Our Cellar Door has been keeping busy and the Award Winning Kangaroo Island Ciders sure are popular! All 500ml bottles. The Sparkler is non alcoholic $5.50 a bottle and the Draught is the sweeter one at $7.00 and Colony Cove med Dry at $7.00. They are very nice. We have great gift packs available with these products as well, and they a cheaper in packs of 4 or cartons. From a dozen trees planted 10 years ago on Kangaroo Island, Kangaroo Island Ciders is now producing a range of apple ciders to suit different tastes. Joint owner and cider maker, Graham Jones, has a long history as a lecturer in wine and cider making at Adelaide University and a lifelong interest in ciders. He also has the “onerous task” of being on the judging panel for the Australian Malt Whisky Society.
“I’ve always been interested in cider styles and their methods of production and looked around for interesting ciders when I was overseas” Associate Professor Jones says.
This professional and commercial interest has coincided with the resurgence of cider in Australia. Many commercial ciders in Australia are made with low-cost apple concentrate from overseas. Kangaroo Island Ciders produces its Colony Cove range from crushing apples from its 600 trees to produce quality, local ciders.
“Our aim in the longer term is to produce a range of traditional ciders made from old English apple varieties.” Meanwhile, you can try the Colony Cove range, including a non-alcoholic Apple Sparkler, at Emu Ridge Eucalyptus.
Graham and Mary Jones proprietors of Kangaroo Island Ciders began with the planting of an apple orchard on thier Kangaroo Island property in 2004.
Since then they have planted a range of cider apple varieties and also some dessert apples, so that now there are over 600 trees. In 2011, they introduced our medium dry Colony Cove Original Cider and in 2012, a medium sweet Colony Cove Draught Cider.
Both ciders have won local and national awards and have been mentioned in The World’s Best Ciders by Peter Brown and Bill Bradshaw.
They also produce a non alcoholic sparkling apple juice, Colony Cove Apple Sparkler.
