Our cold-crush is the key addition to Melbourne’s longer, warmer days and every celebration on the calendar.
We go where you go
Head to Liquorland, Vintage Cellars, First Choice Liquor or your local indie for Louis Cider.
Want us to ship it straight from our Coldstream Orchard to your door? We can do that too.
The story of Louis begins way back in 1905, on the St Huberts orchard in Coldstream where our Napoleone orchard now sits, an unfortunate stick vs face incident caused worker Louis Cardinoux to lose his left eye. Our refreshing, hand-crafted cider is a tip of the hat to our friend in the field and a tasty reminder to always keep your eyes on the prize.
Good apples hand picked from our Napoleone Orchard in the Yarra, then straight up, cold-crushed. That’s about it.
No Added Sugar. No Concentrate. No Nonsense.
Crushed from a single pick of our 2021 harvest of Yarra Valley apples, steeped on skins for 24 hours, then plunged head-first to seasoned barrels to naturally ferment.
This brew is more savoury than its bottled stablemates, thanks to regular lees stirring, lending mouthfeel and complexity.
In a nutshell, the Louis Hard Cider delivers a thirst quenching, cool-climate fruit flavour, with the funk and texture that comes from 30 years of hard graft in the Yarra.
ROSE CIDER ON
Louis Pomme Rouge is an aperitivo style cider that's perfect for the heady summer days.
Hand-picked red apples off the Coldstream farm, straight up cold crushed, then left to mingle with Yarra Valley shiraz skins for a two week ferment in open top small pots.
Pressed off skins to cold settle with no sugar additions - this is a seasonal release you'd give your left eye for.
Vegan and gluten friendly.
