JOACIM AND FIONA - BRAMLEYS
Bramleys is the name of the Swedish apple-growing business run by Joacim Holgersson and his English wife Fiona. Why Bramleys? For the simple reason that Fiona grew up on a farm called Bramleys. Also, one of the couple’s favourite apple varieties is Bramleys – a sharp but gently aromatic fruit. Bramleys now have over 17,000 apple trees made up of 100 different varieties, all over the Skaraborg region. Aside from organic apples, the company grows pears and giant blueberries.
WHAT IS IT THAT MAKES BRAMLEYS PRODUCTS SO SPECIAL?
Joacim claims it’s the terroir – the climate, soil and location all working together. Apples grown on Kinnekulle and Mosseberg have their own definite character and taste. The cold northern climate also makes the apples grow slowly, giving them lots of flavour. A slow maturation gives better apples with a good balance between sweetness and acidity. Sounds like a quote from a wine guide but those who are interested in the palate’s flavours know that our tastebuds don’t differentiate. A voyage of discovery where both apples and wine have their own unique place.
A HISTORIC AND CULTURAL PLEASURE
Apple juice with the taste of Kinnekulle, Mosseberg and Vinninga, where apple trees have always had their roots, is as good to drink straight down as an accompaniment to a meal. The liquid apple has its very special character. A drink that is a must for everyone who wants to enjoy an alcohol-free drink with an adult taste.
Bramleys’ organically certified juice is always made from organic Swedish apples and our apple and ginger juice is also totally organic.
This juice is made of a blend of traditional Swedish apples and pears from gardens around the Skaraborg region. The fruit is pressed at our own cidery on Kalland.
APPLE JUICE WITH BERRIES
We also press our Swedish juice with berries and other fruits, based entirely on access to outstanding raw products, which often makes for interesting combinations!
AUTUMN AND WINTER
In the colder months we make our glogg – apple juice with traditional spices and absolutely no added sugar. We will also be adding beetroot juice to our range shortly!
