Archers Aqua - I love this drink, so refreshing, but when it hit £3 a bottle mark in pubs it became a no-no, despite I'm too old for Alco-pops, the Archers Aqua seemed more grown up, and also I use to have it in a glass.
The Archers Aqua range are based on a pure water, with archers alcohol in a variety of fruit flavours.
Each bottle had a white background, but the colour contrast was that according to what the fruit flavour was.
Peach - This was a lot nicer than the Archers itself, as it was less sweet in taste, and with the fizz, it was a long drink but pleasurable to drink.
Raspberry - I loved this flavour it was my joint favourite, the sharpness of the raspberry contrasted with the fuzziness of the drink.
Orange - This was my other joint favourite, it had the citruses of the orange, which contrasted well with the base of the fizz.
Apple and Cranberry - For me this was a flavour I could not get on with, whilst I like cranberry, as I find it acid and sharp, but the apple seemed like a last minute thought.
Everyone has different tastes, if we all liked the same life would be boring.
The alcohol content was 5%.
Unfortunately this is another drink that has the gas effect, and really after about 3 bottles, that is it, not from a I've had too much alcohol, but from a I'm bloated.
I have seen these in 70cl bottles in my local Adsa for £3 a bottle, there are occasions when they are on offer at 2 bottles for £4.
I would say these are great for a summer BBQ, as they are lighter than wine, and bring a summery taste to the occasion.
=Would I recommend=
I'd recommend more for a BBQ than as an actual Alco-pop in a pub,
I am reliving my younger year's drinks cabinet yet again. Archers Aqua was one of the drinks that were on multi buy offers in lots of bars and clubs that I frequented. I have to say it was not one of my favourites though! This drink is based and made with the popular Archers Peach Schnapps liquor which is a stronger spirit than this alcopop.
The Archers Aqua bottle is quite nice looking in my opinion; it is available in a small 275 ml and larger 70 cl glass bottle. The bottles have a sleeve on them which gives the bottle a frosted appearance. This frosting has small cut out bubbles and the Archers branding written in large font across the front. I will be reviewing the peach flavour drink which is an orange coloured bottle. Depending on which size you buy it either has a pop off bottle cap or a screw on cap. This drink is 5 % ABV
Archers Aqua is a clear liquid when poured and looks a lot like very fizzy lemonade. It has a good hint of peach schnapps fragrance when you smell it and it also smells very sweet and fruity. This is much like the taste of the drink, it has a strong peachy flavour to it and it tastes slightly alcoholic, but without the burn that you sometimes get with spirits.
The bubbles are wild in this beverage and if you neck it out of the bottle you can sometimes get a fizz splurge coming out of the top and up your nose! It is very fizzy and as a result quite gassy and makes me feel very full and bloated after a little bottle. It also leaves a sugary residue in your mouth, which is never pleasant.
Apart from the fizziness this is quite a refreshing and moreish drink, the flavour balance is really good and there is enough peach schnapps to keep fans of the spirit happy. It is a very sweet and slightly sickly drink however, I am not the biggest peach fan and after one or two I find that I go into peach overload mode.
Overall this is certainly not my favourite alcopop ever; I find it is very drinkable and satisfying as a single drink but that's as far as I would go with this. Archers Peach Schnapps fans and regular peach fruit eaters will no doubt enjoy it. A bit too sweet, fizzy and peachy for me! These retail for various prices but I have recently seen it priced at £3.50 each 70 cl bottle or two for £6.
I am a big fan or Archers Peach Schnapps and was quite keen to try this drink out as it offers a lower alcohol version of one of my favourite drinks and I had hoped would be as fruity and tasty too.
I opened my first bottle on a hot summers day and poured a glass with some ice. It is full of flavour as expected and I was pleased to find that this really did just taste like Peach Schnapps and lemonade but as it comes pre-mixed it was far more convenient. The drink is fizzy but is not overly gassy like some alcopops and therefore I did not feel bloated after drinking a few of these. For something a little bit stronger, i have added a shot of vodka to this and it is also delicious. This would probably work equally as we'll with Cointreau.
