Made from the best Tasmanian Apples!
Tasmania’s rich apple growing history dates back to 1788, when Captain William Bligh planted Australia’s first apple tree at Adventure Bay, Bruny Island. Since then, Tasmania has been producing a broad range of apple varieties, exporting them both national and internationally.
Using produce sourced from this very region, Captain Blighs sets out to produce a range of premium ciders, using 100% Tasmanian apples and pears.
About Tasmanian Apples!
The Tasmanian pome fruit industry primarily involves the production of apples, and a lesser volume of pears, for local, interstate, export and processing markets. The State is largely self-sufficient in supplying its own nursery needs and it makes a significant contribution to supplying interstate customers with nursery trees and rootstock.
Tasmania’s temperate maritime climate has cool winters essential for optimum chilling requirements, and a long mild growing season from September to May which offers ideal conditions for fruit development and ripening of a full range of premium apple varieties.
