Sweet As!

Traditional cider, crafted on the Kapiti Coast from fresh locally grown fruit.

A beverage so good you can live apple-ly ever after…

Sorry… that was almost as dry as our cider. We make it using traditional methods, with nothing added but locally grown cider apples and pears.

Our simple philosophy of working with the sun, soil, wind and water defines everything about Elemental Cider, from the way the fruit is grown to the way the cider is made and bottled!

Award Winning Cider…

I’m partial to a good cider, and had been disappointed with the sweet sugary commercial and boutique varieties on offer until I discovered Elemental Cider at a local farmer’s market.

Not only is this cider full of fruit (it is 100% apple or pear), it is also full of flavour and has a crisp dryness that is remarkably refreshing. I’ve tried all four varieties and find they serve for different occasions. While Dry As is my preferred, Orchard Fall is great if you feel the need for a little more sweetness, Pear Drop is super refreshing after a hot day, and Totally Oaked has that extra smoothness for later in the day.

Really though you could drink any of them at anytime, the taste is that good. I love that the company is a locally owned operation, using quality products from the district. I buy a mixed box direct from the Cidery, and it’s delivered to my door, so I always have some on hand. Now that’s service!

Couldn’t recommend this product and the service of the team at Elemental Cider more highly.
