Magners has been made in Clonmel, County Tipperary, Ireland since 1935. Their Ciders are made with 17 varieties of apples, including apples sourced from their own 150 acres of orchards and from orchards all over Ireland. The apples make the trek to the new Magners Cidery that is just down the road from the old Magners Cidery and Vat House that has stood in the heart of Clonmel on Dowd’s Lane since the beginning. The process of grove to glass begins in early October with “The Crush” when the apples are gathered. Unlike most brands that remove the fruit from trees according to a production schedule, the makers of Magners wait until the apples themselves are ready. Harvesters then gently shake the branches and wait for the apples to fall, fully ripened to the ground. Magners uses 17 varieties of apples, waiting until they drop before pressing and filtering them in their original and traditional way. They take time to ferment the cider and even more time to let it mature. Up to 2 years in fact! Sure there are faster ways of making cider but then it wouldn't be Magners! It's worth the wait.
