The origins of Longueville House Cider lie in the Longueville House Apple Brandy, which was first developed by the late Michael O’Callaghan back in 2000. Michael planted 20 acres of Dabinett and Michelin cider apples at the north-west side of the property in orchards situated on the gentle slope of the Blackwater River Valley. The underlying rock is limestone and shale and the soil is loamy. In 2011 his son William took over from where his father left off, and has brought it to a new level as well as developing this fine craft cider.
