The brand brings with it a new type of energy, not to mention generations’ worth of knowledge and expertise in real orchard apple harvesting, pressing and cider making. All of this is amplified with a refreshing product design and an array of delicious, natural variants. With the timely arrival of Strongbow, the brand also wants to encourage South African consumers to mix nature back into their urban surroundings.

Strongbow is set to lift the existing cider category with an offering of more variety and choice for the South African consumer. This includes a new taste profile and fantastic aromas like Gold Apple, Original Dry and Red Berries. From the orchard to the glass, the Gold Apple taste is sweet and golden with a crisp kick, a hint of green apple and a long, bittersweet finish. The Red Berries taste of hard cider with Strawberry and Elderberry flavours, a hint of lemon notes, and an apple finish. The Original Dry taste profile delivers a crisp, uplifting and bittersweet finish.

    Hi there, is it not better to say that Strongbow is making a comeback rather launching? It was in the market before. This was my mom’s favourite cider back in the 90’s. Anywho, will it be in all stores or just a selected few? I really want you purchase one for my mom. Thanks in advance for the feedback.
