St Helier taps into shandy market

Intercontinental Brands is breaking into the shandy market with the launch of two products.

Managing director John Mills told OLN: “Shandy hasn’t been reinvented for some time. It taps into the trend for people wanting a lower abv. They want refreshment and some alcohol.”?St Helier is also continuing NPD in its cider range and has announced the launch of a Cherry with Pear cider and Blackcurrant with Pear cider.
