The Hills Cider Company
“We remain one of only a handful of cider producers in Australia that maintain a ‘land to hand’ level of control over each and every stage of production. with complete land to hand control over our product, we have less boundaries and are raising the bar of real cider in Australia.”
- Steve Dorman & Tobias Kline, Founders
Steve Dorman & Tobias Kline launched The Hills Cider Company in January 2010, with the goal of producing Australia's best cider.
Based in the Adelaide Hills, one of Australia’s oldest apple & pear growing regions, all The Hills Cider Company products are made from 100% Adelaide Hills fresh fruit. "Working closely with our growers our fruit is hand-picked, ensuring the balance and quality of the fruit meets our stringent specifications."
Using whole pieces of fruit and minimal intervention throughout production, we crush and filter our fruit cold, then begin fermentation immediately, to retain flavour, structure and delicate fruit aromatics.
This process is undertaken in small batches on a weekly basis, to guarantee the freshness of our product. It is this dedication to quality control that has seen our ciders become the most highly awarded and regarded in Australia.
Since our inception we have achieved unparalleled recognition as a benchmark for Australian cider reflected in Adelaide Hills Cider list of awards, including 3 years Best Pear Cider and 2013 Champion Australian Perry at the Australian Cider Awards, and back to back Gold Medal sand Best Cider at the Perth Royal Show.
