A new lower-calorie tonic has been added to the expanding Lamb & Watt range of premium tonics from Halewood Wines & Spirits.
Launched into the on- and off-trade in 200ml bottles, Naturally Light Tonic Water is promoted not just as a more health-conscious mixer for spirits but also a “highly enjoyable” soft drink. It contains 13 calories per 100ml.
Lamb & Watt Naturally Light is the first in a line of new products for the range which already includes Original, Cucumber, Basil and Hibiscus variants. Ginger Ale is to be added in the next few months to further complement the premium portfolio.
Lamb & Watt is free from artificial flavours, preservatives and sweeteners and made with natural ingredients including mineral water from the Lake District, quinine from the cinchona tree and organic blue agave syrup.
Leanne Ware, senior marketing manager for Lamb & Watt at Halewood Wines & Spirits, said: “Lamb & Watt has performed fantastically well as the premium mixer market has grown. It has become a tonic of choice in both the on- and off-trade, particularly alongside the gin renaissance.
“Naturally Light ensures that even health-conscious consumers can enjoy the premium taste and ingredients.
“The impending launch of our Ginger Ale will see Lamb & Watt become a go-to choice when pairing with dark spirits. Our portfolio is in a strong place and our choice of botanicals is certainly enhancing the enjoyment of drinking both traditional mixed drinks and cocktails.”
