The top 10 sugary ciders

It probably comes as no surprise that a lot of carbonated ciders can be sweet, sugar-bombs. db takes a look at the top 10 most sugary ciders for you to indulge in over the summer.

They may not be something you want to sup everyday, but these ten ciders are fantastically sweet and extravagantly sugary, and ready to drink ice-cold.

Brothers Toffee Apple Cider (500ml) – 4og of sugar

Top of the list is this creamy toffee sugary indulgence, which is sure to remind you of days spent at a summer fête.

Old Mout Kiwi and Lime Cider (500ml) – 34g of sugar

This clever pairing from the New Zealand producer of aromatic kiwi and zingy lime mixed with cider is a great summery drink.

Somersby Apple Sparkling (330ml) – 26.7g of sugar

This Carlsberg-owned cider is full of fruitiness sweetness with a touch of sparkling, crisp sourness.

Magners Apple Cider (568ml) – 21g of sugar

One of the original big bottle ciders that became a massive trend in the UK around two decades ago when seemingly the entire nation was drinking Magners over ice.

Made from a blend of 17 varieties of Irish apples, this cider always hits the spot.

This Suffolk crisp, medium dry cyder is “medium bodied with a lovely mouth filling mousse and the delicate flavour of freshly pressed apples”. A lovely cider to have with food in a chilled glass.
