Willie Smiths is Australia’s first certified organic cider. It’s made in the Huon Valley on the farm where William Smith first started orcharding in 1888. The orchard is currently run by Andrew, the 4th generation of Smith family to farm in the Huon. It’s probably fair to say they have their roots in the region.
Willie Smiths cider is made from fruit grown on the family farm – which is also where the crushing, fermenting, ageing and bottling takes place. To be organic, Willie Smiths grows and processes its apples without the use of synthetic chemicals or GMOs.
The cider is inspired by traditional cider-making techniques of northern France. It’s crafted and matured in French oak vats to deliver a truly distinctive farmhouse style cider, full of character and flavour.
And the best place to taste Willie Smiths Cider? That would be The Apple Shed – the cider-maker’s cellar door and apple museum. Originally built in 1942, the building has been restored and remade into place where you can enjoy some of Tasmania’s best food and drink, then take in the Huon Valley’s incredible apple history.
