Kopparberg cider gears up for summer

So in the spirit of collaboration, the company has teed up with street food impresarios Sarah and Otis Frizzell and Auckland-based DJ Aroha Harawira to hang out, sip ice cold cider and let the good times roll.

As ambassadors of the brand, the trio has joined forces in union with Kopparberg to create the perfect backdrop to summer with a series of signature events.

A talented duo, Sarah and Otis have used their creative flair and passion for food to build up their successful Lucky Taco business on Ponsonby Road. They are always full of energy and like to experiment with new and interesting flavours which is why they are a perfect fit for Kopparberg.

Speaking about the cider from her taco truck HQ Sarah says, “As a lover of cider, a crisp ice-cold Kopparberg definitely hits the spot. Not only do I enjoy drinking one after a long, hot day in the kitchen, but I love experimenting with it as an ingredient in cooking too.”

One of Sarah’s favourite flavours is the Kopparberg Naked Apple available from liquor stores throughout New Zealand.

Street food is just one piece of the giant jigsaw puzzle that is Otis’ creative talents.

Born into artistic royalty, he’s been creating works of art since he can remember. DJ, TV presenter, tattoo artist and rapper – his multiple artistic endeavours quite frankly, leave us thirsty.

Of the new collaboration Otis says, “Man cannot survive on beer alone…sometimes he needs an ice cold cider.”

Kopparberg is available in 500ml glass bottles in leading supermarkets, independent bottle stores and traditional liquor stores nationwide retailing for $5.99 a bottle. It can also be found in leading bars throughout New Zealand.

The two most popular variants – Kopparberg Strawberry & Lime and Kopparberg Elderflower & Lime – have recently been launched on tap while bottles of the former are very popular among supermarket shoppers.
