Shelf life: 24 months

Packaging: Glass

Product manager: Sasha Goldsmith

Brand website: www.endlesscider.com.au

What the company says
After a trip to the UK, we spotted a gap in the market for a real cider for those who don’t like cider, and obviously for those who already do. We are not beer drinkers, so would never go down the beery path. We are from the wine industry, and that’s the talent we wanted to draw from. We love Champagne, so we developed Endless Cider with a decorated Sparkling Maker, using traditional artisan techniques with only real crushed fruit from Victoria’s Gippsland region supporting local growers. There are no nasties in Endless, and that’s the way we like it. We say it's cider with a heart and cider made with love. (Vegan friendly and gluten free).

Trumpeters Alcoholic Ice Tea

Shelf life: 12 months

Packaging: Designed by Street Ink and packaged by Asahi Premium Beverages. Available in singles, four packs and 24 bottle cartons

Product manager: Hayden Newton

Website: www.trumpetersicetea.com

What the company says
Trumpeters represent a celebration of the simple things in life such as sharing an ice-cold beverage with a friend or enjoying a tipple whilst watching a set from your favourite band.

The recipe is a twist on an original New Orleans recipe and draws upon influence from 1920’s New Orleans when alcoholic ice tea was drunk illegally across speakeasies during prohibition. The original New Orleans recipe has now been refined and Trumpeters has urged the public to ‘taste rare perfection’ found within an ice-cold bottle of the alcoholic ice tea.

Trumpeters has been created by Hayden Newton, from Victoria, who saw a gap in the market to deliver an authentic and innovative product. Hayden’s vision came after a tasting session with a close friend who owns a tea importation business and from that moment he set upon creating one of Victoria’s first alcoholic ice teas.  

Hayden believes that the new product will target a market ready for a change from cider and beer. Hayden said “What we have created at Trumpeters is a taste that really is unique and different to any other ice teas on the market. We are passionate in using only the most premium tea leaves to guarantee such a distinctive taste and that is why we pick seasonally from organic high grown plantations in Sri Lanka.”

The ice tea is extracted by use of a unique cold infusion method to ensure the most desired flavour is extracted. Pure super premium vodka is then added and gentle carbonation brings the refreshing nature of the iced tea – perfect for the summer season.

“It’s a great drink for summer BBQ’s but can also be sold in the on-trade using a pitchers and giving Trumpeters a cocktail feel with ice and citrus fruits.”

But if you bake them in cookies, or sponges you get a beautiful marbling of colours and with Sixlets, soft gooey chocolate, yum!

With shimmering shades of yellow, powder blue, baby pink, lavender, bright pink, orange, white and even gold and silver. The Opaque range is currently available in black, red, royal blue and green and with seasonal collection injections still to come. So get creative, the possibilities are endless, and the only limitations are your imagination.

Sixlets are unlike anything else in the confectionery market. They are a perfect indulgence and there is an endless list of sweet applications for these yummy lollies. Sixlets look stunning in apothecary jars for a delightful candy buffet or dessert bar, or as coloured coded favours, perfectly matched to the theme of your event. Use for artistic cake decorating, cute cupcakes, jelly, ice cream topping’s and a great dessert garnish with a difference.

Mix orange, black and white for Halloween, green, red and white for Christmas. Bright and baby pink, if ‘it’s a girl’ and royal and powder blue for a boy. Red, black and white makes for a cool pirate theme or, pick your team colours for footie parties or the grand final after-party, or even use them all for all the colours of the rainbow.

Coopers Artisan Reserve Pilsner

Product name: Coopers Artisan Reserve Pilsner

Product manufacturer: Coopers Brewery

Ingredients: Malt, tuborg strain of lager yeast, water and barley, with Hallertau Tradition and Hallertau Hersbrucker hop varieties (plus two others).

Shelf life: Approximately nine months.

Packaging: Packaged by Coopers Brewery in individual bottles, six pack baskets and 24 bottle cartons.

Product manager: Claire Filsell

Brand website: www.coopers.com.au

Contact email: coopers@coopers.com.au

What the company says
Artisan Reserve Pilsner is the latest craft beer release from world-renowned Coopers Brewery. This distinctive unpasteurised lager joins Celebration Ale in the Thomas Cooper’s Selection, which was introduced during the brewery’s 150th anniversary in 2012.  Coopers’ managing director, Dr Tim Cooper, said Artisan Reserve lived up to the true meaning of “artisan”.

“It reflects the skill of the brewers who have pushed the boundaries of the ancient art of beer-making to create an unpasteurised product with the freshest taste possible,” he said.

“It is an all-malt Pilsner crafted with Hallertau Tradition and Hallertau Hersbrucher hop varieties, both sourced from Bavaria. Two other hops varieties have also been used, but these will remain confidential to discourage imitations.

“The result is a bright, clear beer that is golden yellow in colour with an appetising soft and creamy head. First impressions are citrusy with a balanced malt character.”

Artisan Reserve Pilsner has an alcohol content of 5.5 percent, which ranks higher than most lagers of its type in the market, but best presents the flavour and aroma of the beer.

“Lagers normally undergo pasteurisation immediately after being bottled,” Cooper said.

“Coopers has a long tradition of producing bottle-conditioned ales that do not undergo pasteurisation, so developing a non-pasteurised Pilsner has been the result of applying our skills and knowledge in brewing and packaging.”
