Batlow Premium Cider

Chances are you have eaten a Batlow apple; they are one of Australia’s biggest apple producers. Established in 1922, the cooperative is also one of Australia’s oldest. With this bountiful supply of apples, a cider was sure to follow. In fact ciders have been in Batlow almost since the beginning of the co-op. Just recently they re-entered the market as the demand for cider in Australia reaches an all time high, producing both a cloudy and the Batlow Premium Cider. Lets have a look at the premium.

Two Metre Tall Real Tasmanian Apple Cider

Two Metre Tall is probably the most diverse producer that I have reviewed. Not only do they produce top notch cider but beef and beers as well. The 600ha small farm is in a pretty unique position in the Derwent Valley, low rain fall but access to the Derwent River. The apple are grown in the Huon Valley . But one of the most interesting things about this cider is the example that it provides to other Cider makers and the Australian government in regards to what should be on a label.

Normally when I’m looking for a cider to review I go to a local interdependent bottle shop.

I looked up and down the “cider” fridge: Kopperberg, Mangers, Bulmers, this isn’t looking good.That should have been my first clue . Then I saw one that I hadn’t seen before. The Streamrail Silky Spider Apple Spider.

Dickens Old English Cider

Dickens Cider, such a pun worthy name for a cider company. Today I’m reviewing the Dickens Old English Cider.
Like most of the other guys from the Tassie, the cider is made from real apples. And why wouldn’t you. The state has, what are probably Australia best apple growing conditions.
The Dickens family had a few drinks back in 2008 in their home which just happened to be a converted apple cold store. They decided to make cider. Today they now own a cider house and produce a range of ciders. Today I’m trying their Old English.

Red Sails Medium Dry Gold Cider Review

Red Sails Medium Dry Gold Cider is the first bottle conditioned, keeved cider I’ve reviewed. When a medical researcher retired he set about cider making.
