Cool Down the Heat with Somersby Apple Cider

Over the last few days, the weather has been scorching hot and even the nights were not spared. I was sweating like a pig most of the time and the heat was quite unbearable. To cool off the heat, I had a bottle of Somersby Apple Cider and it was simply refreshing!

Most people I know have a misconception of cider and they would usually equate it with beer and wine. However, though all three beverages [cider, beer, and wine] undergo the same process of fermentation, they are in fact quite different by itself. Ciders are actually derived by the fermentation of the juices from apples and most ciders are carbonated. Sugar and apple juice may also be added both prior and post fermentation.

In recent years, cider has experienced a dramatic renaissance and it is a very popular alternative to beer and wine, and also a natural alternative to flavoured Ready-to-Drink products. While the origin of cider isn’t clear, it was said that when the Romans arrived in England in 55 BC, they found villagers in Kent drinking a delicious cider-like beverage made from apples. For centuries, traditional village life in the apple-growing regions of Britain would revolve around farmers making their own alcoholic beverage, which was a cloudy drink they affectionately called ‘scrumpy’. In fact, the drink was a popular sweet alternative to ale and it even replaced water as a refreshing drink because it was considered healthier than the drinking water at the time. The traditional ways of cider making are still with us today and cider is still appreciated by people from all walks of life who enjoy its naturally fruity and refreshing taste.

Somersby Apple Cider is currently available at all major supermarkets and currently, NTUC Fairprice is having a promotion whereby 4X 330-ML bottles of Somersby Apple Cider will cost $14.95 instead of the usual price of $16.80
