We love making cider, but we reckon there’s only one way to do it properly. That’s why we’re still taking inspiration from the historic methods we used when we started making cider back in 1935. That’s part of the Magners taste.
So in this way we use 17 varieties of apples, waiting until they drop before pressing and filtering them in the traditional way.
We take time to ferment the cider and even more time to let it mature, up to 2 years in fact, tasting it along the way.
Sure, there are faster ways of making cider, but then it wouldn’t be Magners.
C&C Group Plc is an Ireland- and UK-based manufacturer, marketer and distributor of alcoholic drinks. Hornsby’s is an American craft cider originally created by George Hornsby. Hornsby grew up in England and later settled in America. He enjoyed his adopted home but missed the crisp, apple taste of British ciders, so he started making his own cider and slowly introduced his invention to a curious American audience.
