Longueville House Cider
Longueville House Apple Brandy and Cider was first developed by the late Michael O’Callaghan back in 2000. A pioneering spirit he planted 20 acres of Dabinett and Michelin cider apples at the north-west side of the property. More recently his son William has taken over from where his father left off and had brought it to another level.
The apples are harvested in the autumn every year. Once picked the apples are crushed and pressed in an oak cider press machine located in the cider house on our farm.
The pressed juice is naturally fermented over time, resulting in a rich amber coloured cider. The cider is then filtered, carbonated and pasteurised. There are no colourings, additives or preservatives used at any stage during the production and manufacturing process of our cider and it is also gluten free.
It is then bottled in 500ml glass and sold as Longueville House Cider.
Longueville House Cider is sold at the hotel in cases of 15 x 500ml bottles and in independent off licences, restaurants, hotels and gastro pubs nationwide.
