Where can I buy Somersby merchandise?

We think it’s pretty cool that you want to see what we make aside from our ciders. In fact, we have a limited supply of Somersby merchandise exclusively available on Wahoo! If you’ve seen some refreshing Somersby merchandise at an event or festival, it’s bad news, friends – this was most likely marketing material that is not put on sale after the event.

So vegans, we’ve pretty much got you covered – the vast majority of our ciders can be considered to be made from vegan friendly ingredients. That is unless they contain carmine (found in Blackberry, Red Rhubarb, Mango & Lime, Sparkling Rosé and Sparkling Spritz). And hey, it’s easy to spot – the use of carmine (E120) is on the ingredient list in markets where the ingredient list is given.

We’ll cheer to that! Listen up, though.
