When it comes to alcoholic beverages, guess what comes up at the top of my list?
I most certainly do prefer my whiskeys, cider, champagne & liqueur when given a choice.
A while back, I received an invitation from Lord Somersby to attend the launch of Somersby cider in Malaysia.
The other half and I taking a swig of the delicious apple cider by Somersby!
The event took place at a historical venue – the magnificent & colonial Carcosa Seri Negara
Boasting Neo-Gothic & Tudor Revival styles, these mansions were home to the British High Commissioners back in the day and the official residence of Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II on her visits.
One of the mansions – the Carcosa
The venue was a perfect place to hold a garden party for the fully imported Swedish premium cider.
I loved the entire set-up!
It was celebrated in a form of a garden party. Apples & garden parties are an amazing combo!
As it was a garden party, I decided to follow the theme.
I wore something casual & light, with a hint of nature/floral motifs.

En route to the Somersby garden party!
When we arrived, we were ushered to the garden venue
I saw hoards and hoards of apples lined up at every corner possible – it made me a very happy girl!
As I love apples (both red and green), I did not hesitate to munch on what ended up as 4 apples that night!
Cheers to a more refreshing, lighter & sweeter alternative to beer!
The press conference began and Soren Ravn (Managing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia) shared some
interesting information and insights regarding the new Somersby cider in Malaysia
A toast to Somersby's launch!
To be amongst the first few to taste the Somersby cider upon its launch in Malaysia is truly an honour 🙂
I must really commend its taste! It was flavourful with so much zest, yet not too overbearing!
So refreshing… and healthier too!
Somersby cider is made from fermented apple juice, natural ingredients and only 4.5% alcohol content!
It promises easy drinking refreshment with sparkling bubbles that makes every sip exciting.
If an apple a day keeps the doctor away, I hope this counts! 😛
Theboyf and I approves! The cider was absolutely marvellous
Best part is?
Somersby Cider is free from all artificial flavourings, sweeteners and colouring
Cheers to that! So much love for Somersby
Somersby's light-hearted and entertaining disposition brought us fun, laughter & unpredictable moments
We were also shown a very peculiar and amusing video footage of the excited Lord Somersby upon discovering the crazy amount of apples here in Malaysia.
The CCTV footages were filmed in various hypermarkets and grocery chain stores.
Lord Somersby filling his trolley with apples!
Right after that, was the gambit of the whole event.
We had a very special guest in the house today! Guess who?
None other than Lord Somersby himself!
It was great seeing his cheerful demeanour and deep, hearty laugh!
He waltzed and twirled around on stage with his bevy of ladies
Lord Somersby giving us a warm welcome and sharing his story
It's like history brought back to life!
Lord Somersby is the father of many great discoveries – but the most famous of them all is probably Somersby cider, which was once known as the favorite drink of celebrities like Napoleon, Cleopatra and Newton.

With that, it was time to serve MORE Somersby cider to all the guests present
Theboyf and I clinking our glasses in celebration!
Managed to grab a photo with Lord Somersby at the photowall too!
Thank you for a lovely time, dear Lord Somersby
It was a great pleasure to have attended this party and to celebrate this eventful evening with you!
Congratulations on an apple-rific launch of the Somersby Apple Cider in Malaysia
