About the Makers of Spreyton Cider Co

Pure Tasmanian Spreyton Cider

Great cider starts with great fruit and that’s what we’ve been growing since 1908!

The Spreyton Cider Story starts in the mid-1800s, and since 1908 we have been growing apples in this picturesque valley. For four generations we have grown the highest quality fruit for the people of Tasmania and the world.

In 2011 it was time for the next step and Spreyton Fresh began experimenting with their first cider ferments and on the strength of those early experiments, the Spreyton Cider Co. was launched.

The company made the decision to keep the entire cider production process in-house as that was the only way to ensure that our products would be made with the quality and integrity that is central to everything we do.

So in 2012 we began construction of our cider manufacturing facility and cellar door and employed a full-time cider maker.

When Spreyton Fresh – the parent of Spreyton Cider Co, was established in 1998 to begin making fresh apple juice, Spreyton also became synonymous with fantastic real apple juice that tasted like apples!

GINGER BEER – 330mls – Spreyton


330 ml can.

The Spreyton Hard Ginger Beer is a naturally fermented Ginger beer based on a family recipe dating back to the 1800s. Using only Ginger, Lemon, Tartaric acid (from grape skins) and yeast to give it its unique flavour.

In a land of migrants like Tasmania it is unusual to find a family that is 5 generations Tasmanian on both sides. While one side ploughed the land and planted apple trees, the other half were busy ploughing the seas!

One of our Great, Great Grandfather’s, was a Hobart based Master Mariner. The story goes that he never went to sea without a keg or two of Ginger Beer, made to his own recipe, which he swore was the best cure for sea sickness! Stepping ashore for the last time in the 1890’s he switched from the stormy seas to the rambunctious life of a waterfront publican, one thing however remained the same, there was always a keg of Ginger Beer on the go behind the bar!

We have been able to piece together this family recipe from old notebooks and other family heirlooms and hope you enjoy the traditional flavours as much as we do!
