cider with a conscience

Zeden Cider Co. Founder Bevan Wait

In the footsteps of many Kiwis before him, Bevan Wait embarked on an OE in his twenties. Among many highlights was a trip to the English countryside in the county of Herefordshire. Here, cider is a way of life. Over many afternoons visiting quaint country cideries, a love of quality cider was born.

Upon returning to the land of the long white cloud, Bevan was struck by how incredibly lucky we are here in New Zealand - the beauty of our wild places and the uniqueness of our native creatures is second to none. He also realised just how fragile our little corner of the world is. He decided to do his bit to preserve our ecosystems and their distinctive biodiversity.
 
New Zealand needed good cider, and New Zealand’s native species needed a helping hand. What if the two could be combined?

And so Zeden Cider Co. was born
