Double, double, toil and trouble...but there's no wool of bat and tongue of dog in this cauldron.

Thousands of the branded vessels are being distributed by WKD-owner SHS Drinks ahead of Halloween.

The company is using the cauldrons to push four of its sharing cocktails and has created a mixing guide for pub staff to make things easier on the day. The cocktails are:

 

  • Cheeky Vamp – (with WKD Blue)
  • Manghoul – (with new WKD Mango Crush)
  • Bloody Berry – (with WKD Berry)
  • Venom – (with WKD Blue)

 

Alongside the cauldrons SHS Drinks will be providing a range of Halloween POS items and is running a competition across social media to raise awareness of the activity in pubs and bars..

"Halloween is becoming a bigger and bigger event in the on-trade calendar each year," says Amanda Grabham, head of brand marketing – alcohol at SHS Drinks.

"Our Halloween activity is all about facilitating a fun evening for consumers and helping licensees maximise the seasonal opportunity. This October, with the scariest night of the year falling on a Wednesday, outlets can choose whether to hold celebrations the weekend before, the weekend after, or on the night itself.

"Our WKD cocktails are perfect for groups of friends to share and, served in our eye-catching WKD Cocktail Cauldrons, they'll make a real impression this Halloween," concludes Grabham.
