Renowned Tasmanian cider maker produces its first RTD

Willie Smiths is one of a number of trailblazing cider producers in the Huon Valley, the southernmost part of Tasmania.

Over the past decade the fourth-generation business has made a national impact with a number of cider releases, including its regular lines, seasonal releases and single-apple varietals.

Willie Smiths also hosts the annual Huon Mid-Winter Fest, coming up next month, where anyone visiting should try to sample the family-owned company's first RTD, which goes by the name Dark River Stormy Seas.

The name is a tribute to the Huon River, which flows beside some of the company's organic apple orchards, and the wild seas off the Tasmanian coast.

The super-refreshing pre-mixed cocktail is blend of twice-distilled apple spirit, which has been spiced and blended with brewed ginger beer and lime zest. Best enjoyed well chilled, or over ice it packs a zingy kick. 

The new cocktail weighs in at 6.0%ABV and a case of 16 x 335ml cans costs $95 (or much less for cider club members).
