London-based meadery Gosnells has introduced Gosnells Low Alc, a new 0.5% ABV gluten-free sparkling mead, to its canned range.
Gosnells Low Alc is made from European honeys and contains 60 calories per 33cl can. It follows hard on the heels of canned siblings, Sour, Hopped, pink Hibiscus and Citra Sea, which launched in October 2019.
Tom Gosnell, owner of Gosnells, said: “Launching our four cans has sky rocketed us into new territory and led to export orders way in excess of anything we dreamt possible.
“The quartet of Sour, Hopped, pink Hibiscus and Citra Sea in brightly-coloured 33cl 4% ABV cans has completely separated us from the old perception of high-alcohol meads in 75cl bottles – great as some of them can be.
“The cans are part of our attempt to revolutionise the word ‘mead’ and to demonstrate the amazing range of flavours which bees of all nationalities, regions and postcodes can create.
“This is something we’ve been exploring with a series of limited releases, which demonstrate how Saffron Walden honeys are different from Biggin Hill, Finchley, or Hackney Marshes.
“Gosnells Low Alc, in its electric silver-blue can, will shake us up and reach out to those wanting big, exotically-delicious flavours, but in a low-alcohol 0.5% ABV drink.”
