Magner's Irish Cider ( Ireland )

The production of cider is a simple, traditional process, based on natural ingredients. A lot of time, care and labour are put into the making of cider, from the time the apples are harvested, to achieving the end product. Similar in ways to the wine production process, the following is a step-by-step guide to the making of cider.

Commercial cider production was started in Clonmel, County Tipperary in 1935, by local man William Magner.[1] Magner bought the orchard from a Mr Phelan from Clonmel. Magner quickly established a successful business, and in 1937 he joined forces with the English cider-makers H. P. Bulmer and Company.[2] Dowds Lane in Clonmel was the location of this burgeoning enterprise.
