Australia joins international cider celebration!
1 Jun 2017
Cider lovers across the globe will salute this unique fermented apple beverage on its international day of celebration.
World Cider Day will be held on Saturday June 3rd, with events and specials happening at venues across Australia.
Cider Australia President Sam Reid said the day would promote the flourishing cider culture which has taken root in the apple growing regions of Australia and major towns and cities.
“World Cider Day is an opportunity for consumers to learn more about the origins of cider and different styles and to feel part of something global”, said Mr Reid.
World Cider Day was initiated in the Northern Hemisphere where June marks the beginning of summer and apple cider season, while in Australia cider makers are starting to emerge from the busy harvest season.
“As vintage concludes it is the perfect time for the cider industry to slow down, take stock and enjoy the fruits of their labours”, Mr Reid said.
“This is the best time in history for Australians to appreciate cider and perry with so many different brands and styles of cider on offer from around the world”.
“Cideries and other venues are hosting some great events this weekend and I encourage everyone to head on down for some fun,” said Mr Reid.