Archers Aqua comes in different flavours and based on my experience wit this one, I will be keen to try out all of the others too.
I don't drink a lot, but when I do I really quite enjoy fruity drinks - Caribbean twist in the mango flavour is a particular favourite of mine. I really like Archers peach schnapps as a spirit where you add different mixers to it such as lemonade and orange juice so when I saw that they do a version which is basically already diluted for you in a bottle I decided to give it a go.
The drink comes in an archers branded bottle, it is glass so remember to take it to your bottle bank when you're done drinking! It is a 70cl bottle, this is the only size that you can get this drink in - there are no multipacks of small bottles as there is with Smirnoff ice and wkd. The bottle has things such as the name, ingredients and alcohol percentage on it just as you would expect.
The alcohol content is reasonably low at just 4% in the bottle, this equates to maybe 2 units if you drink the full thing so its really not too bad since you can feel like you've drank a lot and probably wont actually be that drunk. The taste is also very nice, Archers aqua is basically Archers plus lemonade mixed together in a bottle so it is fizzy and this means it is best served chilled with some ice! This means that as well as tasting nice it is very refreshing, particularly on a hot night. I haven't really seen this when out and about, just in supermarkets. In sainsburys it is around the £3 mark and often on offer 2 for £5. Overall I think I'd probably rather have actually Archers and mix it myself, but this is a good cheap alternative.
Archers is famous for producing Archers Peach Schnapps which is a type of distilled alcoholic drink. A lighter option is available in the form of Archers Aqua. Flavours available include Peach and Raspberry.
Archers Aqua Peach is described as being "a sparkling blend of Archers Schnapps with a crisp peach taste". It falls into the alcopop genre of drinks coming in at 5% volume of alcohol. It is best served chilled. Archers Aqua comes distinctly packaged in a tall, chunky glass bottle covered by a frosted, white label. The peach variety comes complete with an orange lid and the information on the bottle is quite sparse with no complete ingredients or nutritional information being present.
Archers Aqua Peach comes in a 275ml size or a 70cl size. Asda and Tesco online don't appear to stock these so please check your local store. Sainsburys offer the large bottle at £3.12 or 2 for £5.50. Local corner shops may also stock this drink and will have various offers.
When I was a teenager, it was more fun to drink if I am being honest! Since having my son nearly 3yrs ago, I don't drink all that often but I sometimes feel like relaxing with a glass of something a bit stronger than apple juice. With it being a nice week weather wise, I hopped down my local shop to pick up a wee drink. My choice was a 70cl bottle of Archers Aqua Peach for which I paid £3.50.
This was a particular favourite of mine a few years ago. I was going to opt for a Bicardi Breezer or WKD but decided to go for this one as I fancied something fresh and fruity. I have actually managed to let this bottle last me for a few nights as I have been chilling out on the balcony with a glass whilst the sunsets..sounds bliss doesn't it? You wouldn't say that if you knew what my view was like! Anyway, the proper Archers peach is too strong for me even when blended with lemonade so the lighter, Aqua one is suitable for me.
Pouring a glass of Aqua, the fizziness is evident and the bubbles rise up through the crystal clear drink. The aroma offered is light and airy but tasting the drink proves much more appealing. As I started to sip this drink the other night, memories of my teenage years flooded back and I chilled out. 5% volume isn't all that strong and I didn't want to get drunk but it is good to get a sense of the alcohol within.
With many drinks, I know which spirit is present but the lack of information on Archers means I have no idea what I am drinking. The fizziness on my tongue is a strange sensation but isn't as powerful as Bacardi Breezer and Archers Aqua seems to settle quickly turning quite still and flat as time goes on. I have kept my bottle chilled in the fridge and it tastes so much better as it is super cold and refreshing..perfect for the hot weather we have experience recently.
The taste dancing on my tongue, in my opinion, is all fruity. I adore peach tastes and scents but peach can be hard to pull off. In Archers Aqua, it offers a sweet, tasty infusion with the peach coming through smooth tasting against the fizz. It offers the right level of sweetness for me but it may be a little sweet for others as its rather powerful. The alcohol taste comes through lightly as the sweetness of the peach lingers after swallowing. It isn't too harsh but feels a tad burny as it goes down my throat.
