On occasion of the recent St. Patrick’s Day, we decided to start a journey on the Emerald Island and its Celtic history, full of legends and folk traditions that bond its people to their land. Ireland is synonymous of Beer and Whiskey, but it’s less know for its cider tradition. Cider is an alcoholic beverage obtained from the fermentation of a great variety of apples.
We want to introduce you our new discover: Craigies Cider is an Irish craft cider made in County Carlow. 7 varieties, 6 growers, 5 counties: 100% Irish. From seed to tree and from soil to season our aim is to express the unique characteristics of Ireland’s magnificent apple orchards. No added water, no added sugar, just pure apple juice, passionately crafted into fine, complex ciders.We make our ciders using the juice of 100% pressed, Irish-grown apples and never from concentrate. Our ciders are vintage – we make them once a year – vegan, naturally gluten free, and made from apples grown in some of the best orchards in the world.
We want to introduce you to this drink which used to be part of the ordinary life of Celtic people . After an accurated research, we found a cider that was the right one for us, because of its traceability to the raw material and its acidity due to the total absence of added sugar. Then we mixed with one of the most famous whiskeys on the Irish tradition: Jameson Irish Whiskey. Finally, in order to balance the whole mix, we had made a special syrup based on honey and fresh ginger juice.
This is how we raise our glasses for all the fathers in the world. Cheers!
Jameson is one of the most well-kown Irish whiskey on the world. Its made by a mix of malted and unmalted barley. A hard coal is used for its triple distillation, then is put into oak barrels where it starts an ageing process for the next 4 years, in order to protect its smooth taste lacking of smoke flavours. Here’s the last curiosity about Jameson: Did you know that its family motto is written in the tag? SINE METU -Without fear!
