Congal the Blind
7% ABV - Dry
100% Pressed - Goldings Hopped
Experience cider as you never have before, Congal Caech's sacrifice to the ancestors brings you a 2019 vintage blend of Yarlington Mill, Redstreak and a dash of fermented Jonagold, matured in oak.
This 7.0%, 300 bottle blend is infused with Goldings hop, imparting honey and spice that compliments the cider base, unlocking a clear and symmetrical flavour profile that is inaccesable to ciders produced commercially.
Each bottle is individually batch numbered and sealed with a 29mm crown cap coated in honey-infused wax, our homage to the story of Congal the Blind.
Congal's ultimate tribute to the Cidergods was that of his mortal life. Losing his eyesight from a bee sting, Congal demanded that the hive-keeper be killed. The keeper being no other than the Ard Ri, the high king of Ireland. An affront to the earthly heralds of the Cidergods, the humble bee, the Ard Ri took the Ui Neill to war against Congal, and he was slain. Congal's beverage of veneration is a fully pressed, heritage apple blend, matured in oak whiskey barrels. Goldings hops impart spiced honey notes for an exquisite finish.
