Austrian Cider Company
‘Fuschlsee’ is a refreshing dry apple cider made from Gala, Topaz and Pinova apples. Best enjoyed while making lasting memories. No added sugar. No concentrate. Just fresh apples.
After moving to Austria from England, I really missed the feeling of drinking cider while relaxing with my mates. It turns out, with the right ingredients, it was a lot easier to make the great cider I missed, than was to force my friends to emigrate. So, I started the Austrian Cider Company.
In my ciders I combine the best of my old home with my new one. That’s why I only use hand-picked (some by me personally) organic apples from my farmer Stephan’s beautiful orchard in the Mühlviertel.

For the Austrian Cider Company's second cider I wanted to do something really special, both in terms of what was in the bottle, and what the bottle represented. I couldn't think of any better way to do that than by taking traditional pear varieties and turning them on their head. Using heritage varieties to celebrate the beauty that diversity brings this world, and in doing so raising money for an incredible cause.
The poem you can read above was commissioned for the bottle label, and written by the amazing Marlene Anzengruber, an LGBTQ+ poet from Salzburg.
Marlene also chose Queer Base as the charity which will receive the money raised by this cider. They really do incredible work, and if you would like to find out more about them (their website is also available in English) then please go to their website: https://queerbase.at/.
