What do most Swabians think of when they hear the word “cider keg”? Exactly: they think of Speidel. Because whoever has cider in the basement, most likely has it in a Speidel container - at least in little, old Swabia.
Not without good reason have Speidel cider containers become almost a generic term: Over 100 years of experience leave their mark. The high quality makes the containers and tanks extremely durable and users are impressed by the carefully thought-out details: Handles that are strong enough, for example. Large openings so you can easily reach inside. A cover that does not keep turning so that the rubber seal is not damaged but instead fits snugly. Food safe, colourless, low-pressure polyethylene with an extra smooth inner wall that is particularly easy to clean. And an airlock that you can treat as roughly as you like without the plastic splintering.
All these are fine details that might not be immediately obvious, but when you’ve got annoyed at a cheap container, you learn to appreciate these things. So, these advantages have ensured that the white containers with the orange-coloured lids have become a trademark.
This reputation for quality applies not only to cider containers, but to all Speidel products. But in the progression from tree to glass, it is not only the quality that is important. What we see as crucial is that all our home cider making products are food-safe, even the fruit grinder and the juicer. With the proverbial Speidel quality, you are on the safe side.What do most Swabians think of when they hear the word “cider keg”? Exactly: they think of Speidel.
