Morningcidery in Auckland's Morningside is New Zealand's first dedicated cider bar. Born from a combined love of hospitality and its neighbourhood namesake, Morningcidery opened its doors in November 2018. With the cider bar located within close proximity to the cellar doors of craft beer legends Garage project and Urbanaut, the Morningside precinct is a destination well worth visiting.
Morningcider has recently increased production to cover national distribution. Their cider is the real deal; no fruit concentrate used here, just 100% locally sourced apples. Forget the dicey apples cooked up in some mate's shed; neither is it the horribly sweet stuff. Cider made properly, as this has been, is a refreshing delight.
With a sustained focus on local, Morningcider are developing an urban gardening initiative to adopt out 200 cider apple trees throughout Morningside. The goal is to use these apples to make a brew with the heart and soul of the Morningside neighbourhood. Here’s to cider that will rock you to the core.
