Paul Ullrich brand manager Ilona Grau-Tschopp said: “We have done research with the goal to find the best craft cider liquid on the market and came across Galipette Cidre. 

“The flavors and aromas combined with the fact that the product is made of 100% cider apple juice with no added sugar or sweeteners, makes the offering unmatched.”
