Small Acres Pink Lady Apple Cider has been named Champion Cider at the 2023 Sydney Royal Beer & Cider Show.
The Pink Lady Apple Cider is a relatively new addition to the Small Acres Cyder portfolio, being released last year. “The Pink Lady is an iconic apple in the cool Orange region, and so we decided to release it as a cider,” says co-owner Nick Geoghegan.
“It’s a traditionally made alcoholic cider reflecting the honeyed sweet and sharp taste of our locally grown fresh Pink Lady apples.
“We are thrilled with this accolade. We have received a number of awards at previous Sydney Royal Beer & Cider Shows, which gives us confidence in the consistency of quality that the Orange region can produce.
“Pink Lady apples are our favourite eating apple; the sweetness balanced by a lovely crisp acidity makes them a perfect fresh apple.
