About Tin Shed Cider
The Story so far...
A casual conversation around the idea of using the fresh produce from an existing but neglected apple orchard on a small rural property overlooking the Mansfield Valley began the journey. Several years of research, experimentation and planning ensued before Tin Shed Cider was officially launched in late 2012.
Now iIn its third year, Tin Shed Cider is producing a traditionally crafted STILL cider with no additives. Pure fresh apple juice, fermented to produce a chemical free alcoholic drink that tastes like apples. No preservatives, no added sugar and no added water. Very different to the commercially produced carbonated ciders, this cider appeals to a select sector of this rapidly expanding market.
To extend the appeal to a broader market a SPARKLING variety was launched in late 2014. With a low level of carbonation and minimal preservative to guarantee shelf life for distribution through supermarkets and other outlets the sparkling cider maintains the Tin Shed Cider philosophy of using only Victorian apples with no added sugar or water.
The Cellar Door has been developed and displays a number of interesting relics from the district. Some old stables were rescued from a nearby property to frame a “museum” area and the history is being detailed in the interest of local heritage and conservation.
A certified food premises processing room within the shed allows visitors to view the “workings” of a traditional craft Cidery.
