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. We 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.

the story of the producer

Stonewell Cider

Daniel and Geraldine Emerson of Stonewell, use pure apple juice from orchards in Waterford, Kilkenny and Tipperary (Con Traas's Apple Farm, one of our other food heroes!), All they add is a sprinkling of natural champagne yeast and a lot of passion to try and make the best real craft cider possible. Geraldine hails from the Loire region of Northern France, where her family has been making wine for centuries. Stonewell’s first cider blends were created with an old French press and apple mill, given to Daniel by Geraldine’s father some years ago. Five varieties of apples are used to make these carefully created blends, including cider apples which have the required tannins to give depth of flavour. Operations have progressed now more modern press is used, but its workings are similar to the original and the company’s produces three artisan ciders. The Emerson’s believe that in a world where people are more concerned about what they are consuming and how it’s made, a good craft cider should have its place.
