This newcomer onto the Australian scene hails from Sweden. As we head into Summer, where the days are pleasantly warm and daylight saving promotes outdoor dinner parties and BBQ's, cider is the perfect accompaniment to entertaining and enjoying the warmer weather.
I have decided that each Sunday leading into the Christmas period The Food Mentalist will feature Cider Sunday, where I will review a new cider to help make your choice easier this Summer.
Thankfully, the market has really taken off in Australia and more and more brands have started to flood the market.Thus far, Herrljunga +46 Apple Cider is my favourite. It is really thirst quenching and I love that it tastes very natural and crisp, as if the apples have just been pressed. I have tried quite a few ciders with flavours that taste artificial and somewhat stale. This one is different, and that's probably why it is one of Sweden's leading ciders.
I like my cider with lots of ice and super cold. As you can see the colour of this cider is almost clear. It tastes natural and whilst sweet, it isn't sickly. This cider is very easy to drink.
I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.
Herrljunga +46 Apple Cider.
RRP : $3.60 per bottle or $11.90 per pack of 4.
Available at good bottle shops.
Stay tuned for next week's installment of Cider Sunday.
