Stonewell Tobairin Craft Cider 500ml

Price: €3.99

A crisp, light, almost Perry like cider which perfectly fits the bill for the designated driver or lunch time drink. Tobairín is evidence that just because there’s less alcohol (1.5% ABV) it doesn’t mean that the character or complexity of the drink has to suffer. Very light in colour, this sparkling drink possesses great apple flavour with naturally occurring fermentation esters reminiscent of lemon. This is a reflection of the fact that the cider is drawn entirely from eating apple varieties and in particular Jonagored.

We originally created this cider by undertaking a second pressing of the apple pommace, which delivered a juice with a lower sugar content. As a result when fermented it delivers an ABV of just above 2% ABV. When this base cider is blended with back sweetening fresh apple juice the alcohol by volume is naturally brought down to just 1.5%. Whilst hard work we believe the result is worthwhile and enables Stonewell lovers to enjoy a drink at the time of day they choose.

What’s in a name?

Well in the case of Tobairín we sought to reflect both the characteristics of the drink and its provenance. Tobar means “well” (as in wishing well) and “ín” means small or light, coming together as Tobairín.

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.
