A deliciously crisp, refreshing drink
Longueville House Cider's range has earned a reputation of quality - rapidly becoming a major hit in many restaurants and licensed premises throughout Ireland, U.K. Europe and The U.S.A. (O'Callaghan's Irish Cider available in the U.S).
Our crop of Dabinett and Michelin apples are harvested in late October, once picked the apples are crushed and pressed in the Cider Mill on the estate. The pressed juice is left naturally ferment over a period of two to six months, taking place as a result of the action of the wild yeasts, which are particular to the orchards and environs of Longueville. The newely fermented cider is left condition for a further 6 months resulting in a rich, amber coloured cider, full of character and flavour. There are no added sugars or sweetners (no chapalization) colouring's, additives, sulphites or preservatives used at any stage during the production and manufacturing process of the ciders. The entire process from growing the apples to the fermentation of the cider happens on the farm.
The cider is then bottled in 500ml glass and sold as Longueville House Cider (ABV 5.5%). A medium-dry cider with a fresh apple flavour, Longueville House Cider is a gorgeously refreshing, clean, crisp cider - and as far from commercially produced ‘cider’ as can be imagined (its how traditional cider used to be before it got all artificial and fake).
Our New cider, Longueville Mór (ABV 8%), Mór is the Gaelic/Irish word for big, our Longueville Mór Cider is fermented and aged for one year in our Apple Brandy casks. When we take our Longueville House Apple Brandy out of our French oak red wines casks after four to six years we refill the aged cask with freshly pressed apple juice form our crop of Dabinett and Michelin apples which after one year, results in significantly Mór taste, Mór depth, Mór well rounded, Mór balanced, Mór character, Mór flavour and significantly Mór enjoyment, a truly Mór delicious and Mór unique cider! Longueville Mór is a very drinkable but quietly deceiving cider because it doesn't taste as strong as an 8% cider should, you will however realise its strength about half way through the bottle! Slainte!
