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.

We value small over big.

  • Amazing time! The lady was really instructive and friendly, and the cider was sooo delicious! I especially liked the sunshine cider, it's light, sweet and refreshing. Would definitely recommend for anyone wanting to experience authentic cider from a family owned business.

  • DELICIOUS ciders! The champagne style cider was especially delicious, and so unique (the only one in QLD!). So glad Sunshine Coast Cider was a stop on our trip 🙂
