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.

  • 5 star review  So glad Josh from Sunshine Coast Craft Beer Tours took us here because I wouldn't have known it existed otherwise. What an amazing couple with a beautiful story. The Brut Cider was simply stunning. So much love and an unbelievable amount of time and effort goes into making these ciders especially the Brut so do yourselves a favour and go try some top shelf cider that will change the way you think about cider!

  • 5 star review  Absolutely amazing venue. Martin and his wife make easily the best cider and sparkling cider brut in the world. I have been bringing tours to this venue now and out of the 1000s of people we have had onboard Tipsy Tours not 1 has even been dissapointed with this stop at Sunshine Coast cider. Well worth a stop, make sure you purchase at least the mixed pack to support local business. Coden Tipsy Tours Owner.
