Cider is ready for its star turn

Lg2's redesign of Milton Star ciders is Insta-worthy.


Rosé has had a leading role in many Instagram posts for the past few summers. Cider, meanwhile, has taken the role of understudy, patiently waiting for its star return.

The recent redesign of Milton Star ciders could be the moment the popular summer drink went from waiting in the wings to centre stage on Insta posts of millennials from coast-to-coast.

Lg2 led the redesign of the sparkling, alcoholic drinks by the Sainte-Cecile-de-Milton, Que.-based Cidery Milton.

The slim can is Insta-perfection in millennial pink and bright orange.

Posters hanging from string in nature would fit right in on any Millennials social-media feeds.

Rosé has become a victim of its own success, becoming too ubiquitous. Perhaps it’s time to cede a bit of the spotlight to cider who seems ready for its turn in the Instagram spotlight.
