ORANGE F.O.O.D WEEK
Small Acres Cyder
International and national award winning local cider producer Small Acres Cyder is known for its unique and refreshing style of traditional ciders. Since opening its doors ten years ago Small Acres has won the trifecta in the Australian Cider Awards - Best Australian Cider, Best Australian Perry and Most Successful Small Producer. They remain the only cider company in Australia to have won all three and have won over 100 other industry awards, including gold at the Sydney Fine Food Awards for their non-alcoholic ciders.
Small Acres has always stayed true to what it believes in - real cider made from 100% real fresh fruit, made by real people. It is an 'orchard to bottle' journey where the cider apples come from a specially developed and planted orchard of English and French variety cider apples (not your usual eating apple), picked when ripe and immediately crushed, the juice blended and then fermented to produce a wide and diverse range of ciders with no added sugar, flavourings or water.
Small Acres produces a range of seven premium ciders where apple or pear flavour is king. Each vintage represents seasonal variations whilst bottle conditioning in the premium sparkling range adds complexity and character. The pub range is sessionable and refreshing, the non-alcoholic range delicious.
The cidery is open each weekend for tastings and sales.
