FRUKTSTEREO

Frukstereo is a collaboration between Karl Sjöström & Mikael Nypelius, who both worked as sommeliers in fine dining in Sweden. They prefer to call their products “Fruit Pet-Nat” rather than cider, as everything they make is fermented with natural yeast with zero additives. The fruit they work with comes either from home gardens or abandoned orchards, or is from waste fruit from local farmers. They make their pet-nats from apples, grapes, pears, plums, and sometimes a combination of all 4 of those. Their first commercial release was in 2016, so look for many new products to come from them in the future!
