Ripe for the picking: Rising demand for boutique and premium ciders has driven revenue growth

The Cider Production industry has flourished over the past five years, with cider growing significantly in popularity. Cider's image has been reinvented over the past decade to appeal to a new generation of consumers craving an alternative alcoholic beverage. In Australia, per capita alcohol consumption has declined over the past five years, including large declines in almost every product segment. However, cider has bucked this trend with strong increases in per capita consumption over the period. Australia's warm climate has provided an ideal environment for cider consumption, as many consumers perceive cider as light and refreshing. This trend has contributed to cider's growing more.
