NZ Cider History

Take a look back through New Zealand's cider history

Cider History in the Nelson & Tasman Region

 Cider has a rich heritage in the Nelson/Tasman Region. Essentially Redwood Cellars (1947) and Rochdale Cider (1945) (McCashins) are the two longest established Cider producers. In recent times they have been joined by Peckhams Cider – specialising in traditional English style Cider, and a number of breweries complementing their beer range with a Cider. Between them Nelson produces around 60% of all the Cider produced in New Zealand. Nelson/Tasman is New Zealand’s second largest apple growing region and produces around a third of New Zealand’s apples (and the best quality!). A highly suitable location for The New Zealand Cider Festival!
