Halewood launches Brambles cider

27 May, 2010

Halewood International is launching an over-ice fruit cider targeted at 25 to 45-year-old women.

The launch of Brambles will be supported by sampling, online activity and POS.

There are two versions of the pear cider-based drink, a white and a rosé.

The ciders have an ABV of 5.5% and are packaged in a 75cl glass bottle, in bid to appeal to rosé wine drinkers and consumers of RTDs.

They will retail at around £2.99 a bottle in the off-trade.

Richard Clark, head of innovation at Halewood, said: “The young adult generation are now moving away from RTDs and looking for something new, fruity and refreshing to move on to.”

Talking terroir

When Bordeaux was in fashion, it seemed almost logical that we should fetishise winemakers. Here were people responsible for brilliant acts of blending, across large estates and multiple grape varieties, including superstars such as cabernet sauvignon and merlot. These days, fashion has moved on and pinot noir is ascendant. As a result, the star of the winemaker has fallen and we find ourselves following a new star in the sky: terroir.
