In 1888 William Smith’s Huon Valley orchard was planted. But it is Willie’s great-grandson, Andrew, who farms the land today and who took the farm organic over a quarter of a century ago.

As one of Australia’s first organic apple orchards and the first certified organic cidery, Willie Smith’s ciders are made from apples grown, crushed, fermented, and bottled on the farm.

Continuing this tradition of ‘letting nature do the hard work’, Willie Smith’s seasonal summer release utilises apple varieties to create fresh, zesty flavours. The return of the Sour Apple Cider means that summer is on the way.

Starring the heritage apple variety Sturmer Pippin, Willie Smith’s Sour Apple Cider is made from 100 per cent Tasmanian apples. Crafted to show just how racy, acidic and refreshing cider can be, every mouthful of this cider is a tropical fruit salad, with zesty lip-puckering goodness for those long, sun-drenched days and the perfect recipe for our cider of summer.

It comes in at six per cent ABV and is available in 355ml cans in cases of 16.

Willie Smith’s summer seasonal release Sour Apple Cider is available throughout Australia from October 2022 until sold out. There is limited supply of this summer favourite and if the first two releases are anything to go by, this year will sell out quickly too. Secure yours by contacting National Sales Manager Ben Cook.
