Armagh Cider Company
Armagh Cider Company was 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 its inception.
By using their own apples and no artificial additives quality is guaranteed.
All processes ‘from blossom to bottle’ are carried out on their own farm where tours are now available by appointment.
Their original, award winning Carsons Crisp and Maddens Mellow ciders are made using predominantly the Armagh Bramley Apple, PGI, and proudly display the PGI logo to confirm this.
In 2015, they introduced Doyles Cider, a new innovative blend, also available with flavours which has brought Irish Craft Cider to a new level.In 2017, ACC added to their range of non-alcoholic drinks with the introduction of Orchard Twist.
A crafted natural non-alcoholic sparkling beverage, available in several flavours with no added sugars and is 1 of your 5-a-day.
Consistent quality has ensured a string of awards.
