Brady's Lookout Cider

Tasmanian bushranger Matthew Brady was brought to justice in 1826 and the spectacular outlook over the Tamar Valley where he based himself is now named after him. Just a few kilometres away, Chris and Caroline Brown built a cider mill to produce award-winning premium ciders that are adventurous and full of life; just like the spirit of a bushranger.

Brady’s Lookout Cider is Australia’s only cider producer dedicated to 100 per cent Méthode Traditionelle production. Utilising traditional sparkling wine techniques and the flavours of heritage apples, their ciders are small batch and carefully hand-crafted.

Chris and Caroline have a long family heritage of Tasmanian cider makers and orchardists. Their ethos is to be hands-on, true to traditional techniques and sustainable in practice. Their vision is to produce the best Méthode Traditionelle cider in Australia. A former pear and walnut orchard, their property has recently been transformed and now features a heritage apple orchard and cider mill. With more than 80 rare apple varieties, some of which have not been planted in Australia for many years, the orchard is nurtured using organic principles with the aim to introduce unique flavours into their ciders.

The recently established cider mill has been lovingly built by Chris and Caroline, who want to create something that is unique in the Tamar Valley and deeply rooted in Tasmania’s history. The cladding on the mill was originally from Launceston’s Seaport boardwalk; the seating from the Princess Theatre in Launceston; the apple grader from their family orchard in the Huon Valley; the steel beams from the Burnie Wharf; and the iron bollards from the Hobart Wharf.

Their appetite for all things Tasmanian inspired them to work with Tasmania’s number one cooking coach, recipe developer and freelance chef Sylvia Devlin from Sylvia’s Kitchen Tasmania to create this recipe that perfectly matches their cider.
