2012 - Our official launch was held at Emu Ridge Eucalyptus in November 2012

We have had a long association with Emu Ridge. Graham and Larry Turner met at an essential oil seminar in Adelaide in 1993. Graham helped Larry with the Emu Ridge Eucalyptus research program, looking at selection of Eucalypts, native to the property, for oil quality, yield and disease resistance. Through that work, we fell in love with Kangaroo Island and purchased a property near Emu Ridge where we started with our first orchard planting in 2004.

In 2011, we introduced our first cider, the medium dry Colony Cove Original and then in the following year, the medium sweet Colony Cove Draught Cider. The success of these led to our formal launch as a business. Now with over 30 varieties and more than 600 trees to blend from, our range now extends to four ciders and a sparkling apple juice.

We have won many awards and received significant recognition for our Cider-making ..... a provenance we are proud of.....but nothing can replace the pleasure of simply tasting an authentic, clean and all natural Kangaroo Island Cider for yourself......

So, come and try them whilst relaxing & enjoying the view, watching the world go by at Emu Ridge Eucalyptus!
