In a truly unique and captivating adventure, explore Tasmania’s ciders and meet the passionate people behind them on a guided ‘cider tour’ trail. Meet the makers and uncover the stories, the dedication and the passion of Tasmania’s cider makers. Pair your favourite Tasmanian cider with world-class local recipes as you discover the simplicity and freshness of local produce.

While learning about the varieties of ciders you can even get a history lesson on the state itself. Like how did Tasmania become known as the Apple Isle? It seems obvious in retrospect – how could somewhere nicknamed the Apple Isle not be amazing at making cider? But it actually took Tasmania over 100 years to become renowned for fermenting its fruit. Whether traditional drops made from honest-to-goodness cider apples, or sweeter, bubblier new varieties that draw from Tasmania’s existing dessert and culinary apples, this unique bunch of ciders is made with passion, love and natural ingredients.
