Haywood Products has added classic shot cocktail B52 to the Shatler’s range of ready-to-drink cocktails available in the UK.
Delivered as a 20ml shot, it is a mix of coffee liqueur, cream whiskey liqueur and rum, designed to be served straight from its bottle.
It is the first single-shot size cocktail that Haywood Drinks has introduced from Shatler’s which features ready-to-drink cocktails from a Caipirinha and Tequila Sunrise to a Pina Colada and a Mai Tai.
With aromas of chocolate and raisins on top of the coffee, rum and cream whiskey, the B52 has 29.9% ABV. It comes in packs of six 20ml bottles or in a half-litre bottle, with a shelf life of 12 months.
Fraser Henderson, managing director of Haywood Products, said: “The expansion of our RTD drinks listing further demonstrates the growing trend of premises being able to offer cocktails within seconds without the expensive overheads of purchasing all ingredients.
“All of our RTD cocktails are mixologist perfected so further removes the need for mixologist training and for the customer they get their drink served to them in minimal time, perfect time and time again.”
Haywood Products is stepping up distribution in the on-trade after agreeing the purchase of the stock and business assets of leading snack supplier Cosgrove’s Foods.
Kevin Cosgrove, the owner and managing director of Cosgrove’s Foods, is joining Haywood Products as general manager of the company’s new van sales division.
The deal will bring new products to Haywood Products’ portfolio including kilner jar nuts, cocktail lemon slices, Brown Bag Crisps, Sun Valley Bar Pots and Riccos Nachos.
