Gunners Cocktails releases canned mocktailBy Alice Brooker
UK-based drinks company Gunners Cocktails has launched an iteration of its mocktail in a canned format.
Gunner Saint’s recipe dates back to 1842. The non-alcoholic cocktail was initially available as a draught solution when it launched in 2019.
Dannie McDonald, managing director of Gunners Cocktails, said: “Offering a canned version was the next logical step for us. Having a really successful draught solution, our customers wanted Gunner in a can to give them more flexibility.
“This informed our decision to design a slim line can, which is easily recycled, easily handled and stored, resulting in the perfect solution and ready for summer, as we are all delighted to see hospitality reopening across the UK.”
Made up of ‘natural ingredients’, the beverage contains ginger, bitters and a twist of lime. The RTD can also be used as an ‘alternative refreshing mixer’ for alcohol-based drinks.
The serve is presented in a slim line can, with the brand citing both the convenience and sustainability for this packaging choice.
The brand said 18% of UK adults have increased their consumption of low-and-no drinks in the past year.
Giles Fuchs, founder of Gunners Cocktails, said: “Research recently revealed that over 60% of Brits plan to spend their summer drinking cocktails and mocktails outside.
“In our recent survey, almost two-thirds of people said they intended to consume low-and-no drinks this year. We are really excited to help deliver that experience, particularly as the low-and-no market is growing exponentially.
“Gunner Saint is a truly fresh and energising drink, drawing upon a rich heritage and we’re very proud it has been made here in the UK.”
A case of 12 Gunner Saint cans are available to purchase for an RRP of £18.99 (US$26.18) from gunnerscocktails.co.uk.
