Bottlegreen Drinks is adding to its range of premium sparkling pressés with two new flavours: mango and coconut, and Cotswold lemonade and mint.
Tapping into consumer flavour trends, the two new lines are available in 275ml bottles which are exclusive to the on-trade and foodservice sectors.
Bottlegreen Mango & Coconut Pressé is a tropical combination of sweet mango and mild coconut water blended with lightly sparkling water, resulting in a light, balanced and refreshing soft drink.
Cotswold Lemonade & Mint Pressé is a classic combination of fine lemon juice infused with an extract of garden mint and blended with lightly sparkling Cotswold spring water to create refreshing and palate-cleansing soft drink.
Both of the new sparkling pressés use the same traditional wine-making techniques and cold-filtration process that Bottlegreen Drinks uses for its flagship elderflower cordial and sparkling pressé.
Bottlegreen Drinks’ managing director Simon Speers said: “There is undoubtedly a thirst for more interesting flavour combinations, with 46% of consumers saying they would like to see more adventurous flavours and this is something that we have been very keen to develop.
“With these two new additions we have focused on two key adult flavour trends – the growth in popularity of more exotic flavours and a ‘retro’ revival in the interest in traditional drinks such as lemonade.
“Coconut is very on trend at the moment, driven in part by the emergence of the coconut water category, and it’s a flavour which is also breaking through in other categories such as adult yogurts and ice cream.”
Bottlegreen Mango & Coconut Pressé has proved popular after being launched in 750ml bottles in the take-home sector last year.
“Mint is definitely another flavour to watch and we have paired this with lemonade to provide a contemporary twist on a traditional favourite which is being launched exclusively in the out-of-home, on-premise sector,” Simon said.
