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.
