Hillbilly Cider is a crushed cider using Bilpin, Blue Mountains apples, made the simple way. Just apples with altitude and a bit of good old Hillbilly magic

Hillbilly Ciders produce 100% natural ciders with no added sugar or artificial flavours in the Blue Mountains region of New South Wales.

Their hillbillification process began when they moved to Bilpin in the Blue Mountains. A move to the mountains, growing their own food, sharing good times with friends over a glass of wine or a wild yeast cider, they realised to their delight they had become hillbillies.

A simpler life called for a simpler drink.

"Hillbilly" Shane, known locally as Dodge has over 100 yrs of outback farming history runing through his veins. Showing a certain amount of hillbilly irreverence, he planted the pioneering vineyard in the outback region of Warren/Nyngan NSW, 15 years ago. A gamble that paid off as the award winning Canonbah Bridge wines are sold all over the world. In recent times he has also turned his wine making skills to CIDER.

Relocating to Bilpin in 2007, Shane dug a cellar under his house by hand (hillbilly madness) and started experimenting with making ciders. Soon the whole house was filled with casks of cider and the aroma of wild yeast fermentations.

"hillbetty" Tessa, originally from the UK, fell for hillbilly Shane which took her on a journey from London to Bilpin. Her perfect day is filling the house with friends and family, often "metro-billies" up for the weekend, log fires and long lunches.
