On your next trip to the Blueys, be sure to call into Bilpin. The rural town is well-known among foodies for being home to a farm belonging to Sean Moran (of Sean's Panaroma on Bondi Beach), as well as for its delicious apples. For the latter, stop in at Hillbilly Cider, run by third-generation farmer Shane McLaughlin and his partner Tessa. Founded back in 2007, the company uses local fruit — and local fruit only — to produce a range of all-natural ciders, both alcoholic and non-alcoholic.

Head to the Cider Shed, prop yourself up at the bar or grab a chair overlooking the orchard and run through a tasting, beginning with the too-easy-to-drink apple cider, which won bronze at the 2015 International Cider Challenge, and finishing with Sweet Julie, the only cider on the planet made from the Julie apple, a variety discovered on the property. Hillbilly also serves up some woodfired pizzas, should you need to line the stomach. The shed is open for bookings and walk-ins.
