The Zeffer Story

If you like your cider low on sugar and made from real fruit then look north to the Zeffer cidery.  Founded in Matakana in 2009 our team are passionate about using New Zealand's abundance of top quality fruit to create premium hand-crafted cider.

Cider has changed our lives – its more to us than just an excellent drop, it's our passion and our lifestyle.  We love what we do and we are thrilled to share it with you.

The Cidery

Sam, Hannah, Josh & Greg


Years of winemaking expertise and a finely tuned palate give Sam (our cidermaker) knowledge, craft and attention to detail.


Hannah is Zeffer’s chief apple-hunter, scouring the country to find New Zealand’s best fruit. She’s in charge of keeping the Zeffer cellar full of stock ready to hit the shelves.


You’ll find Josh with his phone glued to his ear organising the next Zeffer event. He's responsible for bringing Zeffer to your local so if you can’t find it in-store, give him a call.


Not your typical bean counter, more like the apple counter. Greg adds the numbers to ensure you get your Zeffer cider at the best possible price.
