Cider from the Republic of Ireland (County Cork)
Killahora Orchards is an award-winning artisan producer on a mission to create the finest drinks from rare apples and pears from their own 200-year-old orchards on the Atlantic Coast of Ireland’s Cork County.
Founded by two cousins, Barry Walsh and David Watson, it remains a family business making ciders, perry, rare apple ice wine and pommeau from over 140 varieties of apple and more than 40 pear varieties in these ancient orchards to create some truly unique blends of juice.
Killahora products are all hand made and they’re allowed to take their time, maturing for up to a year to gain the most complexity of flavour.
Killahora Rare Apple Ice Wine won the Best Irish Drink Award 2019 at the prestigious Irish Food Writers Guild Awards and both this drink and their Pom’O aperitif won Gold Stars at the Great Taste Awards 2019.