Archers Aqua Peach isn't as widely available as it used to be which I can only assume is down to new, cooler drinks being released! I have enjoyed sampling this drink again as it chilled me out and kept me refreshed whilst watching the sun going down. Despite the lack of information available, I can only imagine this isn't too healthy for you but this doesn't bother me as I don't drink much.
Archers Aqua Peach isn't an overly strong drink in terms of alcohol but one glass is plentiful to give me a little tipsy feeling! I managed to get around 4 glasses from my big bottle over 3nights. When I was younger, one of these bottles would have floored me but then again, I have never been a big drinker! Archers Aqua is ideal for the ladies to drink as my fiance certainly wouldn't be seen with a bottle! For summer parties and barbeques it is ideal.
I recommend this refreshing drink for a light tipple but try and find it first :)
PS Enjoy in moderation and always drink responsibly!
These are gorgeous but I haven't seem them for sale anywhere for years now.
Archers Aqua is a blend of Archers Peach Snapps with a bit of fizz and other flavours. Your could get them in lots of different flavours including peach, cranberry and raspberry. The peach one tastes like Archers and lemonade and is lovely to drink.
The bottles are really cute to look at as they are white and each flavour has a different colour on it i.e peach has peach colour, raspberry has pink etc. I think they are a very girly drink though and the bottles reflect this so don't think they would really appeal to men if they saw them for sale in a pub or the supermarket as they are quite sophisticated and dainty looking.
I used to buy them from the supermarket and also in pubs and clubs and they used to be everywhere but I think they have stopped selling them now. You used to be able to buy a small individual bottle or a larger bottle. I used to pay about £2.30 for one bottle in a pub which is about average for an alcopop but they were a lot cheaper in the supermarket.
These taste absolutely gorgeous. They are so fruity and refreshing and are perfect for drinking on a hot summer day. They are sweet but not too sweet and they do not taste bitter at all and they have doesn't really taste like you are drinking alcohol. If you like to drink Archers then I think you will love these. My favourites are the peach one and the raspberry one. They are nice and fizzy but they never made me feel bloated even after a couple.
I would definately recommend these. I really miss these and would love one right now.
Wow, it's been a long time since I actually drank this stuff but I remember loving it and only stopped drinking it as in my local bar the price went up to £3.50 a bottle!!! - Shocking I know!
The archers Aqua range are delicious, fruity, fresh and definitely fizzy. They come in peach, raspberry, orange, apple and cranberry. Raspberry is definitely my favourite and the one I prefer to drink.
The taste of each of these drinks is very strong. You can easily distinguish between which is which. This alcoholic beverage is around 5% per bottle.
Archers Aqua is a nice drink to have if you are not planning on getting very drunk as it does take a lot of these to get you drunk., plus it will cost you a fortune. The drinks can be a bit sickly after a while and slightly boating due to their fizzy-ness.
You can buy larger bottles of these drinks from most supermarkets. They usually cost around £3 for a 1litre bottle. A great price compared to the pubs and bars around here. Also sometimes they are placed on offer at 2 for 4 pounds.
What to say about possibly the yummiest drink ever. Oh boy is Archers the greatest thing i've ever tasted. Achers Aqua is the best drink invented. Its delicious, refreshing, fruity, comes in plenty of flavours, has a generous amount of alcohol without going over the top. The first flavour i tried was raspberry and although peach is very yummy too, raspberry remains my favourite. It had never occurred to me to try the peach variety because i'm not a big fan of peach. I was pleasantly surprised by Archers peach though as the flavour isn't too overpowering. Its just perfectly peachy. Obviously there are downsides as there is with everything in life. In pubs they can be quite expensive, in my local for example they cost £2.90 each which mounts up quickly when you need to drink at least ten to get a bit tipsy. Also people used to drinking wine or spirits will find the alcohol content quite low at around 5%. Most wine has between 7 and 13% alcohol. Also sugar filled alcopops are a big source of calories. I'm not sure of the calories in a bottle of Archers Aqua but Bacardi Breezers are a similar kind of drink and they have 340 calories per bottle. Which is a huge amount when the recommended daily calorie intake for a woman is 2000 calories. If you drank ten of them in a night (which is the minimum i'd drink on a night out) you'd have drank almost double (3400) your daily recommended calories! And thats before your pizza or kebab on the way home! Anyway, here come the details: Archers Aqua, available in Peach, Raspberry, Orange, Apple and Cranberry. Costs between £2.50 and £3 in most pubs and clubs, with a few exceptions such as Wetherspoons where it costs £1.69. Costs £4.47 for a four pack from Asda and £2.48 for a 70 cl bottle.
