A bit about the specialist ingredient
Irish cider - Cider-making in Ireland is over 2000 years old and the monasteries had a big part to play in its production over the years. There are over 70 distinct Irish varieties of apple trees that have been identified across Ireland with colourful names like the Bloody Butcher and Greasy Pippin. This Irish cider has a subtle tang which provides beautiful sweetness and acidity in equal measure.
