Last night saw the awards ceremony for the Australia’s best ciders at the 2015 Cider Australia Awards. Last year, somewhat controversially, the top gong went to the British cider maker Thatchers with their Somerset Gold. This year the top award stayed local. Willie Smith’s 18 Varieties limited edition taking out the Best in Show award. Results After the break.
Is your favourite ‘local’ cider helping to employ Australians and value-add to our horticulture industry? Chances are, you probably aren’t aware where the apples and pears used to make your cider are from – it’s a major issue Cider Australia is trying to rectify.
Every product you eat from the supermarket has a label. This label tells you what ingredients go into your food. New labelling laws are about to come into effect. Country of origin labels mean you’ll be able to tell if what you are eating is Aussie grown and processed or if it’s imported. This is great for knowing about what you eat,but what about what you drink? Alcohol has been left of the bill and Cider drinkers have the most to loose.
