From Blossom to Bottle and Orchard Picnic 

Discover the craft of cider-making from blossom to bottle. We’ll show you the orchards and the apples including the Armagh Bramley Apple PGI which is unique to Armagh.

We will discuss the whole process of cider making from blossom to bottle.

See all we do, why and how – and hear a little bit of home-spun history, too.

Finish your visit with a picnic in the orchard. Every mouthful of food is so fresh and delicious ... a real treat.



Come and learn about the history of Ballinteggart and how it has become the home of Armagh Cider. Then enjoy a picnic in our traditional orchards.
