Have you ever wondered where the apples that go into your cider come from? Probably not. But you definitely should start taking notice.
Batlow Cider is cider with a difference. A joint collaboration between the Batlow Fruit Co-operative and a pair of Sydney based brothers, it is founded on the idea of supporting local growers. That means taking local apples from family-owned orchards. It means supporting the local producers who just twelve months ago were devastated by the bushfires which ripped through their town.
Batlow Blended is Batlow Cider's newest creation. A series of fruit and spice driven hard apple ciders with three flavours to try. Tuti Fruiti, which is a combination of apple and tropical fruits; Ranga Tang Tang, a combination of apple and fresh ginger; and Big Red, inspired by homemade apple pie - think apple and cinnamon (yum!). Having recently hit Australian shelves, Batlow Blended is fresh and vibrant. Perfect for those who are sick of beer, those who need some vibrancy in their lives post 2020 or those who aren't ready to let go of summer just yet. Each can is also gluten free and vegan friendly so everyone can enjoy.
To celebrate the launch of Batlow Blended in BWS and Dan Murphy's stores across Australia we want to give one lucky RUSSH reader a case of each flavour to try for themselves. To enter simply tell us in 25 words or less why you should win. Competition closes April 8. Terms and conditions apply.

Ranga Tang Tang
'Ranga Tang Tan' Cider takes red apple varieties and blends with fresh, zesty, real ginger. Not too sweet up-front and a clean, mild gingery spice on the finish. No nasties, just darn good stuff!
Inspired by home-made fresh apple pie. This cider takes locally grown Batlow red apple varieties blended with warm cinnamon spice. Not too sweet up-front and a medium to dry finish. Just tasty, spicy deliciousness!
'Tuti Fruiti' Cider is like a tropicool holiday for your taste buds. They take locally grown Batlow apples, blended with pineapple, mango and raspberry. Sweet up-front and a slightly dry finish, packing plenty of tropical fruit punch.
