Magner’s Irish Cider is patiently vat matured to deliver a pure, crisp, refreshing flavour and natural character. A unique blend of seventeen varieties of apples harvested from their 250 acre orchard, Magners is always made with real apple juice and not from concentrate. The apples chosen for cider production are unique and quite different to dessert or culinary apples. Dessert apples give sweetness and culinary apples acid, but cider also requires the bitterness of tannins to balance the flavour and help preserve it.A total of 17 varieties of apple are grown in the Magners Orchards in Clonmel and are used to make the famous Magners brand. They are Michellin, Dabinett, Yarlington Mill, Bulmer's Norman, Tremlett's Bitter, Breakwell Seedling, Taylor's, Harry Master's Jersey, Medaille d'Or, Reine des Pommes, Ashton Bitter, Brambley's, Grenadier, Brown Thorn, Brown Snout, Vilberies and improved Dove.The time honoured tradition of making apple cider the old fashioned way is a very simple and natural process. It is part of Magners authentic heritage and it is what makes their cider stand out from its competition.