My flatmate isn't on Dooyoo. She doesn't understand why I spend as much time on here as I do, or why I feel the need to travel hundreds of miles to have a beer with a bunch of complete strangers. When I have a challenge, though, she finds it easy to get involved. By "get involved", I mean "takes the piss". And the more distasteful she thinks I will find the product under consideration, the more "involved" she gets. And when I told her I?d been challenged by BigYummyAngel to review Archer's Aqua Peach, she was more "involved" than ever! Rolling on the floor "involving" her ass off, as I believe is the current phrasing. Archers made quite a late foray into the world of Alco pops, being soundly beaten by Bacardi and their Breezers and only just getting in ahead of Bailey's, not a natural contender for an Alco pop style drink in my eyes. Even Gordon's, a brand which I never anticipated as having youth (or, rather, young adult) appeal, being my mother's tipple of choice, beat them to it. And, despite already having a fruit flavoured spirit to their name, several fruit juice and vodka based drinks from companies you'd never heard of were also in the market ahead of Archers. The problem could have been the Archers itself. Whereas Bacardi and Vodka lend themselves to a pairing with fruit juice, being not exactly full of taste, Archers has a naturally strong fruit flavour, being peach schnapps. Ensuring this didn't overpower any of the other fruit flavourings would be quite a task, especially as no new Alco pop could hit the market with just a single flavour, given the range of Bacardi Breezers and WKD already there. This, I suspect, is the reason you don't see Malibu Alco pops. And, let's face it, peach isn't really the first one you think of when asked to name a fruit! The bottles take the standard Archers branding - with a plastic covering t
rying to give that frosted glass appearance. A colour ed band around the top denotes the flavour, although I would suggest caution if buying for the first time, as there is some similarity between both peach and orange and between cranberry and raspberry, which could result in you grabbing the wrong one in a hurry. If this is the case, go for the lime one, as that will avoid any mistakes! I didn't have that option, though, as the peach flavour was the one that came off the shelf and into my hand. Once home, I couldn't wait to break into the bottle and give it the taste test.* Once into the bottle, there's a welcoming peach smell, which is only to be expected, with it being peach flavoured. The first taste is a not entirely unpleasant experience. I quite like peach as a flavour, but this is a lot sweeter than I expected. It's been a while since I tried a peach, but memory recalls it having a slight edge. There doesn't seem to be any of that here, although there is eventually a slight bitterness in the aftertaste, but that's not immediately evident. Of course, I'm not much of a fan of sweet things, which could affect my taste buds. So a second opinion is required and flatmate, when she can be persuaded to stop laughing at the sight of the bottle in my hand, has a taste. She didn't think it was overly sweet, even going so far to say that it's less sweet than an Archers and lemonade would be. Once you've got used to the taste, though, it does slip down fairly quickly. It's not a particularly gassy drink, so it doesn't leave you feeling too bloated. That said, the bottles (yes, I bought two for the sake of research, OK, and I have drunk both!) were sitting in my fridge for a while before I plucked up the courage to open them, so it may be that a fresher bottle would be more gassy. The bitterness and acidity of the aftertaste is very slight, so there is a tendency to keep drin
king. I'm by no means an expert at guessing ingred ients and there are none printed on the bottle, but I suspect that all that goes into a bottle of Archer's Aqua Peach is a shot and a half of archers topped up with soda water. I suspect the same flavour could be obtained far more cheaply by mixing a peach cordial with tap water. Admittedly, that wouldn't get you drunk but, at 5% alcohol by volume, Archer's Aqua is going to take its time getting you drunk anyway. However, for people with a sweeter tooth or who are more of a fan of peach than I am, it is something you could probably drink all night without it becoming too sickly. The two bottles I had was really my limit, though. And at what cost? Well, my 275ml bottle from my local off licence set me back £1.40. Sainsbury's are advertising 4 bottles of the same