Taste and Tour Highbank Orchards & Distillery 

Highbank Orchards and Distillery


Highbank Orchards is home to the original and innovative and multi award winning Highbank Orchard Syrup. It is here that the delicious Highbank Apple juices are produced, including their award winning Ciders, Brandey and Vinegars.


During blossom time in May, harvest time in October and November, through to Christmas, Highbank offers an insight into a small scale Irish food producer adding value to product. Visit the Highbank Organic Farm Shop for samples of the organic orchard syrup, juices, organic ciders and apple spirits all produced directly from the orchards.
