Cider & Distilled

The good times just keep on pouring

The High Country of Victoria is renowned for producing some of the most delicious, crunchy apples in the country, so it was a natural progression that crisp, vibrant cider would follow. These local ciders take advantage of the bounty of local fruit, producing cider that is truly reflective of the region.

And while we're on local flavours, let us introduce you to our highly regarded gin distilleries. Local botanicals, deep passion and commitment to producing exceptional gin are key to this aromatic and popular spirit.

The taste of the High Country comes from the people, the produce and the place.
