Fermentation: Fresh cherries are fermented for 20 hours in open tanks after being hand sorted selecting the best cherries in the ideal ripeness point. Once this first stage is finished the batch is moved to barrels in where the cherries go throUgh a second fermention for 90 hours in anaerobic form. For this specific lot we used the fermetation juices (mosto) of a different Sidra batch and add it to the barrel before sealing and extracting the air.

Drying Method: Dehydration in mechanical dryers for 12 hours at a temperature of 40°C then the cherries are moved to a terrace with african beds for 20 days. We monitored the temperature every 6 hours, if it exceeds the terrace is closed with a movable roof.
