AVAL CIDER, Brittany

AVAL means apple in Breton, the traditional language in Bretagne, France, an area that's had more than 1000 years of experience in making cider, and is touted by insiders as the best cider region in the world. The cider AVAL combines five types of apples (Avrolle, Dous Coat, Douce Moën, Kermerrien, Marie Mesnard) exclusively from the region giving the drink a crisp and citrusy taste. It's the perfect balance between subtle sweetness and refreshing bitterness. Made in Bretagne, France.  From 100% pure apple juice (not from concentrate).  Naturally Gluten Free.  All-natural.  No added sugar.
