5 GENERATIONS
OUR STORY

Great cider starts with great fruit and that’s what we’ve been growing since 1908!

The Spreyton Cider Story starts in the mid-1800s, and since 1908 we have been growing apples in this picturesque valley. For four generations we have grown the highest quality fruit for the people of Tasmania and the world.

When Spreyton Fresh – the parent of Spreyton Cider Co, was established in 1998 to begin making fresh apple juice, Spreyton also became synonymous with fantastic real apple juice that tasted like apples!

Spreyton Cider Story Founding Member

Spreyton Cider Co. was launched

In 2011 it was time for the next step and Spreyton Fresh began experimenting with their first cider ferments and on the strength of those early experiments, the Spreyton Cider Co. was launched.

The company made the decision to keep the entire cider production process in-house as that was the only way to ensure that our products would be made with the quality and integrity that is central to everything we do.

So in 2012 we began construction of our cider manufacturing facility and cellar door and employed a full-time cider maker.

Spreyton Cider Company

AWARD WINNING CIDER

Since its inception, Spreyton Cider Co has won numerous awards for our cider in competitions all over Australia.

We have continued to develop the craft cider category by growing “cider specific” varieties of apples that will further improve the traditional ciders that we produce.

At Spreyton we are serious about real cider made from real apples and use both traditional and more contemporary techniques to ensure the quality of what we produce.