size for £4.99, while Tesco currently have an offer of 5 275ml bottles for £6.00 for any flavour or a 4 pack of 275ml bottles at £3.99, although their normal price for these would be £4.79. Tesco also offer a 70cl (700ml) bottle for £2.48. In a pub or club, I suspect this would be priced up into the stratosphere along with most Alco pops, so expect to be paying anything from £2.00 upwards for a bottle. If you're going to be drinking something like Archers anyway, then dive straight in, as the taste experience will be what you're used to. For a bitter drinker like myself, it's too sweet and for those used to a different fruit flavour, peach is a bit of an acquired taste, really. Indeed, apart from the novelty of having a peach flavoured Alco pop, there's very little to recommend this drink. It's not one I'll be trying again and, of the drinks I've been challenged to write about, I have to express a slight preference for the Babycham, to be honest. The label states that there is 1.5 units of alcohol in a single 275ml bottle. As a final disclaimer, please re
member that this is an alcoholic drink, and so shouldn't be partaken of if you intend to drive, or by anyone under the age of 18. And it certainly shouldn't be drunk by me! *This sentence may not be entirely true...
I never really understood the point of bottles of mixers. They're full of carbon dioxide and taste like watered down versions of their parents (the original spirit). They make me feel sick and gas you up so you burp in everyones face all night! Not attractive! Archers Aqua are just like little bottle of p**s water.. they have no point in life. I might as well take one bottle of archers and mix it 20/80 with water and sell it at twice the price... Hang on a minute... That sounds like a good marketing ploy... I'll call it 'Archers Aqua'. No, noone could be stupid enough to fall for that! They are the beautiful God of Archer watered down with nastly little flavours. They are in pretty little bottles so if that's what turns you on... go ahead. There are those of you who favour looks over substance... These babies are never gonna get you drunk unless your eight or something. They come in different flavours like Cranberry, Lime and Peach! Cranberry is vile, it's for people with urinary tract infections... i should know (that's a whole other story you'll probably never get to hear on this website!). Then Peach flavour!!!!!!!!!!! Archers is peach schnaps so what the hell is the point. Useless...... utterly useless. Still i'm a student, i'll drink anything you put infront of me!
I love Archers Aqua - it's light and the taste is far better than any of the Bacardi Breezer range. But, to be honest, if there is something i like from Archers best is their screensaver! (Sad?) Well, not really, I was really surprised about the design of the screensaver (it's really cute -full of hearts for Valentine's Day, but keeps changing according to the time of the year). PLUS you get lots of FLIRTING TIPS which are quite handy. AND if you send the screensaver to 3 friends, you get a rucksack for FREE!!!! only until 28 February. The screensaver is free and can be downloaded from www.archers.com/downloads
I'm one of those people who are not blessed with a sweet tooth, although I do enjoy most alcopops on the market. Archers Aqua is really not one of my favourites, as it's really really sweet and almost thick as a result. Far too syruppy for my liking. Maybe this opinion was bred by the fact that I tried the most sweet, Peach flavour, first. Yes, I love Archers, but as you know, it's very syrupy, and Peach Archers Aqua is very much like normal Archers, and a whole 33cl bottle of it really is too much for me. Having said that, the lime and cranberry flavours are absolutely fine, although the taste of Archers s a bit strange. Personally, I prefer the flavour of just the one fruit in a drink, and these two mixes do taste a bit odd. I'd recommend Bacardi Breezer in these to flavours over Archers Aqua. I'd say that the Orange flavour is sitting on the fence between Peach on the "too sweet" side, and cranberry and lime on the "bareable" side. Orange and peach does taste nice, but again, it really is too sweet for my tastes. I also find that bottle drinks don't serve the purpose for which you buy them, i.e. to get drunk. It's a very expensive way of buying booze, and for this reason really, I don't recommend Archers Aqua. All in all, Archers is lovely, but Archers Aqua is a bit more dodgy I think. And if you're planning on drinking it all night, prepare for it to be very expensive!
