard, or fruityard as they know call it after having planted different varieties of grapes, quince, and berries to compliment the already established classic Scandinavian varieties of apples, pears, and plums. 

Fruktstereo's cider, wine, and co-ferments are made without any additives and using sustainable grown produce local to their home in Sweden. Each cider is fermented using only native yeast, with no added sulphites/sulfites. Zero/zero natural fruit wines.

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.
