I fancied a change yesterday evening as on the weekends I usually have a glass of wine. I know my son has drank the Rekorderlig Strawberry and Lime drink before but couldn't find that one in Tesco. They had the Rekorderlig Wild Berries on offer 3 For £5 at the moment so I thought I would give it a go. Just as a change I wanted a light refreshing drink. The bottles are 500ml and are in quiet a heavy brown bottle. The design on the front has the name of the brand and winterberries on the front. This is only 1.6 units a bottle and 4% alchohol so a lighter drink that the usual heavy wines I get. The drink instead is a light fruity sweety drink and yes just takes like cordials. It reminded me of the Jubbly strawberry ice lollies we used to have in the 1970's as a child. They were a triangular shape and you popped them in the freezer and were refreshing on a hot summers day. I wouldn't normally drink alco pops but this drink reminded me of them also. I can imagine on a summers day this drink would be so refreshing after a long day at work. I will definatley buy again as I like the taste, but I can imagine that the sweet taste is not for everyone.
Rating for me is 5/5
I am not normally a cider drinker but when I came across Rekorderlig Wild Berry Cider in my local Sainsbury store it sparked my interest and I decided to buy a couple of bottles to try. The cider comes in 500ml bottles and was selling in Sainsbury's for £1.94 a bottle.
I had never come across the brand Rekorderlig before but have since found out that it a very popular brand is Sweden and is as a relatively new to the UK market. Other flavours which have been introduced to the UK market are Strawberry-Lime and Apple & Pear.
The cider is according to the bottle made from the purest spring water and is bursting with the freshest fruit flavours and is brewed in a fourth generation family run brewery in Sweden.

The cider comes in a brown glass bottle with a cream label, exactly the same as dooyoo picture. On the bottle you are advised that the cider is best served well chilled or can be served on ice. The cider is 4.0 ABV and each bottle contains 1.6 units of alcohol, unfortunately there is no nutritional information given on the bottle.

I decided to serve my cider on ice, so poured over ice into my pint glass. Once in the glass the first thing I noticed was the appearance of the drink, it was a nice pinky colour (I would say the colour is very similar to the colour to rosé wine) and was of full of lots of little bubbles. Taste wise the cider is very sweet and I would say tastes somewhere between cherryade and raspberryade. Although somewhat sweeter than I normally favour, I really did like the taste of this cider it was sweet, fruity, nicely sparkling but not to fizzy and was very refreshing. From both the look and taste of the drink you would never suspect it has any alcohol in it, it really just tastes like pop. Whether this is a good thing or not really depends on personal tastes, personally I prefer to taste the alcohol in my drinks.
I did enjoy the few bottles I had, but I would say that this is not a drink I would like to drink on a regular basis and it is a bit too sweet to be drunk in large quantities. It is however a very refreshing drink that I can see myself drinking occasionally on a hot summers day.
