What is the purpose of certification?

The certification allows you to market your ice cider with the "Quebec Ice Cider", a Protected Geographical Indication (PGI).

The essentials
  • All stages of the production of the product, including the harvesting of the raw materials, storage, sugar concentration, pressure, fermentation and bottling must take place exclusively within the geographical zone defined.
  • Ciders made exclusively from the late varieties of apples, for which the sugar is strictly through the natural cold, without adding colouring or natural or artificial aromas.
  • Product evaluation by an external committee to evaluate the market quality of the product and ensure that the product has the required qualities in order to use the term ‘Quebec ice cider’.
