Posh soft drinks brand Franklin & Sons has partnered with craft gin brands Caorunn and Manchester Gin for a duo of new canned RTDs.
The first pairs Caorunn Gin with Franklin & Sons Natural Indian Tonic Water (6% abv), while the second matched Franklin & Sons Sicilian Lemon Tonic Water with Manchester Raspberry Infused Gin (5.5% abv). They have both launched in 250ml cans.
Caorunn’s tie-up offered “a modern premium London Dry, crisp and aromative with floral, fruity notes”, said Franklin & Sons, while Manchester Gin’s “sweet flavour of raspberries balances beautifully with the citrus burst of Sicilian lemons”.
They marked “a symbol of our ongoing commitment to support and work with craft gins, providing consumers with the perfect G&T serve”, said Franklin & Sons marketing director Jen Draper.
Owner Global Brands did not confirm an rsp or whether any major listings had yet been secured.
Franklin & Sons, which is owned by VK owner Global Brands, previously teamed up with Portobello Road Gin to launch a 5.5% abv G&T into Tesco earlier this year at £2.50/250ml.
