We like to keep things simple here at Daylesford Cider and only use fresh apple juice in our ciders. We do not use juice concentrate or water, nor flavourings, colouring, additives or other nasties. We pride ourselves on this and received great recognition for our ciders at the Australian Cider Awards 2016.
Daylesford Cider received 5 medals at the Australian Cider Awards 2016; 1 Gold & Best In Class, 1 Silver and 3 Bronze.
It is the English-heritage apple varieties we grow on our farm which make our ciders so wonderful. Across the range of apples we have a great mix of sharps, bittersharps, bittersweets and sweet apples which result in complex ciders with a great palate, nose and golden/amber colours.
We currently have 7 ciders available at our Tavern cellar door; 3 traditional ‘still’ ciders, 2 carbonated and 2 draught ciders on tap which are unique to the Tavern and only a handful of other venues. Please see below for a list of venues where you can find Daylesford Cider.
Our traditional ‘still’ range is made up of Farmhouse Dry, ‘alf ‘n ‘alf, and Sweet Coppin. Although quite uncommon in Australia, un-carbonated cider is very common overseas and is becoming increasingly popular and recognised within the Australian cider market.
The two sparkling ciders each offer something different; ‘Summer Pétillant’ is fuller fruited with a very delicate carbonation, and the new ‘Vintage Dry’ has a complex mouthfeel, a dry palate and echoes ciders made in the UK.
