Kopparberg now does PINK GIN and it tastes of lime and strawberry

KOPPARBERG has combined its famous strawberry and lime flavour with one of the nation’s favourite drinks – gin!

That’s right, you heard us, the Swedish cider company has branched away from fruity cider to give us even fruitier gin.

Distilled for pink gin enthusiasts, the drink is infused with the flavours that made Kopparberg famous and the best part is, you won’t have to wait too long to try it.

The London-dry style gin will be available from May 6 at over 700 Greene King pubs across the UK.

It’ll then roll out in Asda and Morrisons from May 22, where it’ll set you back £22 for a 70cl bottle.

It comes with an alcohol by volume (ABV) of 37.5 per cent, compared to only 4 per cent in its cider.

The best price of the cider among the UK’s major supermarkets is currently offered by Sainsbury’s, where a 50cl bottle will set you back £1.90.

Rob Salvesen, from Kopparberg, said: “We are extremely excited to be bringing our new Premium Gin to the UK.

“Kopparberg is famous for flavour and we’ve worked hard to create a pink gin in the iconic Kopparberg flavour of strawberry and lime, that we know the nation loves.

“We look forward to seeing pink gin fans across the country spend many sunsets making memories with friends this summer with a glass of Kopparberg Premium Gin.”

In the last ten years sales of gin – affectionately known as Mother’s Ruin – have tripled.

Drinkers spent £461million on gin last year, up by 32.5 per cent on the year, according to the Office for National Statistics.

The rise in popularity has meant thousands of different flavours have been created, including Rhubarb and Rhosehip and even a glittery pink unicorn gin that tastes of marshmallows.
