One of the newest ciders to hit the Australian market is Sitting Ducks Cider from the Adelaide Hills.
"Essentially the sitting ducks brand evolved around competing & dealing with multi nationals as they keep putting pricing pressure on small family owned business’s.Hence, we are sitting ducks ! " he said.
Starting out with a pear cider aptly titled Peary the team at Sitting Ducks Cider have only recently added an apple variety to their range.
Both ciders are made using 100% fresh juice sourced from the Ashton fruit Co-op in the Adelaide Hills. The fruit is handpicked in the cooler climate of the Adelaide Hills which gives this cider a natural straw like colour and earthy taste.
This cider is more of a traditional style well balanced cider. With light apple aromas, it has a fine carbonation and is not very sweet. A medium acidic profile creates a very refreshing cider. This is definitely a cider that beer drinkers will enjoy as it is somewhat yeasty and has minimal sweetness.
At 6% alcohol this is one of the stronger ciders on the market. A 330ml bottle will provide you with 1.6 standard drinks.
This cider is great served with or without ice. It will pair well with spicy Asian flavours and/or roast barbecued meats.RRP
Single 330ml bottle $4.99

Carton (24) $79.99
