Franklin Cider Company Tasmania dominated the cider/perry classes, winning both Champion Perry and Best in Show – Cider/Perry for their Frank’s Summer Pear Cider at the Royal Agricultural Society of NSW Beer and Cider Show – announced last Friday night.

Celebrating its 10 year anniversary, this national competition saw a team of 26 judges and officials adjudicate their way through almost 200 of Australia’s finest beers and ciders.

Franks Cider are thrilled with this accolade “Not only is it great for Tasmania to be crowned yet again for quality we are so pleased that our unique production approach and authentic taste is performing well. Our pear cider has always been very popular and no doubt will continue to be “comments Naomie Clark.

Owned by the Clark family since 1836, Clark-Port represents the sixth generation to occupy Woodside, the 150 acre apple farm in the heart of Australia’s Huon Valley apple-growing region.  Its established orchard, renowned for producing high quality fruit, contains fruit trees dating back over 100 years, first planted by Clark-Port’s great grandfather.

“Unlike a number of cider products, Frank’s does not include fruit concentrates in the production process. The results are cider products with a very distinctive natural fruit flavour, instantly delivering a just picked taste experience for both the apple and pear products. This approach is obviously working well for us. We are pleased that our apple cider was awarded a bronze medal too” adds Naomie Clark.

The Franklin Cider Co. is a collaboration between Naomie Clark-Port, Tony Port and highly regarded Wine Making Tasmania.
