McEwan’s Export is being expanded into a 500ml bottle format.

The bottles, supplied through wholesale and cash & carry in outer packs of eight (rsp: £1.99 per bottle), contain the same 4.5% abv premium ale sold in the can and carry the Laughing Cavalier design.

“McEwan’s Export was the only brand in the top 10 of premium canned ales that didn’t offer a bottled option,” said Wells & Young’s marketing director Chris Lewis.
