As city dwellers, we love the cosmopolitan buzz, but Strongbow believes we must never lose our connection with nature. An apple cider that comes straight from the orchard, Strongbow brings nature to the city and invites urbanites to experience its uplifting natural refreshment.

'Refreshing by Nature' offers a fresh perspective between the relationship of urbanites and nature. Together with three nature champions, Strongbow has created an interactive experience of nature at Ground Floor, Concourse Level, 1Utama Shopping Mall from now till Sunday, 29th July 2019!

Here is a glimpse of ‘Refreshing By Nature’:
