Ciders and drinks ready for anything
In the case of ready-to-drink low-alcohol drinks, Sobieski Impress (12%), Smirnoff Ice (7%) and Bacardi Breezer (6%) were the best in unaided tests. The same brands also achieved the highest scores in the aided test – Sobieski Impress (30%) was leading again followed by Smirnoff Ice (29%) and Bacardi Breezer (24%). Other brands were indicated spontaneously only by single respondents of CBM Indicator. Interesting is the case of Finland Frost, which although was outside the top five (17%) in the aided test, it was just behind the podium (3%) in the unaided test.
Sale of cider and alcoholic beverages in small-format stores and supermarkets
Ciders and drinks, the so called RTD drinks, belong to the categories that have marginal importance in the spirit market. The both categories are characterised by seasonality with the highest increase in summer sales volume, with cider being more noticeable. Between June 2016 and May 2017, approximately 45% of the value generated from the sale of ciders and drinks was in this period, both in small format stores up to 300 m2 and in supermarkets (300-2500 m2). In those months, the number of transactions involving cider or drink was up to 1.5 times higher than the average of the last 12 months in both types of stores. The share of ciders and drinks in the value of sales of alcoholic beverages in small-format stores and also in larger establishments does not exceed 1%. In larger establishments, the situation is slightly better, as almost all stores with alcohol sale have ciders on their shelves, and the average number of variants in May 2017 was 8.

The grapes, however, have a decent opponent already in Normandy alone. It’s... an apple. This spherical fruit with juicy pulp became the basis of three beers typical of this region of France – cider, calvados and pommeau.
