Tempted Cider Company
Davy and Janet Uprichard may live in Antrim, but their ciders and juice have Orchard County roots. They get their apples from some of the best Armagh growers. This family business has been producing apple juice and cider at their purpose-built plant since 2009.
Davy is passionate about his product. He says in Somerset and Normandy there are nearly as many recipes for cider as there are apple orchards. He reckoned it was time to develop his own unique cider, here in Lisburn. He’s developed more than one as it happens.
Tempted Ciders are made by fermenting pure apple juice made from Armagh Bramley and dessert apples, plus Tipperary cider apples. Then they are sweetened with more pure apple juice, so these craft ciders are 100% apple. There are 5 ciders in the range, Tempted Dry, Medium Dry, Sweet, Tempted Elderflower and Tempted Strawberry Cider. This Strawberry Cider is a blend …… Tempted Strawberry Cider is a blend of cider, apple juice and strawberry wine, which Davy makes himself, making him one of a very few registered wine makers on the Island of Ireland.
All ciders are available in 500ml bottles, and 20litre bag in box are made to order. Loving the Garden of Eden-esque packaging designed by their daughter and her husband. This family business makes the most of everyone’s talents
