The Hot Press guide to the best beers, spirits, bars and artisanal food.
Born on a sunny terrace in Stockholm back in 2012, älska is the Scandi cider that has become a worldwide sensation. The concept, promoted by the founder Fredrik Lindén, was quite simple – to create the best tasting cider possible by starting the Swedish Cider Company. And the result…well, it’s difficult to argue with the results!
älska Cider bursts with the kind of clean, crisp, fruity flavours that are absolutely necessary for quenching on thrist on a sunny day (or for those winter evenings when you’re trying hard to remember what sunshine is…)But beyond that, it’s the range of flavours and the inventiveness of the brewers which makes älska unique. Their Passion Fruit Apple Cider is a real tropical explosion, while their Apple, Cinnamon & Winter Spices cider delivers a satisfying taste and is perfect for a nice mulled cider.
On top of that, älska is able to proudly boast that everything they make can be traced right back to real berries and real fruits, meaning that not only is it free of unnecessary additives, it’s also vegan and gluten free!
