The 10-year deal with Cooper's Brewery will see tankers of bulk cider shipped to Adelaide from the Thatchers facility at Myrtle farm.

The cider will then be kegged by Coopers and distributed to hotels, clubs and bars around Australia.

At a national cider conference in Bristol, the industry heard calls for more firms to sell overseas.
