Cooney’s Irish Cider Wins International Acclaim At 2017 World Cider Awards in London
The team behind Cooney’s Irish Cider are celebrating international recognition for this new Irish brand after scooping two awards at the 2017 World Cider Awards in London.The World Cider Awards selects the very best of internationally recognised styles of drinks and is judged by a panel of international experts. Cooney’s Irish Cider won the “Best Irish Sparkling Cider” category and was also named “Best Style” winner.
Cooney’s Irish Cider was launched in June of this year by the family behind the Boyne Brewhouse range. The Cooney family orchards in Meath and Tipperary yield some of the finest quality cider apples in Ireland, giving Cooney’s Irish Cider a wonderful pale golden straw colour and an aroma of fresh bittersweet cider apples. On the palate, there are layers of complexity with subtle tart apple nuances. The mouthfeel is a medium bodied sensation with a balanced crisp fruity finish, making this wonderful cider seriously sessionable.
Peter Cooney of the Cooney family Orchards, said ”We are absolutely delighted with this recognition for our family Cider. We have spent a lot of time talking about developing a brand from our own family Orchards in Co. Meath and it’s amazing to have such international recognition so soon after release”.
Using their own spring water and honey bees, the Cooney family ensures that from blossom, to bottle, customers get the finest and most refreshing Irish Apple Cider.
