Producers & purveyors of small batch, Premium, non industrial, Artisan cider's & brandy.
William O'Callaghan and his father Michael before him have been fermenting craft cider and distilling Ireland's only Apple Brandy now for over 30 years. Using only heritage, heirloom cider apples namely Michelin (Normandy) and Dabinett (Somerset) grown in our substantial orchards in the beautiful Blackwater Valley.
Cider Apples differ hugely in taste from cooking, eating or dessert apples, cider apples are naturally higher in tannin's and lower in fructose which results in a much cleaner, crisp cider, lower in calories than commercially produced ciders. We are one of only four single origin orchards in Ireland, using only apples from our own sustainable orchard's in our cider's, incorporating a "blossom-to-bottle" ethos helping to ensure sustainability, authenticity, quality, traceability and compliance, on the grounds of our award winning country house in Mallow, County Cork.
