Somersby apple cider, which is sold in more than 50 countries, is now also available in China. Developed and produced by the Carlsberg Group since 2008, Somersby cider is a refreshing, easy-to-drink alcoholic beverage with sparkling bubbles and distinctive flavors. It is aimed at the adult market.
Apple cider is derived through the fermentation of the juice of apples, without the addition of distilled alcohol. Sugar may be added both prior to and after fermentation.
The cider is being sold at Walmart and Trust-Mart outlets in Guangzhou.
