Fancy a real Cider?

01 November 2017|Cider

We should be called Fine Wine, Beer, Cider and Spirits Delivery Co. but that would be too long… we do however have a great range of all and for the warm summer months we thought it appropriate to feature the fine ciders New Zealand has to offer.

There is far more to cider than the sugared-up faux-ciders sold by outlets where quality is not paramount! These three apple ciders are some of the finest the country has to offer. All three use 100% pressed apple juice, are estate grown and have no additives or preservatives. Sure, there’s a range of styles from dry to medium-dry, but all are balanced, full of flavour and perfect for any occasion. FWD Co has a whole section in our chillers dedicated to good quality cider, so if you’re after something clean, crisp and refreshing then give a cider a go. Shop now...

"There’s nothing quite like a glass of cold cider on a hot summer’s day… it’s the adult version of pinching an apple from the neighbour’s orchard (not that I ever did that…) Cider is so thirst-quenching because it’s generally quite high in acidity, as well as being lighter than most modern craft beers (including the alcohol level). These three ciders are among the best I’ve tasted this year. They’re all very enjoyable and unique in their own way, plus pair very well with light summer food. I’ll be enjoying mine with a salad nicoise, but cider and cheeseboards are always fun for pairing." Adrian Heyes - Wine & Beer Buyer


Tutu Cider Fuji Apple Cider 2016

Made from 100% Nelson grown Fuji apples, it was voted Champion cider, which isn’t surprising given its dry Riesling-like qualities and great complexity. AT 5% ABV, it’s a lovely sessionable summer bevvy.
