KANGAROO ISLAND CIDERS
We have had a long association with Graham and Mary Jones, Larry and Graham met at an essential oil seminar in Adelaide in 1993. Graham helped us with our Eucalyptus research. A lad called Adam Steer chose us as his subject and we did alot of research to selectively breed a higher yielding and disease resistant variety of tree, but that’s another story. Through that work Graham and Mary fell in love with Kangaroo Island and purchased a property near us and Kangaroo Island Ciders began with the planting of an apple orchard in 2004.
Since then they have planted over 30 different cider apple varieties including dessert apples, and have over 600 trees. In 2011, they introduced a medium dry Colony Cove Original Cider and in 2012, the medium sweet Colony Cove Draught Cider. Later introducing a Vintage and a Non Alcoholic.
The official launch of Kangaroo Island Ciders was on the 17th of November 2012 at Emu Ridge.
All ciders have won numerous local and national awards. It walks out of our doors it really is a delicious drop!
Emu Ridge are proud to have been chosen the Winners for the Best Farm Gate and Cellar Door Experience for 2016, and Best Farm Gate 2017 and 2018. Click this link if you would like more info on Kangaroo Island Ciders.
