Pagan Cider

Our Ciders

100%
Naked
Fruit

Our cups runneth over with the juice of real Tasmanian fruits: apples and cherries and berries and more. Our handcrafted Tasmanian premium ciders really celebrate the seasons.

Apple Cider

4.5% alc/vol

She’ll be apples! Four different kinds, in fact, are blended into our pure, elegantly refreshing, thirst-quenching apple cider — granny smith, gala, golden delicious and jonathon. A great all-rounder.

Tasting notes:

A sparkling apple cider with beautiful clarity and champagne-like bubbles. Fresh apple aromas with an effervescent apple tang and a lingering medium-dry finish. Serve well chilled.

Pear Cider

4.5% alc/vol

This enchanting pear and apple blend is soft and alluring: not too sweet, not too dry. The pear cider component is given extra love by being part fermented in chardonnay oak barrels; an apple infusion keeps it fresh and clean.

Tasting notes:

An enticing pear and apple cider blend (beurre bosc and packham pears and a dash of apples). Spicy pear flesh and skin on the nose, with subtle oak notes. Rich pear flavours given extra mouthfeel by partial barrel ageing, nicely balanced by a crunchy apple zip. Lovely on its own, or paired with spicy Asian cuisines.

Cherry Cider

8% alc/vol

Uniquely Tasmanian, our Cerise (French for ‘cherry’) is a purely Pagan innovation: a bewitching blend of rich dark cherry juice (from plump cherries grown in the orchard beside the cellar door) and dry apple cider.

Tasting notes:

A lush blend of cherry juice and dry apple cider, with a spicy perfumed nose and claret/burgundy hues. The palate hums with dark cherries and plums, with rich Christmas fruit cake notes. Great with crumbly cheddar.

Small Batch

Seasonal Small-Batch Blends

Throughout the year we also produce small-run blends, available from our cellar door in the Huon Valley, as well as a select few venues. These blends are highly sought, strictly limited-release, and sell out quickly.

Quince

8% alc/vol

An ambrosial, savoury blend of dry apple cider and fragrant quince. A celebratory tipple, begging for a champagne flute, and perhaps a cheese platter.

Wood-Aged Apple

9% alc/vol

Winning Best in Class at the 2016 Australian Cider Awards, and 100% barrel aged, this wonderful beast of a cider is one we’re super proud of.

Buy

Strawberry

8% alc/vol

Not sweet at all, despite a strawberry-jam nose. A blend of Cygnet strawberries and dry apple cider, with a tingly spine that finishes bone dry. Great with bitter dark chocolate.

Buy

Blueberry

8% alc/vol

Simply exquisite, this blushing beauty is blended from plump Tassie blueberries and dry apple cider, with exquisite notes of blueberry, violet and rose petal.

Buy

Apricot

8% alc/vol

The world is full of surprises! This intriguing drop looks innocent enough, but an intense apricot bouquet gives the game away. Venture deep and you’ll discover a perfectly balanced blend of pure apple cider fleshed out with the rich, round, characterful notes of real tree-ripened Tasmanian apricots.

Buy

Peach

8% alc/vol

Such a pretty complexion, and is that a subtle hint of citrus on the nose? In this special limited-release blend, a fine backdrop of apple cider plays a strong supporting role, allowing the enchanting flavour, sweetness and refreshing acidity of sun-kissed Tasmanian peaches to shine and soar.
