Ten Sixty One

Bianca Paganoni, a fourth-generation apple grower, is the face of Moorooduc cider producer Ten Sixty One. After watching tonnes of apples rot before her eyes on the family’s Atlanta Orchards farm, Bianca decided to wage a war on waste – and Ten Sixty One was born.

Ten Sixty One takes the farm’s ‘reject’ apples – those that supermarkets turn away because they aren’t visually appealing, even though they’re still perfectly tasty – and cold-presses them to make the juice that’s then fermented to create crisp, sparkling cider.

All Ten Sixty One’s equipment uses either air compression or electricity derived wholly from the farm’s solar energy array, and the fully recyclable packaging is locally sourced. Ten Sixty One isn’t just another cider on the market; this is the product of a hardworking orchardist with a vision to make the community a better place.

You can buy Ten Sixty One cider in bottles or cans from the website, where you will also find Ten Sixty One clothing available to order. Local cider stockists can also be found on the website, and keep an eye on Ten Sixty One’s Facebook page for new stockists.
