Apple Cider with Elderflower product reviews

Proud to promote NZ productsWe've crafted this reduced sugar, ready-to-drink spritzer to be enjoyed as a dry, thirst quenching refresher. Featuring squeezed fermented apple juice with lightly sparkling water and a touch of elderflower, it is ready to drink and share with a friend. Great with some ice and sometimes a dash of something stronger!

Refrigerate after opening.

Gluten free
Alcohol and preservative free
25% less sugar when compared with traditional full sugar carbonated drinks

I like the packaging of this product. It has an eye-catching label and is also a decent size (500ml) so there is enough for two people to share. Or, if you are drinking it on your own and want to save some for later, the screw cap ensures that the contents will stay fresh and fizzy.

We were having a spiced pork dinner so it seemed that cider would be a great match. Pork tends to be quite rich so having an astringent drink to accompany it tones it down so that it is more digestible. Not only that, this drink is delicious in its own right. When we first tasted it, we were both surprised to find that the sugar content had been reduced (when compared to other fizzy drinks) as it was quite sweet enough for us. It was also reassuring to find that there are no extra chemicals included - but this is what I would have expected from Barker's anyway, having sampled many of their products in the past.

The elderflower flavour was surprisingly intense: in fact, it was stronger than the apple. Elderflowers have an aroma reminiscent of muscatels, so it was an interesting combination. I would be intrigued to make a summer spritzer with this product and some elderberry wine (the alcoholic sort!) to see if that intensifies the flavour further. Elderflower wine mixes well with lemonade or plain soda, so I think it would probably be a useful variation on the plain version.

In this era of chilly bins and frozen bricks, it is easy to transport a picnic for several hours on a hot day and still enjoy a cold spread. This drink would be perfect as an accompaniment to picnic food, and would maintain its temperature if stored in the chilly bin with the rest of the meal. We finished our review bottle at home over dinner, but the next time we have one will be at the beach where we can enjoy it after a swim. Cans are a nuisance on such a trip as you have to finish the contents in one go; the contents of this bottle, however, can be enjoyed in instalments and replaced in the chilly bin between swigs.

As a summer drink, it would be hard to beat. We served it at room temperature but the day was quite cool anyway. On a warmer day I think it would be best chilled although I would hesitate to add ice cubes as they would dilute the flavour. Better to serve it neat straight from the fridge! On this occasion, we did intend to reserve a little bit for later so we could try it with a dash of vodka, but we did not quite make it - it was too nice so we drank the lot at one sitting! The vodka experiment will have to wait till next time.
