This Week's Food News - Batlow Cider




May was a big month for Batlow Cider. Not only did they host their annual Ciderfest in the small country town of Batlow, nestled in the foothills of the Snowy Mountains, they also launched their mulled cider into Sydney venues. And who doesn’t like mulled cider? This week I sampled their Cloudy Cider and their Premium Cider. The former is an unfiltered, sweet cider that is lovely to drink, while the latter is crisp, with a more sophisticated dryness and complexity, more akin to a wine. As a result the Premium Cider is a better food match (think roast pork with crackling) while the Cloudy Cider is perfect for quaffing alone. And rest assured, when you’re drinking Batlow Cider, you’re drinking local. The company is completely Australian owned, and the product is made here, from three-and-a-half Batlow apples per bottle, which are also grown here. And they don’t add sugar or concentrates either. You can pick up your own four-pack of Batlow Cloudy Cider [RRP $15.99] at Corkscrew Cellars in Darlinghurst, or head into The Royal Hotel in Leichhardt or the Quarrymans Hotel in Pyrmont to wrap your mitt around a mug of hot mulled cider. It’s almost enough to make you like winter...
