Willie Smith’s have a new limited release cider on the market. It’s named after what’s in it, “18 Varieties Apple Cider”. Willie’s have collected 18 of their favorite old English and French apple varieties to make a top shelf cider.
2015 has been another massive growth year for cider in Australia and around the world. I’ve tasted more ciders this year than ever before. More than that, the quality is improving.

Apple Cart Cider is the 2nd vintage release by Rusty Bike Wines. Table cider is a small category of the market but it is one of my favorites. The idea is that a large bottle of cider with higher alcohol and deep flavours is designed to be shared over a meal. So does the apple cart fit the bill?
This week there is a new cider hitting the shelves. Granite Belt Cider Co. is the latest to launch a new cider. Treehouse Cider is their debut release. What makes Granite Belt Cider Co. unique is the fact that it uses Australia’s most northerly commercially grown apples. So How does that affect the Taste?
