Eric BlairMay 2nd

The wonderful people at Kopparberg have combined its famous strawberry and lime flavour with everyone’s favourite tipple - gin!

The Swedish cider company, famous for its fruity beverages, has branched away from its roots. Distilled for pink gin enthusiasts, the drink is infused with the flavours that made Kopparberg famous and will be available from May 6th at over 700 Greene King pubs across the UK.

It comes with an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 37.5 per cent, compared to only 4 per cent in its cider.

Rob Salvesen, from Kopparberg, said: "We are extremely excited to be bringing our new Premium Gin to the UK.


"Kopparberg is famous for flavour and we’ve worked hard to create a pink gin in the iconic Kopparberg flavour of strawberry and lime, that we know the nation loves.

"We look forward to seeing pink gin fans across the country spend many sunsets making memories with friends this summer with a glass of Kopparberg Premium Gin.”

In the last ten years sales of gin - affectionately known as Mother's Ruin - have tripled, with drinkers spending around £460 million on gin last year, up by 32.5 per cent on the previous year, according to the Office for National Statistics.
