Gaymers launches tropical variant

02 April, 2013

Gaymers has added a pear cider blended with pineapple, mango and passion fruit flavours to its range.

The brand was relaunched June 2012 with a new design, and it has enjoyed volume growth since, with Nielsen figures showing it up 67% year-on-year (six months to 2/2/13).

It is extending its five-strong range to drive sales in the “warm up to summer festival fun”.

Over the past year the flavoured cider market has gone up 61% in volume in the UK off-trade (Nielsen to 2/2/13) and Gaymers’ head of innovation Victoria Walker said: “Recognising this growth and the space for innovation in the flavoured cider market, we have created what we believe to be a delicious new addition to the Gaymers line up and an exciting development in the category.

"The new variant embodies the fun spirit and energy of the brand and we’re sure it will become a sure fire hit at events and parties across the year.”

The new flavour, which comes in 50cl bottles, will be available nationwide in Asda from April and in Tesco from May.

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.
