Armagh Cider Company, Northern Ireland’s leading cider processor, has launched Orchard Twist, an innovative refreshing blend of fresh pressed apple juice, another fruit juice with sparkling spring water.
The Orchard Twist range of four flavours – sparkling apple, apple and blackcurrant, apple and rhubarb and apple with ginger – all with sparkling spring water – is a crafted, non-alcoholic beverage designed to be enjoyed by any member of the family.
The new products are being created under the new Armagh Juice Company, a new identity developed by Armagh Cider. They are available in 250ml glass bottles at RRP £1.80
Helen Troughton, managing director of the award-winning Apple Cider Company, which is based on the family’s apple farm near Portadown in county Armagh, says: “Served chilled, Orchard Twist makes for a healthy refreshing drink. Totally natural, it has nothing added, no added sugars, preservatives, artificial colours or flavours. It is 1 of your 5-a-day, low in calories, gluten free and suitable for vegetarians and vegans.
“We launched Orchard Twist at the recent Balmoral Show, Ireland’s biggest agri-food event, and were hugely encouraged by the very positive response of everyone who sampled the new juices. We will now be marketing the juices energetically in Northern Ireland and them further afield.
“We are confident the range will prove to be a very successful development for the company,” Mrs Troughton adds.
Armagh Cider Company has been at the leading edge of cider processing since 2006 and has won a string of national and international awards for its extensive range of drinks, including A J Apple Juice, and cider vinegar.
The company has created many of the most successful Northern Irish ciders, such as Carsons Crisp, Maddens Mellow and Doyles, which are listed by most major supermarkets, most recently Marks & Spencer, in Northern Ireland and are also sold in the Republic of Ireland and Britain.
