Highbank Organic Single Estate Orchards are second-generation apple growers who produce their vintage ciders in small speciality batches with an emphasis on pairing ciders with different foods. All organic, with no added sulphites and gluten free, the cider apples are from Highbank’s own organic apples grown on the farm in Co Kilkenny where group bookings are taken for tasting and trailing the orchards. ‘From Apple to Bottle, our Orchards are our Vineyards.’
Highbank Proper Cider, Vintage 2013: This is a traditional, dry cider produced by Highbank Orchards from apples grown in their organic orchards. Matured on its wild yeasts, Highbank Proper Cider has no added sulphites, no added sugar and is Irish and organic with naturally high tannins. Available on draught in recyclable and easily transportable Key kegs.
A delicious, refreshing drink, Highbank Proper Cider should be served chilled over ice and pairs particularly well with a fish course.
