Cronins Quality Cider 4.5% 50cl
Cronins Quality Cider
As a young man working in the family pub in Listowel, John Cronin remembers thinking there should be more than one cider on offer. He researched the market and discovered, that while it is a one horse race in Ireland, there is a vibrant cider market in England. John believed he knew what would go down well in Ireland.
The cider would :-
Be easy to drink, with a smooth, clean, crisp taste.
Have just the right amount of sparkle and acidity to be refreshing.
Made with natural ingredients.
Always taste the same and reach the customer in top quality condition.
With a clear vision of what he wanted, John set out on a quest. He was a young man in a hurry! But, like most quests it took way, way longer with numerous twists and turns, and seemingly dead ends. But, the dream was strong enough to keep him going.
Over 20 years ago he teamed up with English master cider maker Keith Knight to create his cider. They eventually collaborated with David Sheppy to help perfect the recipe. It was perfected using a blend of Somerset bittersweet, and dessert apple juice. The dream was now a reality.
With the recipe perfected John built a close knit team. We set out to find a suitable manufacturing partner. Initially it looked as if we would be making it in England. But, we were delighted to find our ideal partners in Donohoes of Enniscorthy.
Donohoes have a state of the art production facility with a rigorous quality control regime. The great thing is, they are a family business and care about Cronins Cider as much as we do.
Cronins Quality Cider launched in June 2015. The tremendously positive reaction, tells us that John’s vision of a cider the Irish people will love, is spot on.
