Yorkshire-based wine and bottled drinks distributor CWF is launching a sambuca range to cash in on the growing popularity of the Italian spirit.

The Perfetto sambuca range, which is hitting supermarkets now, comes in four variants: classic, green apple, raspberry and black liquorice (rsp: £9.99 per 70cl bottle).

With its bright elegant packaging and fruity flavours, it would provide a "modern take" on the iconic drink, said Vicky Lee, marketing manager, Continental Wine & Food.

CWF is backing the launch with print ads and sampling events.
