Henry Westons launches bag-in-box mulled cider

13 October, 2014

Westons has launched a mulled version of its Henry Westons cider in bag-in-box.

The drink blends Henry Westons cider with cinnamon and mulled spices at 4% abv, and is ready to drink once warmed on the hob.

The 2.25-litre pack will keep for six weeks once opened, which Westons says makes it ideal for parties or for single serves.

Senior brand manager Matthew Langley said: “The mulled cider category has seen huge growth over the last three years, yet until now there has been a gap in the market for a larger sharing format which will keep for more than just a few days. The time was therefore right to launch Henry Westons bag-in-box Mulled Cider to the take-home market. 

“We originally launched our Mulled Cider into the on-trade in 2012, and volumes last year were up 200% on the previous year, which reflects how consumer demand for the product is growing phenomenally. 

“According to Mintel, 69% of consumers will consider cider in sharing formats such as bag-in-box, and with 56% of consumers drinking cider at least once a month through the winter, our new bag-in-box Mulled Cider is likely to be a huge hit with consumers.”

The launch follows a brand refresh for the whole Henry Westons range, which is now on shelves.
