Armagh Cider Company Introduces Armagh Cider Zero at Opera and Orchards Event

Armagh Cider Company proudly unveiled its latest creation, Armagh Cider Zero, during the esteemed Opera and Orchards event held at the Market Place Theatre in Armagh. This innovative beverage offers a delightful blend of the company’s award-winning cider, sparkling Co Armagh spring water and freshly pressed apple juice, resulting in a bright, sparkling, non-alcoholic cider with a light, elegant, and crisp flavour profile.

The launch of Armagh Cider Zero was a highlight of the Opera and Orchards event, where Armagh Cider Company showcased its commitment to both cultural enrichment and culinary excellence by supporting Ulster Touring Opera. Collaborating with Dafydd Hall Williams, the evening was a remarkable celebration of music, culture, and tasteful delights, marking a memorable milestone for the company.

“We are thrilled with the positive feedback we’ve received from those who had the opportunity to enjoy a complimentary glass of Armagh Cider Zero,” said Helen Troughton, owner and director of Armagh Cider Company. “We produced Zero as a result of consumer demand, as the industry anticipates that non-alcoholic drinks will soar in popularity this year and beyond. Irish consumers are seeking more balance in their drinking and are availing themselves of the growing range of alternatives now available.”

Helen Troughton continued, “Armagh is well-known for its PGI status for the Bramley apple, and Armagh Cider Company proudly carries on this heritage and provenance. As the first commercial cider producer in Northern Ireland, making award winning cider since 2006, we are dedicated to crafting high-quality beverages that reflect the rich apple-growing tradition of our region. We had tested the market with a low alcohol cider a few years ago, but it seems we were ahead of our time!”

Esther Paul, Business Development Manager for Armagh Cider Company added, “Crafted ‘from blossom to bottle’ on our Ballinteggart home farm, Armagh Cider Zero promises a refined and satisfying experience, making it a perfect addition to our Troughtons Premium soft drink portfolio.”
