Like Kopparberg, Rekorderlig are Swedish and relative newcomers to the cider market. The brewery was founded in 1996 in Vimmerby in the south of the country, a town also famous as the home of the children’s author Astrid Lindgren, creator of the anarchic Pippy Longstocking. Much like Pippy, Rekordelig pride themselves on being very Swedish and “refreshingly different”. So, does this cider stand out?

Having tasted it, we’re not quite sure where to place it. It’s certainly very different to standard strength Rekorderlig Strawberry and Lime at 4% ABV, which is a sharp, almost sour drink. This low-alcohol version, on the other hand, is pretty sweet, reminding some of a certain childhood favourite.

So, if you’re a fan of sweet ciders, give it a go. If you normally drink full-strength Rekorderlig Strawberry and Lime, you may find it disappointing, which makes us ask whether there’s a gap in the market for a sourer adult-orientated alcohol-free cider? And, if there is, maybe Rekorderlig should be aiming to fill it.
