The Bellarine Peninsula is where you’ll find the Flying Brick Cidery. This year’s special release is a master class in how to technically excel in cider making. The MC Cider is probably one of the most complex production methods. So how hard is it to make and is it worth the effort.
The best apple comes from places with cold winters and sunny summers. Victoria’s Alpine region fits the bill. So it was only a matter of time before the Nightingale Bros started to turn their Pink Ladies into the Alpine Cider Pink Lady Sweet Cider.
A year or so ago I had the Bilpin Archibald cider. It was pretty dry but it did have a little back sweetening. Now the guys at Bilpin Cider co have released a version with out the back sweetening fresh juice and it’s bottle conditioned. I have high hopes for this the Archibald Extra Brut Cider.
