A classic premium Irish cider that draws on the tannic bittersweet heritage of Dabinett & Michelin apple varieties grown in Laois and Waterford orchards. Crisp, puckering with a gentle astringency softened by the fresh eating apple juice used to back sweeten complete the cider; if your palate veers to the dry, this is the one for you.
The Michelin and Dabinett apple varieties are delivered into us in mid-October. Having been mechanically harvested they require a strong wash and vigilant sorting to ensure we secure a fresh juice of the best quality possible. Stonewell use a specific champagne yeast to ferment this juice with the aim of encouraging the best flavour characteristics to come to the fore during the fermentation process.
