Kopparberg's recently-launched pink gin gets a sibling

Kopparberg has announced it is ready to add a second flavour to its new premium gin collection, just weeks after it introduced Kopparberg Strawberry & Lime Gin to the UK market.

The new variant – Kopparberg Mixed Fruit Premium Gin – will be available in Asda from June 4 for a limited period only. It is being launched in time for the summer and ahead of World Gin Day on June 8.

Like its predecessor the new gin will be infused with the same botanicals of juniper, lemon zest and coriander but it will also combine the raspberry and blackcurrant flavours which can be found it its popular Mixed Fruit cider.

Rob Salvesen, head of marketing, said: “It has not been long since we announced our first foray into the gin market with our Strawberry & Lime flavour Kopparberg Premium Gin, and following such an enormous welcome response, we are even more delighted to tell our customers that they can soon get their hands on another variant.

"Mixed Fruit came as the next obvious choice as it is a second most-loved fruit cider flavour, and we wanted to offer gin-lovers more than just one option when it came to choosing a pink gin. We hope to see many memories made outdoors with both Kopparberg Premium Gins this summer!”

The new gin will be priced at £20 for a 70cl bottle.
