Mulled Cider from Daylesford Cider Co

We recently visited the crew at Daylesford Cider Co and spent a few good hours in their company. Our microphone and video camera didn’t intimidate them in the slightest! They gave us the proper run down on their whole cider range and shared their valuable knowledge on how to make cider and have fun in the process.

We ended the day in front of a warm fireplace with a few glasses of their delicious and fragrant mulled cider …so moorish! While on set, we thought we would take a shot of our very own serve of mulled cider in the hope of getting their recipe later. So here it is… enjoy!

We are working hard to make all Daylesford ciders accessible via our marketplace. Sign up for our e-mail updates and we will notify you as soon as the whole range is available online. Stay tuned for great videos, cider tasting and cider making tips – all coming soon!

What ciders are good for mulling?

The cider used in this recipe is sweet. If you have a sweet cider at hand you may not need additional sweeteners such as sugar or honey. If you use a drier variety then sweeten to taste.

If you are not sure about the sugar grading of cider, check out our post on Sugar in cider – the facts.

Mead (a traditional alcoholic drink made with fermented honey) is also great to mull and some varieties already include a natural blend of herbs and spices. We often go for the fantastic Lobo Cyser which has a robust body and a hint of spice.

Here is a list of great ciders & perries to mull:

Lobo Cyser – tasty mead, Lobethal SA

Frank’s Apple Cider – medium sweet, Franklin TAS

Faire Ferments Pear Cider – medium sweet, Goulburn Valley VIC

Lobo Perry – this is a perry on a different level…Lobethal SA

Snakes & Ladders Apple Cider – medium sweet, Ardmona VIC
