On the cider trail

After sizzling sausages at the garage sale at Cradoc on Saturday, we drove a few kilometres towards Cygnet to pop in at the Pagan Cider cellar door. We've tried some Pagan Cider at local restaurants before, but this time we tasted the full range plus a couple of 'cellar door only' samples, and picked up some four-packs to take home. Delicious whole fruit cider, no added sugar, unpasteurised. I particularly like the Rose apple cider with cherry juice added. And I love the artwork on their packaging, isn't it beautiful? It was refreshing to hear owner co-owner Harry Moses say he was looking forward to Frank's Cider opening over in Franklin, because it would complete the southern part of the Tasmanian cider trail for tourists and locals to visit. I like his thinking. The sectors of the food industry in Tasmania that work together - like the big salmon producers and the whisky makers - seem to be more successful at promoting and growing their market than those that view their 'competitors' as adversaries.
