The Swedish cider maker has infused its first gin with the same strawberry and lime flavours as its cider.

 

Kopparberg Premium Gin is a 37.5 per cent ABV pink gin, aimed at the booming gin market - a sector that has seen sales double in the last year, according to the company.

The gin is double distilled over two weeks and infused with juniper, lemon zest and coriander as well as strawberry and lime flavours.

It is being launched exclusively into Greene King pubs now before a roll out next month (June).

Suggested serves include with lemonade and garnished with slices of fresh strawberry & lime, and with tonic for a more traditional experience, garnished with cucumber & basil.

Rob Salvesen, head of marketing at Kopparberg UK said: "We've made it our mission to use our drinks knowledge and flavour expertise to bring the spirit of Kopparberg to life.

"Not many know that we brew and distill many other drinks in our brewery in Sweden and with over 10 years' experience in distilling gin, as well as our success as flavour leaders here in the UK and around the world, it was an obvious decision for us to introduce Kopparberg Premium Gin in one of our most iconic flavours.