If you like Archers then ya'll love these... Archers Aqua... Quite yummy ... First time I tried it was because it was on offer at the supermarket, I tried the peach one first and I really should have just stuck to peach and not ventured on to the others... It comes in a number of flavours including, Peach, Lime, Cranberry and Orange. My favourite is Peach because it tastes just like Archers neat if you have ever tried Archers and lemonade then thats pretty much the aqua version, a very refreshing taste and a little different from other bottles that have started to take over... The lime one is also very nice somehow it tastes like Arches but has a lime tint to it giving it a more fruity taste and it is not as sweet as the peach one, it has a definite tang to it so it doesn't leave you still thirsty. The Cranberry one and the Orange ones are my least favourite but then again I dont really like anything cranberry I find it far to sweet and mixed with archers it just doesn't do anything for me other than give me a sugar rush!! The orange one is like an alcoholic orange juice but u just cant taste the alcohol really, again I find this far too sweet and fruity for me there is a little sharpness there but nothing much to really impress. I think these drinks need an edge or a tang to them, they need to be refreshing and not clogging ya mouth up leaving with the feeling that you need a pint of water just to clear ya throat! The drinks although very sweet they are not very strong about 5% which is about normal for any alcopop drink. Like everything it is down to personal taste but if you are looking for a refreshing drink then i suggest the lime or peach aqua's as they have more of the tangyness that I seem to like so much here lol Price wise they are on the same lines as any other bottled drink you can usual pick one up for £1.50 in supermarkets but more like £2.50 in a bar or club (unless
its happy hour or that there just not selling to good!!!) Overall the drinks are ok... but nothing really wow just another alcopop to add to the every growing list...
I tried this drink a few weeks ago, just because it was new and I wasn't buying the round! I like Archers neat, as it's nice and fruity with little taste of alcohol, (I'm one of these weird people who can taste alcohol, it's a bummer!) Anyway, I tried Aqua, because I like Archers and like to try new things. It is downright gorgeous. So fruity, even I can't taste the alcohol, it's just like fruit juice, (so watch how much you drink as it packs a punch after a couple!) A bit expensive in the pubs at aroung £2.50ish, though most supermarkets have it for 99p at the moment. Definitely orth it if you like mixer drinks. Scrumptious
A couple of weeks ago I came across a flyer advertising yet another student night in Manchester. However, this student night was different- it was for the launch of 'Archers Aqua', an alcopop drink form the makers of Archers. The Product ------------ The drink is a mixture of Archers, carbonated water and a flavour. Be warned though- these drinks are incredibly sweet. They are basically popular drinks made with Archers and a mixture. As with other alcopops, these drinks contain about 5% alcohol, therefore it is not that strong and it will take quite a few to get yourself drunk, if you are an average drinker. The Flavours ------------ Peach- The peach flavour tastes exactly the same as drinking Archers and Lemonade! Basically it can be described as Archers and Lemonade disguised as Archers Aqua Peach. Orange- This one has a refreshing taste to it, and it is hard to tell that there is actually Archers in it. Lime- A very bitter taste to this, despite its sweetness. Again, it is difficult to taste the Archers in it, although it is easy to tell that there is alcohol in this. Cranberry- I haven't yet tasted this one, although I have been told it is sweet and has a strong cranberry taste. Overall Comments ---------------- Having tasted three of the four flavours, I find this drink far too sweet. The only good flavour is the orange flavour, and even then, it is not that brilliant. The price of this drink is currently 99p in the supermarkets, although it is on special offer, with prices rising to £1.39. In pubs and clubs expect to pay the same price as other alcopops like Smirnoff Ice, which to me is preferable to Archers Aqua. The only time I would recommend buying Archers Aqua is if you want an Archers and Lemonade, and want to save a bit of money!
