Morrisons Low Alcohol Cider

English | Cymraeg

A review of Morrisons Low Alcohol Cider - a low-alcohol supermarket cider. A mix of cider and apple juice, it is more sweet than refreshing.



ABV: 1%
Calories per bottle: TBC

As far as we can see, Morrisons, Sainsbury’s and Waitrose are the only big grocery stores who’ve ventured into market with their own low-alcohol ciders. So, credit where credit is due.

They next question is: would you want to drink them? In this case, possibly not.

Like most low-alcohol ciders, this one is a mix of cider and apple juice, but they also chucked in some extra sugar. The result is a drink that’s a bit too sweet, as well as being a bit too gassy. It’s refreshing enough when chilled, but we can’t say it’s great cider, sorry.

As with a number of the alcohol-free beers (hello, San Miguel and Sainsbury’s) this cider is also let down by its packaging. When you’ve made a decision to lay off the booze for a bit, it would be nice to have more alcohol-free options that at least look like a treat.
