Default Ice Cider

I was watching "How it's Made" last night and they showed an episode where they made Ice Cider. Anyone ever try this?

These guys make an ice cider that I've enjoyed. It's sold (and sampled) at the NYC Greenmarkets, among other NY locations.

I made some inadvertently over the Christmas vacation. I left 2 growlers of some home made cider in the snow to chill at the in-laws house and it snowed like crazy over night. The roof shed a bunch of snow and the growlers were buried. I forgot about them for a day and when I pulled one out, it had a nice core of ice in the middle. We poured off the liquid and it was very tasty. Definitely stronger and also felt that it had a better flavor. I'll do a 5 gallon batch later in the winter or next year. Have fun!
