Tuff Cider ® is the brain-child of Chris Mallia and Ian Schranz. Having various years experience in the beverage sector, they identified a lack of genuinely produced ciders on the market in Malta.

Chris would often treat people to his home-brewed hard-cider and Ian insisted it was too amazing to remain a secret, so they scaled up production to launch their first official batch in 2019.

The name Tuff® derives from the Maltese word for apple; Tuffieħa.
