KINSALE-based Stonewell Irish Craft Cider has announced national distribution agreements with Fegan’s Foodservice and Cases.

The new distribution deals will help enable the start-up company to secure a crucial nationwide market presence.

Managing director, Daniel Emerson, says the announcement of distribution deals with Fegan’s Foodservice and Cases, is part of a wider company expansion strategy. “We’re delighted that we now have two significant new distribution agreements in place, meaning our national market presence is greatly enhanced.

“Since our launch in 2010, we’ve established a loyal customer base locally and achieved excellent word-of-mouth praise across Munster.

“In recent months we’ve put an increased emphasis on cementing a national presence,” he said.

Since launching in 2010, Stonewell Irish Craft Cider has quickly become a recognisable premium brand throughout County Cork and the wider Munster region.
