Rod & Julie Calder-Potts [Highbank Orchards] Ruth Calder-Potts & Clovis Ferguson [MuTonics]

When true food heritage and innovation come together, the result can be a thing of great beauty.
Mother and daughter duo, Julie and Ruth Calder-Potts are a great example and they will share the floor instore this Easter Saturday tasting their individual products and sharing their passion for great Irish food.


Our customers will be well acquainted with Julies tastings instore over the years as she samples her award-winning range of syrups, vinegars, cider and spirits made from apples grown on the family’s organic farm ‘Highbank Orchards’ near Cuffesgrange in south Kilkenny.  Now daughter Ruth has teamed up with Clovis Ferguson to create ‘Jamu’ which means “health drink” in Indonesian.  An infusion of certified organic fresh turmeric, ginger, tamarind, lemongrass, cinnamon, lemon juice, West Cork honey, black pepper and Atlantic sea salt. 


I can’t think of a nicer way to spend an afternoon than in the company of this mother and daughter pair. "The apple does not fall far from the tree" could not be more appropriate in this case. Pun intended!
Julie and Ruth’s tastings will be kicking off at 11 so make sure to pop in and leave loads of time to sample and chat!

See you instore

  • Highbank Medieval Cider 500ml

    Highbank Medieval Cider 500ml

    Highbank, the Irish Organic Cider Growers, in their never ending quest to offer their customers different products, have blended their Organic cider with Organic Honey to produce a sensational drink with subtle honey overtones and a long tannic finish. They have called this “Highbank Medieval Cider” in honor of their medieval home towns of Callan and Kilkenny and the fact that honey and cider were famously popular in medieval times in the fertile hinterland of County Kilkenny, drawing visitors from afar. Try and get a bottle to try if you can because Highbank produce their ciders in small batches which are very quickly snapped up.
