As part of the Centenary of ANZAC commemorations 2014-18, the 'Frank's Centenary Release' is now available.

A donation of 10c from each bottle sold will be made to support the important work of the R.S.L and from April, neck labels displaying the R.S.L. emblem will be found on every bottle of Frank's Cider.

Frank Clark enlisted in the A.I.F. in 1916 and served on the Western Front until 1918 and his brother Roy was an ANZAC at Gallipoli.

Upon returning home, Frank planted new orchards on his property at Franklin in Tasmania's Huon Valley and these orchards are still run by his family today, who are now the 5th and 6th generations.

Fruit from the trees Frank planted all those years ago, is still harvested every autumn and are used to create cider.

Granddaughter Naomie Clark-Port and her husband, Tony Port now own the Franklin Cider Co. and have named the cider in honour of Frank.

The Frank's range comprises the multi award winning Summer Apple, Summer Pear, Cherry/Pear and Autumn Apple Reserve ciders.

Frank's ciders are created form 100 per cent pure Tasmanian fruit, are gluten free and contain no added sugar. Each blend is medium sweet and sparkling, bursting with fresh fruit flavour, and has a crisp, refreshing finish.
