It's a hot afternoon and you're out at a party. It's crowded with people and even if the air-conditioned is on, you can't help but to break a sweat because of the heat and the crowd. Sounds familiar? Well, that just sums up pretty much everyone at any given afternoon party/BBQ. I experienced that last week and thankfully, I had a bottle of cold apple cider with me. It was none other than Strongbow Apple Cider.
Unlike other cider, this had a crisp, and refreshing taste. I love how there was a subtle sweet taste of it, could really taste the apple in it as it washes down my throat. The best part about Strongbow was, it did not give me any bloating sensation, even after a feel bottles of it. Instantly, I felt refresh inside and out. That day, the weather was just too hot and honestly, I think I would have fainted at the launch party if it wasn't for it.
Imagine all that goodness could be experienced by Strongbow Apple Cider, what about mixing it up with some extra dynamic flavors? Well, starting from December 2014, Strongbow's three new variants: Strongbow Apple Ciders Gold, Strongbow Apple Ciders Honey, and Strongbow Apple Ciders Elderflower will be available in Malaysia!
Curious to know more about the different variants?
Strongbow is an English Apple Cider that is currently one of the world's leading Apple Cider Brand. I can vouch that the newly launched variants of Strongbow apple cider ought to be one of the sweetest apple ciders I ever tried. Thus saying that, I bet with these new sweet variants made from the freshest apples, somehow I can foresee that a lot of girls or those with a sweet tooth, would be drinking these instead beers.
The event was held in some studio at Kota Damansara. It was really A HOT DAY. Thank goodness for the ciders and the cool finger food. That is actually a DIY Mason Jar Salad Station at the refreshment corner! Super cool right? Might just do that if I got friends over for a party.
Our emcee for the event
It was a very chilled evening as we had food, drinks, a dance performance and various live bands at the event. Guys, Elizabeth is even prettier in real life! Haha, kinda had my fan girl moment when I saw her singing, it was really good. If she has an album, I'll be the first one buying it :)
As I mentioned before, the three new variants are Strongbow Apple Ciders Gold, Strongbow Apple Ciders Honey, and Strongbow Apple Ciders Elderflower.
Strongbow Apple Ciders Gold
This drink has a bittersweet apple taste to it. Felt like this drink would be perfect on a Sunday evening as your out catching up with your friends. Don't know why but I feel like this would be a favourite with the mature crowd, could be because of the bittersweet aftertaste.
Strongbow Apple Ciders Honey
This drink caught me by surprise. It was one of the sweetest variant as compare to all three. Maybe that is why most girls love this variant the most at the event. This, on the other hand, would be perfect on a hot afternoon, especially pairing it with your BBQ meats.
Strongbow Apple Ciders Elderflower
This would be perfect for any given hot day! :D My favourite one out of the three! I just love how this instantly gave me a wake me up refreshing feel, it also have the sweet floral taste along with the fresh lime flavour.
Both the Strongbow Apple Ciders Gold and Strongbow Apple Ciders Honey contain 5% alcohol, while the Strongbow Apple Ciders Elderflower only contains 4.5% alcohol, perfect for those with low alcohol tollerance or want to just have some light drinks. All of the bottles are 330ml and beautifully designed with the logo.
Gorgeous set up at the event
“Tasting Strongbow is an experience by itself; it offers the perfect first drink to start the evening as a prelude to a lovely night or simply the perfect drink for a hot sunny afternoon. At any time, it sets the stage for you to be yourself as you indulge in real conversations with great company of friends and family,” said Bruce Dallas, Marketing Director of Guinness Anchor Berhad (GAB)

You won't believe it but Strongbow actually has a technique to how to get "The Perfect Serve" from your drink. Just make sure that your bottle is well-chilled at around 3° - 4° Celcius. Fill a Strongbow glass with 1/3 of ice cubes and pour your chilled bottle of Strongbow over ice. Serve on a Strongbow coaster and present the bottle alongside! Lol talk about cute marketing strategy. But jokes aside, go try them if you haven't. You won't look at Apple Ciders the same again :D
