Region of indulgence:
Hausruck pear & apple cider
Cider has a long history in the Hausruck district and the choice is now larger than ever. The fruit most commonly used in cider is the "Speckbirne", which creates the harmonious taste in the typical "pear & apple cider".
The cider used to be stored in large cider cellars which have been rediscovered over the past few years. Restored and newly designed they now form particularly homely attractions in rural farms. In addition to the many houses that still produce the "pear & apple cider" using traditional methods, some businesses have become specialised and now also offer a trendy new form of cider. Cider is raised to a new level when the cider sommelier tastes different types with his guests.
