Which Cider You on?

Founded by the Bronsmans family over a hundred and thirty years ago in Stockholm, Kopparberg is the world's best-selling fruit cider. It arrived on our shores just eight years ago, but has already become the UK's favourite premium cider brand.

This love of fermented apples has led to The Kopparberg Urban Forest Festival, in which Scandinavian and East London cultures collide. A forest has formed behind the streets of Dalston, and up until the 3rd August you can fall under its enchantment with a magical mix of live music, street art, delicious food, and of course, the world's Number One cider.

You'll get to listen to Scandinavian acts such as Francobollo, Karin Park, and Bernhoft as well as some of the UK's top festival artists, including New Young Pony Club, and Lucy Rose.When the sun goes to bed and the stars start shining, the dancing can begin thanks to some revered London and Sweedish DJs, like
Project Fresh Socks, Hip Hop Karaoke, and Propaganda.

Kopparberg's fruit ciders are not just made out of apples, ut they also have other flavours, including Pear Cider, Strawberry & Lime, Elderflower & Lime, Mixed Fruits, and Cloudberry. As well as fab cider, youll be able to try Kopperberg's rare beers or a selection of cocktails, including East London's signature Dalston Thing, which is a mix of dark rum, melon liquer, lemon juice and Ting.

Kopparberg Urban Forest is free and open Thursdays & Fridays from 4pm - 11pm/12am. It is also open at the weekend from 12pm onwards.
