A move to an orchard in Bilpin in 2007 was Shane and Tessa McLaughlin’s inspiration for creating this local favourite Blue Mountains cider. Shane’s first batch of Hillbilly was fermented in the cellar he dug out by hand under the house.
Hillbilly Cider is the only cider in the world that uses the Julie™ apple. The first new commercial apple discovered in the Sydney/Blue Mountains area since the Granny Smith apple 100 years ago!
The Julie™ was a chance seedling discovered by Bill and Julie Shields at their orchard located next door to the Hillbilly Cider shed.
