Cider, good cider, is about as traditional as it gets. Adding native Australian finger limes, grown here in the Northern Rivers, is not so traditional!
Byron Bay Wild Cider is a family owned business based in the region, producing premium cider using all Australian grown ingredients. The Finger Lime and Apple Cider is both refreshing and unique. Finger limes are native to Australia, and specifically to the northern NSW and south-eastern Queensland. Used by the Aboriginal people for thousands of years, they are enjoying a resurgence in culinary use thanks to their unique caviar-like flesh and lemon-lime flavour. They make a great addition to cider and will appeal to anyone who likes a crisp, dry beverage.
And while we love the Finger Lime and Apple cider, keep an eye out for their other brew: Quandong & Pear. Quandong is a native peach which is tart, but highly nutritious with twice the vitamin C of an orange.
