Containing 25ml of real Irish whiskey in each 500ml bottle, the 5.5 per cent ABV Magners with Irish Whiskey will be available to the on-trade in March.
According to C&C, consumer demand for innovation in the cider category is high, and the spirits and cider combination is becoming increasingly popular. Last year, SHS Drinks – which sells Orwell’s Amaretto Cider – estimated that the category would be worth £50m by 2018.
Why you should buy it:
Ed Shoebridge, head of customer marketing at C&C Group, said: “Magners has been at the forefront of cider innovations since it revolutionised the cider category in the 90s with its over-ice serve, and today we are introducing another game changer.
“Consumers’ appetite for new flavours in cider keeps growing and we believe our new Magners with Irish Whiskey will offer a unique flavour both for whisky lovers and cider lovers looking for something new.”
