NEW MAGNERS WITH IRISH WHISKY
APPLES WITH MORE BITE!

Back in 1935, when Bill Magner was creating his special cider recipes, we believe that he also enjoyed the odd tipple of whiskey. He had a head for business and a nose for quality and discovered that the tangy taste of apples and smooth Irish Whiskey, were a marriage made in heaven. In 2015, to celebrate William Magner’s 80th anniversary, we’ve re-created his infamous concoction: Magners Irish Cider with a drop of smooth Irish whiskey.

DISCOVER THE MAGNERS STORY

IT STARTS, AS SO MANY THINGS DO, WITH LIGHT

In this case, bright, Irish sunlight and the gentle Tipperary rain that makes this part of the world so perfect for growing the 17 varieties of sweet, sharp and bitter apples harvested to give Magners Original Irish Cider its unique taste.

The apples are never picked, instead the branches are shaken and will only drop to the Irish earth when fully ripened.

Traditionally, we used a system called a cheese press, out of which the cloudy juice poured like nectar. Nowadays our system is a bit more hi-tech but the same principles apply and our liquid is as juicy as ever.

The apple juice is then transferred to vats and fermented here for up to 4 weeks, which replicates the same fermentation environment as our original oak vats, even down to the same yeast strains developing our rich and unique Magners Original flavour.

After fermentation, unlike many other ciders, our Magners is repeatedly filtered to achieve a unique purity like no others.

The final stage is to then mature the cider in the dark for up to two years. WHY IN THE DARK? BECAUSE IT JUST TASTES BETTER!

After maturing, Magners Original is bottled and transported to over 50 countries around the world that drink it in just one way……OVER ICE, WITH FRIENDS.
