strongbow

Hi,

Just moved to Switzerland on 28/7/07, Wife has been here for one year.

I just have one question, quite an important one.

Where can I buy Strongbow cider (in cases), Wifes supply has been exhausted.


Many thanks

Re: strongbow

I think they have it in the Nelson, or Lion Pub. But these venues sell Staropramen, so its a while since Ive tasted it. Discouraged also by the recent crap TV ads.

Re: strongbow

You can also buy it at Coop. I'm warning you though, the last time I bought it it tasted like ass. And I love cider (i know, I know), but it tasted nothing like it does on tap, kinda funny tasting.

Re: strongbow

Drinks of the world in Zurich Main Station sell Bulmers, Strongbow and Kopparberg ciders, used to be a big Strongbow fan myself, but addicted to Bulmers now (i know they are the same company just Bulmers original seems to taste much better over here than strongbow.

Re: strongbow

I bought some the other day at the Coop at Stadelhofen (my favorite Coop, btw). They also might have it at the Coop at Bellevue as well.

Bulmers is available at Coop Lochergut. Not city centre but useful news to someone, maybe.

Some Coop shops will carry Bulmers and Koparberg, but it is hit or miss to find one that does.

Re: strongbow

Just searched the same Q almost 4 years on. Yes I'm aware of the 2 mouthfull bottles available at Coop and more recently the addition of larger bottles of Bulmers but I would also like to buy by the crate and certainly not for 4.50 per bottle. 24 cans for a tenner last time I bought it in Tesco. Are there any wholesalers selling pint cans??
