I had my first taste of Rekorderlig about 2 and a half years ago in the UK. They have a crazy range of ciders available to them in Europe, but Rekorderlig seems to come out on top. The boyfriend’s mom even made sure she bought some for me the last time we visited a few months ago. We ended up trying to bring a couple of bottles back into the country, but they got smashed inside our luggage at OR Tambo.
The good news is that i don’t have to worry about sketchy transportation and having to ration two 500ml bottles out over the course of a year – because Rekorderlig is now in SA! If you’ve never been a cider person, i would challenge you to trying this specific cider out. The three flavours that have been brought to SA are the 3 staples in their range, and each of them tastes like heaven: Strawberry-Lime, Wild Berries and Pear!
Rekorderlig is still brewed in the small Southern Swedish village of Vimmerby, and made from natural ingredients – no syrups are used! You might also be wondering why Rekorderlig comes in 500mL glass bottles? Was it a carefully crafted ploy? Was it a huge amount of research that pointed to it? Neither! The reason is simple, Rekorderlig was first served in a 500mL bottle due to the Swedish recycling restrictions. All Cider was served in 500mL bottle to aid in the government’s commitment to create a green Sweden. Which is pretty sweet!
Just in case you want to get your hands on some of this deliciousness, here is a handy guide so you know where to get it:
