Delicious, traditional cider

Born out of the tradition from 25 generations of Cider making – we celebrate Queensland fruit in making the best cider. No shortcuts, just delicious, traditional cider.

Good apples make great cider

Arrow 2 Right

Selected apple farmers on the Granite Belt grow the apples we choose. The chilly winters and their high farming standards ensure we can source premium apples right here in Queensland. Working with the farmers is what our Cider Maker Martin Rellstab enjoys most. As a master apple grower of 18 years, Martin knows his apples and what is required to make good cider.

How we make our cider

Arrow 2 Right

We start with choosing the right apples and juicing the fruit while it is fresh and full of flavours. We carefully ferment the sweet juice to delicious cider before giving it plenty of time to mature. It is only after this maturation phase that we bottle and sell our cider.

Our process

Our approach

We only have one planet. We look after it.
We choose local farmers and suppliers.
We value small over big.
We re-use and reduce.
We care for each other.

We love our Sunset Cider. Lightly carbonated, medium sweetness and packed with flavour. Perfect for sunset…. or anytime really. Experience Sunshine Coast Cider’s Sunset Cider at your next sunset picnic. Stop by our cellar door, or you can even shop online! (Cute, pink packaging is an added bonus to the flavour).

Here at Sunshine Coast Cider, we know that great apples make greater Cider. That’s why we keep close relationships with only a few selected Queensland farmers (just like John Dere who is pictured here in Amiens, QLD) so that we can ensure love and quality are going into every step. In that process, we continue to support locals and ensure the juiciest, tastiest, and most full of flavour, 100% Queensland apples and pears.

  • 5 star review  We really enjoyed the tour of Sunshine Coast Cider, and hearing Martin's story behind his vision to bring cider - apple-based - champagne to Australia. All the ciders we tried were very refreshing and tasty, but we did particularly enjoy the apple cider champagne. It was very light, tasty and more refreshing than a standard sparkling wine. It was also fascinating to hear how it's made.
