Kopparberg delights fans by launching new ‘crisp and warming’ Pear Gin

It's the perfect autumn tipple

| Updated:

Kopparberg has launched a new flavoured gin and it’s perfect for nostalgia fans.

The fruity new gin – which goes on sale today (October 7) – takes its inspiration from the “undeniably recognisable” flavour of the brand’s Pear Cider.

Kopparberg said it “kick-started the fruit cider revolution” back in 1999 with its “iconic” Pear Cider.

And now it’s had something of a botanical makeover, with the brand launching its first-ever limited-edition Pear Gin.

“The new, limited-edition gin gives us the ultimate throwback, with the undeniably recognisable famous flavours of Kopparberg’s Pear Cider, but with a refreshing twist,” said a rep.

The new gin bursts with the same crisp pear flavour that made its fruit cider famous 20 years ago.

Best served over ice with lemonade and a slice of pear, Kopparberg said it’ll be releasing Pear Gin cocktail combinations soon, so watch this space!

Perfect for autumnal evenings, Kopparberg said the “punchy” new gin is a “”crisp and warming spirit” that Brits will find hard to resist.

“Pear Gin sounds nice about now,” said one soon-to-be fan on Instagram.

Kopparberg Pear Gin is here for a limited time only and we expect it to be hugely popular this season, so make sure you grab a bottle whilst it’s still on shelves.

Kopparberg’s Rob Salvesen said: “When we launched Kopparberg Pear Cider back in 1999, it completely transformed the way drinkers enjoyed cider and revolutionised the cider market in the UK as we know it.
