Bilpin Pear Cider is made by using only freshly crushed Packham Pears – no added sugar or concentrates are used in the process. The result is a Pear Cider characterised by the natural fruit used in the production process – ripened and freshly crushed Packham pears. Bilpin Pear Cider is refreshing and sprightly with a clean natural finish, fresh pear bouquet and soft blush appearance.

DID YOU KNOW?
Bilpin was discovered in 1823 by nineteen year old Archibald Bell as a secondary pass through the Blue Mountains. The area’s fertile soil, mountain elevation and agreeable climate very quickly attracted settlers. These geographical, metrological and agricultural factors all combine to create the perfect fruit-growing environment. Bilpin was soon established as the premium fruit orchard of Australia.
