LOBO CIDER

Our ciders are cloudy, unfiltered, undiluted and 100% authentic. Crafted in the Adelaide Hills by a 5th generation apple grower teamed with a Somerset Cider Maker – real apples, real taste for real people.

Lobo is the product of Michael Stafford and Warwick Billings, Michael’s family has been growing apples for generations and Warwick, the cider maker behind this exquisite range, is originally from Somerset, the cider capital of the UK. He has been involved in making cider since he was 8 and once made a cider that was regarded as the finest in England at the time.

“We don’t filter out the apple. This cider is made from crushed apples that are allowed to settle briefly and then begin to ferment. After a period we add some cultured yeast and then continue the long cool fermentation. At the right moment the fermentation is arrested capturing the full length and depth of flavour that characterises LOBO and the cloudy wholesome cider is then put into bottles. A natural apple and yeast sediment is present in the bottle.”

Lobo means wolf in Spanish and Portuguese and is also a rare variety of apple – this is the reason behind the quirky wolf illustrations on all our labels. Each label has been designed by a different artist and the wolf embodies the characteristics of the drink itself.

Each Lobo product is a true masterpiece and brings joy to the senses! If you are looking for a gift – look no further, there is something for everyone.

LOBO SPIRITS

LOBO make spirits now.

All cider makers secretly or not so secretly really want to make Apple Brandy.

Apple Brandy is most well known as Calvados – the French name for the region that well known examples

come from in Normandy, Northern France.

We make some Lobodos, our Australian interpretation of this delicious drink.

It takes a while, best matured in oak barrels for at least 3 years.

The result is a complex full flavoured apple brandy (although we prefer the name lobodos),

with rich nutty and caramel notes supporting the apple base line.

So while we were waiting we started occasional releases of a clear apple spirit –

LOBO Apfel, a simpler younger eau de vie,

made in a more central European dry Schnapps style.

And then we decided to make a Gin.

Part of our gin comes from the orchard, we use the aromatic yellow skin of Quinces that Michael grows, and after a period of maceration we distill these with the other more traditional botanicals, headlined by Juniper, and the result is delicious, and slightly different, in a delightful way.

We called our Gin – LOBO Djinn – djinn being the origin of the word genie, meaning something along the lines of an animal spirit.

Sort of a pun on a spirit in a bottle, if you look through the star on the front of the label, the spirit lives inside.
