About Briska

Briska is crafted in cooperation with Kiviks Musteri under the expert supervision of Cider Master Bengt Akesson - the 4th generation of the celebrated family which founded and still operates the Kiviks Musteri.  In 1888, Henrik Akesson started growing fruit on the coastal hills outside Kiviks, and in 1935 the Kiviks Musteri commenced cider production.  This family owned and operated brewery still uses the same traditional cider-making methods to guarantee the highest quality cider.
