Not a popular drink in Singapore, this Gerolsteiner Apple Spritzer. Perhaps one of the main reasons is because it is so hard to pronounce Gerolsteiner and Spritzer. Oh, yes, most Singaporeans can pronounce Apple very well. But with more complicated words like Gerolsteiner and Spritzer, they get all confused and start mumbling. Just imagine Singaporeans attempting to order this at the coffee shop or hawker centre. “One Goal Shiner Apple Spitler prease!”

And this is a rare find. If I am not wrong, you can only find this at Cold Storage. Not even the big NTUC hypermart at my place carries this particular brand of apple drink. This is not a cheap drink. You won’t be able to buy it for S$0.70 at Sheng Siong or some coffee shop like the China Brand Apple Drink. It is a stylo-milo drink for those with exquisite taste like those highly paid actress or government officials. It is actually made from Apple Juice and mineral water!

Yes, this is the Gerolsteiner Apple Spritzer in a plastic bottle. Looks deliciously golden doesn’t it? If only all apple juice we find in our stores look like that, I will be drinking apple juice everyday. And this would look a lot cooler if it was in a glass bottle.

Made from Apple Juice and natural mineral water. I had thought that it should be made from natural apple juice and mineral water? Since when is mineral water not natural? Hmmm….Anyway, the content of fruit juice in this drink is 55% and there is no sugar added! Nice. However, I have no idea where this Apple Spritzer is made at. Is it Germany?

Check out the cap on the Gerolsteiner bottle. Again, it looks pretty good. I really like the logo. It looks like one of those medieval baron’s military coat of arms.

Some nutritional information for you. The bottle is contains half a liter of apple juice drink. The distributor for Gerolsteiner in Singapore is Hansa International Pte Ltd.

Made from Apple concentrate, carbonated natural mineral water, lemon juice from concentrate, preservatives and natural flavours.

The taste of this Gerolsteiner Apple Spritzer tastes a lot like apple juice being diluted with water. Maybe I don’t know how to appreciate Spritzer but why are we paying much more for diluted apple juice? You can get carbonated mineral water and apple juice from the stores easily and mix them together. Just use 55% of apple juice and the rest carbonated mineral water and you got Apple Spritzer! You can even skip the preservatives! And it is cheaper somemore. Do note that the apple juice from the Gerolsteiner Apple Spritzer is made from apple concentrates. Well, that’s just me.

Anyway, do any of you guys know the difference between an Apple Spritzer and an Apfelschorle?
