Our on-going range of exclusive, artisan batches of cider, Cheeky Little Batch blends give us the opportunity to be experimental and creative, using different yeasts and blends, and bring these smaller batches to tap points quickly.  These blends brings together the best of old and new worlds in cider - sourcing small parcels of traditional heritage varieties and cider apples, and blending them with the culinary apples usually used in Australian cider, creating a marriage of traditional earthy and complex characteristics, with a crisp clean contemporary taste.

 

Cheeky Little Batch can be found at iconic Melbourne venues, including Young and Jacksons, Beer DeLuxe, Brunswick Street Cider House, Mrs. Parmas and The Lucky Coq.
