Somersby’s Somertime Launch at Glasshouse @ Seputeh

On the 29th of March, I was invited to the launch of Somersby's latest campaign – Somertime, Anytime. The launch event took place at Glasshouse at Seputeh and it's one of my favorite event location in KL. For the month of April, Somersby invites cider lovers to make the most of Malaysia’s all-round ‘summer’ by extending experiencing a fun and jolly campaign named Somertime, Anytime featuring Somersby Apple cider, Somersby Blackberry cider and Somersby Sparkling Rosé on the wheel.

By the way, Kombi is one of my favorite car!

At the event, Somersby presented three iconic Somertime Volkswagen Kombi vans with open hatch roofs and fold-out countertops, doubling up as Somersby bars, were unveiled to over 300 guests, trade partners and members of the press. The vehicles, decked with flamboyant Somersby branding are deployed to meet cider lovers through nationwide sampling activations celebrating life’s little pleasure when one enjoys a Somersby.

I did indulge in all three Somersby cider which were offered at the event.

There's a few insta-worthy spots for guest who wanted to upload their pictures on their Instagram account.

Charles Wong, Marketing Director of Carlsberg Malaysia said, “Somertime, Anytime accentuates Somersby as a fun, spontaneous and care-free brand! The Somertime VW Kombi vans and nationwide promotions will enable cider lovers to enjoy Somertime, Anytime and reinforces Somersby’s position as the best-selling cider in Malaysia.”

During the launch gambit, Carlsberg Malaysia’s management team made a special appearance and served guests their favourite Somersby variants from the makeshift Somertime VW kombi van bars. As guests sipped on their cider, many were seen trying out UV body marbling art with neon and ultraviolet paint as well as the Somersby tree ring toss game. For the social media lovers, lounge pockets such as garden swings, seesaws and ‘hang-out beds’ were the perfect chill out spot to get those Insta-worthy moments!
