Event:
A Very Cider Christmas in July
Anyone who enjoys a great drop of cider needs to get on up to Daylesford for the annual Christmas in July at Daylesford Cider to be held this year on Saturday 28th July.

Guests will have two options, a lunch session from 11 AM to 4 PM or the dinner session from 6 PM until 10.30 PM.

Cost is $57 per person for a 2-course traditional Christmas dinner comprised of roast turkey with all the trimmings followed by Christmas pudding and brandy custard.

A vegetarian/vegan or gluten-free alternative is available upon request at time of booking.

If you're staying in Daylesford or Hepburn Springs, there will be a shuttle bus service with pick-up and drop-off at the Daylesford Hotel and the Bluebean Cafe in Hepburn before and after both the lunchtime and dinner service. Cost of the shuttle is $5 per person each way.

This is a ticketed event only with limited numbers available so get in early and book to avoid disappointment.

Just 17 varieties of apple have been heritage listed for the manufacture of cider and Daylesford Cider produces a range of authentic full flavoured ciders using those 17 varieties organically grown right here on the property – something that makes Daylesford Cider unique in the Australian industry.

The product ranges from the traditional 'still' cider with its very dry palate to the carbonated and sweeter varieties.

What's that old saying, 'an apple a day keeps the doctor away'. Well, I reckon half a pint of cider must be equally as good because there is research that shows cider contains high levels of beneficial antioxidants, with half a pint being roughly equivalent to a glass of red wine in terms of the amount of antioxidants ingested.

Reason enough to make sure you get along to Christmas in July at Daylesford Cider.

Getting There …..

Daylesford Cider is just minutes from central Daylesford via the Daylesford – Trentham Road, Leitches Creek Road and Dairy Flat Road.

Take it easy on Leitches Creek Road as the turn-off to Dairy Flat Road is not well sign-posted.
