Australian Cider Day 2023 Poster

A national celebration of cider made from Australian grown apples and pears will be held across the country this Saturday 11 March 2023.

Australian Cider Day is an annual event that draws attention to Cider Australia’s 100% Australian Grown trust mark – an industry-led and owned initiative launched in 2018 to boost understanding about product origin.

Cider producers mark this annual day by organising cider events, tastings and other fun activities to educate drinkers about quality Australian cider.

Cider Australia President Warwick Billings said the trust mark and Australian Cider Day highlight what makes Australian craft ciders unique – the fact they are made with Australian grown fruit rather than imported juice concentrate which goes into an estimated 90% of the ciders sold in Australia.

‘By choosing ciders that display the trust mark, drinkers are supporting Australian fruit growers and their communities and boosting Australian jobs in the craft
cider industry’, Warwick said.

More than 80 Australian cider producers are now registered to use the trust mark.

Cider Australia features Australian Cider Day events on its website and promotes use of the social media hashtag #drinkaustraliancider so everyone can see what the Australian cider community is up to.
