Brighton Gin has entered the RTD market for the first time with the launch of a bottled Raspberry Crush.

The 4.8% abv, vegan-friendly drink is made in partnership Sussex-based soft drink producer Sipsup with English raspberries, Sicilian lemons and a hint of lavender.

The gin company said the move was the first in a range of RTD products.

Brighton Gin founder Kathy Caton said: “We’re so excited to launch the first in our ready-to-drink all-natural range and really pleased to to be doing it in collaboration with locally-based soft drinks maker Sipsup. 

“The Raspberry Crush is perfect for summer picnics with friends or straight from the fridge over ice if you’re barbecuing at home.”

The new drink is available through wholesaler Black Rock Coffee.

The rrp for a 25cl bottle is £3.25.
