Stonewell Cider Tawny 500ml

Price: €16.99

A truly specialist cider, Tawny is a rich, opulent and viscous cider, dark in colour and possessing complex bittersweet flavours. Tawny can be consumed as a slightly chilled aperitif or it also performs excellently as an accompaniment to cheese or desserts.

We create this cider by chaptalising the Michelin and Dabinett apple juice whilst it ferments. Raising the alcohol to 15%, we arrest the fermentation. This leaves residual sugars which encourage the development of highly complex favours during its minimum 12 month aging process. When we consider the cider has reached maturity we pass it through dry hops. This final step before bottling adds additional flavour and counter balances the residual sugars remaining within the cider: which all goes to create an array of delightful aromas on the nose. A still cider to be enjoyed at leisure and in moderation. The Tawny is produced in very small quantities, in the order of 3,000 litres a year. It is bottled by hand by our team in Cork and sealed using food grade beeswax and an individual label identifying the bottle number and signature of the cider maker.

The Story of the Producer

Stonewell Cider

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.
