Lambrini owner Halewood International has launched a lower-abv fruit-flavour aimed at alcopop-loving ladies.

Botany Creek has a 7.5% abv and is available now in white and rosé (rsp: £3).

Although Halewood already owns a lower-alcohol wine in Lambrini, the drinks group said Botany Creek would plug a gap for a tipple targeted at "the original generation of consumers that discovered RTDs", said head of innovation Richard Clark.

The launch will be ­supported by press ads next month.
