Delicious Sparkling Temperance Drinks


South Africa


275 mL bottle

3.01 g sugar / oz.


Appletiser was invented in 1966 by entrepreneur apple farmer Edmond Lombardi in the fruit-growing Elgin Valley of South Africa. Using a secret blend of six different varieties of apples balanced for flavor and smell, with a bit of carbonation, but no sweeteners or preservatives. Within three years of its introduction Appletiser was already being exported to other African countries, England and Asia. In its earliest years the company made distribution deals with Coca-Cola, which later purchased a 50% share of Appletiser in 1979.


Smells deliciously ripe and appley. With carbonation, its even better.

This apple juice is sweet with just a bit of tartness to make it quite refreshing. Its densely packed with flavor. The sad thing is that it is reminding me of the sweet tart flavor of Red Bull more than the fruit taste of real apples!

The tart flavor gets a bit much near the end of the bottle, otherwise I think I'd give it a higher score.
