The world’s number one cider Strongbow has just released three interesting varieties, which are in addition to the regular Strongbow cider.
The party to launch the trio was awesome, and took place at a really cool spot in an industrial park in PJ. The snacks were great too.
GAB and Strongbow launched three new flavours for our market – Elderflower (ABV 4.5%), Honey (5%) and Gold (5%).
The Honey, tho having the aroma of honey was surprisingly not as sweet as expected, and still crisp, while the Elderflower is obviously floral on the nose, as well as flavour, but the infusion of lime balances it out. The Strongbow Gold i thought was tangy and crisp, with a more flavoursome, bittersweet finish.
The drinks were served over ice, probably to make it more refreshing and less sweet.
It was an interesting launch. There was live music as well as FOUR bars.
Strongbow has been making ciders a little longer than me and Baad Apples – 125 years, and is the world-leader. The new ciders will be available on and off-trade from today (Dec 1).
Drink your apples.
