French invader will bring alcohol-free cider to UK

Norman Sassy cider is preparing to market its 0% ABV organic cider on the British coast in December.

Xavier d’Audiffret Pasquier de Sassy said: “What William the Conqueror has started, Sassy aims to pursue, an all-conquering invasion of the gastronomic shores of Britain.

“This is the first time in 169 years that we have created a 0% organic Sassy cider, which is strange because low alcohol ciders have been in my family’s blood since we made the first cider at Château de Sassy in Normandy in 1852.

“Our goal has been to create something beautiful and refreshing, effervescent with complex flavors. We wanted it to have appealing layers of flavor, denying the fact that it wouldn’t have alcohol to give it that usual texture and potency.

Sassy said she used a variety of five types of apples, grown in her family’s orchards, for cider because of their own special flavors and attributes that will add to the mix. “These apples are exclusively cider apples, rather than apples to eat or cook,” said d’Audiffret Pasquier.

Sassy UK Sales Director Alexander Darley added: “We see a huge opportunity for Sassy 0% Organic in both non-business and hospitality. Just look at Seedlip’s success in alcohol-free spirits; and Heineken 0%, Brooklyn Special Effects and others in beer.

The Sassy Organic Cider has an MSRP of £ 1.10 per 27.5cl and will be available on the Corbin & King websites as well as Direct Wines and Laithwaites.
