Galipette Cidre launches new Rosé SKU
Galipette’s new Rosé Cidre is now available to purchase from Waitrose stores UK-wide. The cider is made with the rare, red-flesh Pommes à Chair Rouge apples from the orchards of Brittany and Normandy, giving it the authentic rosé character, taste, and deep amber colour.
Pioneering the craft cider movement, with tradition at its heart, Galipette Cidre is already taking the UK by storm with its multi-award-winning product range. Joining the collection, the new Galipette Rosé is now available to purchase alongside the existing Galipette Brut from Waitrose in 330ml bottles, RRP £2.00.
Notes of fresh berries, aromas of blackcurrant leaf
In line with the ever-growing consumer demand for clean label beverages, Galipette Cidre allows its hand-picked French apples to take centre stage, without any unnecessary sugars, sweeteners or additives, resulting in 100-per-cent Pur Jus from the lush green orchards of northwest France. Indeed, all products in Galipette’s full range feature no added sugar or sweeteners, and are all naturally gluten-free and vegan-friendly.
The lightly textured rosé cider has notes of fresh berries, and aromas of blackcurrant leaf, transporting you to the orchards of the French countryside. Savour its fresh, bright acidity and satisfying taste, and let it help you dream of the long summer days to come.
Bringing centuries-old artisan methods to the UK cider market
Galipette brings something completely new and unique to the UK cider market as it uses the centuries-old artisan methods of keeving and wild yeast fermentation, which prevents the yeast from fully fermenting the cider apples so that their natural and fruity sweetness remains. These processes are rarely used any more within the cider category, making this a core differentiation between Galipette and the other ciders on offer within the UK market, and ensuring that there is no need for any unnecessary sugars, sweeteners or additives.
Galipette’s range provides the perfect balance, creating something modern yet authentic for the consumer that is looking for both style and substance.

The Galipette brand was born of collaboration and a long-running cooperative – one designed to give the apple farmers a future through banding together and securing enough scale, so they can continue to farm the land as they have for generations.
