Local ciders dominate Tasmanian Fine Food Awards

LOCAL business Plenty Cider has added to its medal and trophy haul by taking out the champion and reserve champion ciders at the Tasmanian Fine Food Awards. Only two gold medals were awarded to ciders, both to Plenty – one for its Cornucopia and the other for its Apple and Quince.

Owner Adam D’Arcy said the awards were evidence the business was on track to be the best cider range in the country. “We’re very proud of this success for sure and it backs up our success at last year’s Australian and International Cider Awards where we took out best in show and best producer,” he said.

New products have been released as the company has branched out into ginger beer and lemonade production. Both are available in cans and kegs and are made completely in house using traditional fermentation methods.

Plenty Cider has an undercover cellar door area at its production facility near the Salmon Ponds just outside New Norfolk. The brand was launched at the Taste of Tasmania in the summer of 2019/20 with Adam having started as a winemaker in South Australia.
