Kopparberg is launching a new pink mixed fruit gin that tastes of raspberry and blackcurrant – The Sun

GIN fans need to listen up as Kopparberg is launching a second tipple to add to its line-up and this one will taste like its mixed fruit cider.
The Swedish booze manufacturer, which is best known for its range of fruity ciders, revealed a strawberry and lime flavoured gin earlier this month.

Its latest mixed fruit version will still be infused with the same botanicals of juniper, lemon zest and coriander but it will include the new addition of raspberry and blackcurrant.
Kopparberg reckons it will go down a treat served over ice with lemonade and garnished with fresh mixed berries or with tonic garnished with cucumber and basil.
If you want to get your hands on the pink-coloured plonk it’ll be available in Asda stores from June 4 – just in time for World Gin Day on June 8.
You won’t be able to get it online at Asda. Use Asda’s store locator tool to find your nearest in the meantime.

But the new gin doesn’t come cheap – a 70cl bottle with an alcohol by volume (ABV) content of 37.5 per cent will set you back £20.
That’s the same price as Kopparberg’s strawberry and lime gin, which also comes as a 70cl bottle with a 37.5 per cent ABV.

In comparison, a 500ml bottle of its mixed fruit cider has just a 4 per cent ABV but it does cost less at £1.90 at Sainsbury’s – the cheapest price we could find across the four major supermarkets.
But you can also buy pink gin for less. Gordon’s pink gin, for example, that tastes of raspberries, strawberries and redcurrants, costs £13 at Asda for a 70cl bottle with a 37.5 per cent ABV.

While Tesco is selling a 70cl bottle of Echo Falls summer berries pink gin with a 37.5 per cent ABV for £16.
When it comes to calories, Kopparberg refused to tell us how many are in the gin compared to the cider but it’s likely the gin will be better for your waistline.
Its strawberry and lime gin contains 207 calories and 0g of sugar per 100ml so the mixed fruit gin is likely to be about the same.

Rob Salvesen, head of marketing at Kopparberg, said: “Mixed Fruit came as the next obvious choice as it is our second most-loved fruit cider flavour, and we wanted to offer gin-lovers more than just one option when it came to choosing a pink 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.
