Sidewood Cider

With today’s consumers becoming more conscious of ingredients in products, Sidewood made the conscious decision not to add anything to its cider (other than apples and pears), when it commenced production in 2014.

Traditionally, mass-produced ciders can be comparatively sweet tasting as they often include concentrate or added sugar. Sidewood’s gluten-free and vegan-friendly product tastes as one would expect – like a fresh pear or apple. Based on tests conducted in October 2016 Sidewood Cider has one of the lowest sugar contents on the market:

SIDEWOOD APPLE CIDER SUGAR CONTENT: 1.8 g/100 ml

HIGHEST SUGAR OF APPLE CIDERS TESTED: 8.2 g/100 ml

AVERAGE OF THOSE TESTED (SAMPLE SIZE 15): 4.56 g/100 ml

Sidewood’s hand-crafted premium apple and pear ciders are sourced only from orchards in the cool climate of the Adelaide Hills. The six-week process starts within the orchards as the fruit is carefully hand-selected for flavour and acidity. To retain the fresh natural flavours the fruit is crushed and then cool fermented at the Sidewood Cidery within hours of picking.
