When 2mt discovered the Griggs family at Lucaston Orchards in the Huon Valley were still growing the famous old English cider variety, Sturmer Pippin that was all the motivation they needed to produce a traditional, unfiltered, bottle fermented farmhouse cider made using only apples and yeast.
2mt are farmers brewing farmhouse ales & ciders in unique batches using farm grown ingredients from their own 600ha property in the Derwent Valley of Tasmania as well as ingredients sourced directly from farmers across the state. Barrel aging, spontaneous fermentations, experimentation and everything in between. Fruit in ale, sour cherries and more.
DID YOU KNOW?
‘Charlemont’ is the name of their 600 ha farm on the banks of the Derwent River in southern Tasmania. Just a short 40 minute drive from the heart of Hobart along the road towards the north west. With just 20 inches average annual rainfall, their farm provides some rural challenges. Fortunately the plentiful Derwent River provides a bountiful water supply.
