Armagh Cider Company

Armagh Cider Company was first established in 2005 on the family farm at Ballinteggart outside Portadown in Co Armagh- the orchard county of Ireland, where the Troughton family have been growing apples since 1898.

The first commercial craft cider company in Northern Ireland, Armagh Cider company has led the way since it’s inception.

By using their own apples and no artificial additives quality is guaranteed.

All processes from ‘blossom to bottle’ are carried out on their farm where tours are now available by appointment.

Their original, award winning Carson’s Crips and Maddens Mellow Cider are made using predominantly the Armagh Bramley Apple, PGI, and proudly displaying the PGI logo to confirm this.

In 2015, they introduced Doyle’s Cider, a new innovative blend, also available with flavours which has brought Irish craft to a new level.

Consistent quality has ensured a string of awards.
