Strongbow Malaysia Introduces 3 New Variants of Apple Ciders @ 31 Square

 

Last week I was invited to Strongbow new variants launch event at 31 Square. It was drizzling that day. Nevertheless, my friend and I managed to reach on time even though we patrolled a few round for car park. It is understandable very hard to find a car park especially on a weekday.



Let’s forget about the car park. What surprised me was that all the attendants were so pretty! Well, my friend was thrilled up that day; it was kind an eye washing/therapy session for him….LOL I teased him for not bringing a DSLR to come. (my friend is a professional photographer working freelance for local magazines)


 



The guys I knew in the event complaining the same thing to me: can see cannot touch/’eat’! Hahaha… (I just able to laugh over the joke) Hmmm….but at least the food served during the event can be eaten what?



Well, not forgetting the purpose of coming here…..to enjoy Strongbow….UK No 1 best selling cider! I believe some of you might not familiar with the brand, thus here is a simple introduction of Strongbow:

“In 1962, Bulmer began crafting Strongbow in Hereford, England. Astoundingly, the name Strongbow was inspired by Richard ‘Strongbow’ de Clare, the Earl of Pembroke, who was legendary for his skill with bow and arrow. Today, Strongbow is available in over 60 countries worldwide and is the best-selling cider in UK.” 




The clear, golden Strongbow Cider is made from a perfect blend of specially selected culinary apples. With its authentic English recipe, it guarantees a rush of instant refreshment in every sip. It is the perfect first drink to start the evening and an ideal refreshing beverage on a hot sunny afternoon, a testament to its reputation as UK’s No.1 Cider.



Strongbow, the premium apple cider alcoholic beverage brand, introduced 3 new variants, Strongbow Apple Ciders Gold, Strongbow Apple Ciders Honey and Strongbow Apple Cider Elderflower during the launch. Made from the freshest apples, 3 new variants deliver respective top notes to the ciders that are enjoyable for all. 

 

Strongbow Apple Ciders Gold offers a refined sweet and crisp apple bite that captures the light aftertaste of bittersweet apples, giving a very long finish.
  





 

Strongbow Apple Ciders Honey is a sweet and pleasant cider that delivers the saccharine aroma of honey, while maintaining the crisp taste of cider. And this new variant becomes my favourite among all!

 

Strongbow Apple Ciders Elderflower is a blend of elderflower and lime that hits the ‘bull eye’ by capturing the sweet floral aroma with hints of Muscat and fresh litchi fruits.


 


The drink is best served at ~3◦-4◦ Celcius. For maximum refreshment, one can fills a Strongbow glass with approximately 1/3 of ice cubes. Worry not, Strongbow Apple Ciders Gold and Strongbow Apple Ciders Honey contain 5% alcohol per volume (ABV), while Strongbow Apple Ciders Elderflower contains only 4.5% ABV. 



Each is designed with a beautifully embossed detailing on a 330 ml sleek pint bottle. Offering dynamism and freshness to the palate, the 3 new ciders will begin appearing at on- and off-trade premises starting next month.

Beautiful Place @ Gaharu Tea Valley Gopeng, Perak

I never know about Gaharu Tea Valley until I was brought here. The entrance is a beautifully landscaped fortress resembling the Great Wall of China. The 120 ha Gaharu plantation is set to become the next tourist destination with its 3m high wall surrounding the whole area. This attractive themed wall design known as "The great Wall of Gopeng" keeps the plantation safe from any possible intrusions especially from wild animals.

Gaharu is more commonly known as Agarwood but it is also known as Aloewood, Eaglewood, Oud or Jinko in different part of the world. The Gaharu wood has long played a significant role in Arabian and Chinese cultures. It is considered to be nature's most valuable wood not only because it is an essential oil but because of its healh benefits. So high was it regarded that this natural forest treasure is known as the 'Wood of Gods'.

The entrance is free but to wander around the expansive plantation, it is advised to pay for the van ticket which costs RM10 for adult and RM5 for children. The minivan guided tour will bring you to interest points such as the viewing stage, hugging park and lover park.

While waiting for our van to arrive, there is a retail shop selling all the gaharu products. These include gaharu tea, gaharu oil, gaharu cookies, gaharu soup mix, gaharu instant noodles, gaharu nougat, gaharu wood chip, gaharu perfume, gaharu handmade soup, gaharu accessories, gaharu seedling and etc.

These paintings are adorable and that's why how could one resists of not hugging the trees here? And I heard there is a belief that hugging the trunk of gaharu tree is believed to be auspicious!So if you are still single, why not trying your luck here? LOL
