Making great cider starts with selecting the finest apples and the watchful eye of one of the world’s best cider-making families…
The Cidery is situated in the Orchard County of Armagh and this too, is the source of dessert and Bramley apples used to make Tempted Cider. Armagh Bramleys have earned Protected Geographical Indication status by the EU for their unique, sharp, clean taste. The Uprichards also source special cider apple varieties from Co.Tipperary. Only the best quality Irish apples get the opportunity to be in a bottle of Tempted.
This medium cider has a generous proportion of bittersweet cider at its core. Blended with some dessert apple cider and Tempted’s own apple juice blend, a complete fulfilling cider ensues. Real depth of flavour and long smooth finish make this a cider not to be missed.
Nose: Green apple is surrounded by a clean spicy, mature cider aroma.
Palate:Initial fresh green apple with soft acidity develops into a robust but smooth bittersweet cider. Slightly smoky notes merge with rounded malty undertones to give a rewarding complex mouth-feel.
Finish: Hints of smoke, hay and malt combined with green apple acidity leave a smooth fulfilling long lasting traditional cider experience.
