BIRD SONG

Two Birds Spirits distillery in Market

Harborough, Leicestershire, has released

Strawberry and Vanilla Gin to complement

its range of multi award-winning London

Dry, Old Tom, Cocktail and Sloe gins.

Mark Gamble, who founded the distillery

in 2013, says, "There has been a notable

increase in people asking for fruit gins

at shows and at trade level and we've

worked hard to come up with a flavour

that would appeal to gin connoisseurs,

as well as seasonal summer drinkers. As

strawberries are a British summer staple

and are grown across Leicestershire,

we started experimenting. The vanilla

subtly enhances the sweetness of the

strawberries without dominating the

classic gin botanicals. You only need a

small amount of it to taste the flavours

coming through. We're recommending

that 25ml poured over ice with a lightflavoured

tonic as the ideal way to mix

it, garnished with a fresh strawberry, a

sprig of mint and a wedge of lime. It's also

delicious topped with prosecco."

Two Birds also produces flavoured

vodkas, such as Raspberry, After Dinner

Mint and Salted Caramel are popular, and

they even do an Absinthe, but it's not 'for

the faint hearted.'

Strawberry and Vanilla Gin is available

from £13.00 for 20cl and £32 for 70cl.

LIGHT TOUCH

British made Cranes Ciders are now

available from ASDA with a range of

fruit ciders. The ciders are brewed with

the finest Wisconsin cranberries along

with apples to deliver a crisp, refreshing

drink. Founded and developed by twins

Ben and Dan Ritsema, they are naturally

light, with 30% fewer calories compared

to brand leaders. Cranes Ciders come

in Blueberries & Apples, Cranberries &

Limes and Raspberries & Pomegranates

from £2.20 a bottle. Dan Ritsema says,

"Consumer tastes are becoming more

sophisticated, with a higher demand

for quality, ethical and natural ingredient

sourcing than ever before. Our fruit ciders

fill a gap in the market for an naturally-light

cider brewed to utilise the pure sweetness

of the super-fruits. We are ecstatic to have

our drinks sold nationally in ASDA, making

Cranes Ciders available to consumers

across the UK."

Cranes has also expanded its product

portfolio with the launch of Cranes

Cranberry Gin following a consumer

vote, where followers of the brand had

the opportunity to choose the next

product line for Cranes Drinks. As a

result, Cranes Cranberry Gin is made

from premium cranberries and brewed

in Cambridgeshire in small batches. The

cranberries are complimented by the

classic gin flavour of junipers, providing

a smooth and fruity, yet deliciously sharp

taste. Made from natural ingredients, with

no added sugars or artificial flavours. It

retails at £32 at independent and national

retailers. www.drinkcranes.co.uk
