Montieth's Crushed Apple Cider

Happy Cider Sunday!!

We are currently travelling in Tasmania and are having a great time sampling many of the wonderful foods and beverages on offer down here. I have had to post this one a day earlier as I won't have access tomorrow. However, you probably wont' read this until Sunday - So Happy Cider Sunday Everyone!!


This week's cider is comes from across the gap - another Montieth's from New Zealand. I decided to review their Apple Cider for this week's Cider Sunday having previously reviewed their Crushed Apple & Pear Cider which was fantastic by the way.



Again, this one is a pale, medium-bodied cider.  It is very crisp and refreshing and it is on-tap at our local pub in Balmain, so we choose it every time we visit. 

It is made using 100% apple juice and is pale in colour. A perfect Summer Cider!


It pairs really well with most foods and it's so easy to drink. 


We shared a case of this delicious cider with our friends and family over Christmas lunch and made sure we finished it off before we came down here to Tassie.

It comes in 330ml bottles and has a 4.5% alcohol content providing 1.2 standard drinks.

Dear Erin,

This is one of my favourite ciders but that 4.5% alcohol is deceptively light since it's almost like a full strength beer! :)

Hubby really likes this cider! Have fun in Tasmania-a lovely area to visit indeed :)

P.S. Your comment about the family dinner was very perceptive. I was almost homicidal at the time but calmed down upon reflection :P
