The Hogan's history
A whistlestop tour of just a few key dates spanning the last 30 years and a few thoughts on what the future may hold...
This is John Stewart, a neighbour to the Hogan's and the man who first introduced Allen to the art of cider making.
Spent too long drinking John's damson wine....
John finally caught up with the times and installed electricity, so he and Allen bought a scratter which was used to chop up the apples.
The year Allen launched Hogan's Cider commercially for the first time, officially making the leap from amateur to professional with ease; proudly exhibiting at every local event he could get to that summer!
Our first proud appearance at the Royal Show in Stoneleigh with our instantly forgettable Irish branding!
Our bottles had a little makeover and Hogan’s went international.
