A review of Waitrose Low-Alcohol Cider

ABV: 1%
Calories per bottle: 160 (32 per 100ml)
Score: 4 out of 5

People have been recommending this one to us for months. So, we thought it was about time we got ourselves over to Waitrose to pick up a few.

This cider hails from Herefordshire, which is generally a good start for a cider. And it’s matured in oak vats, which may explain its lovely caramel colour.

As with many supermarket own-brand drinks, the packaging’s not great, but we didn’t let that put us off. The drink itself looks good and smells like apples (again, generally a good start for a cider).

It’s got a bit of fizz but not too much. It may be a bit sweet for some palates, although not half as sweet as Kopparberg. Overall, it’s as good as most of the big-brand ciders you’ll find on tap or in cans.

So, if you love your cider but are looking to reduce your alcohol, this may be your answer.
