5 Ciders To Get You Through The Irish Heatwave


Savanna Dry is a South African Cider that was first produced in the Elgin Valley in 1996 and has since become the third biggest cider brand in the world. This clear, refreshing and dry tasting cider takes only two weeks to produce and during this period; the product is run through a micro-filtration process where it is triple filtered and double chilled. On a hot day there are not many drinks as refreshing as an ice-cold bottle of Savanna as you can tell from the image below.

Its makers say ÄLSKA is all about pure love and top quality and they have been spreading this pure love around the world since 2012. ÄLSKA, which means love in Swedish, is probably the best fruit cider I’ve ever tasted with the Strawberry & Lime and Passionfruit ciders being particular standouts. Its also the only product within its competitive set to be vegan, gluten-free and natural. All the more reason to love ÄLSKA.

Recently launched in Ireland, Jack Daniels Cider is not like any cider I’ve tasted before. The unmistakable flavour of Jack Daniel’s still runs to the core with this new drink, while blending crisp handpicked apples for a refreshing twist. Jack Daniels describe the drink as "crisp and lightly spiced with hints of caramel and vanilla", and, although it might not be for everyone, it's probably the most distinctive cider I’ve tasted and a must try for fans of the whisky.
