Over on Twitter, fans of the cider brand also hailed the arrival of the new addition to the family.

One fan said: "Excellent! I was wondering if there was any new flavours coming. Can't wait to try."

Guess the flavour

Teasing the news on Instagram ahead of the launch, the cider maker asked fans to guess the new flavour launch.

It posted: "We've got some exciting news to share to brighten your days... Can you guess what flavour it is?"

They added emojis of fruits including a kiwi, strawberry, cherry, peach and a watermelon slice.

However, no one guessed correctly.

But one strawberry peach flavour suggestion sounded so delicious, we reckon it could give Rekorderlig inspiration for its next launch!

The new Watermelon-Citrus will be on sale in supermarkets this month.

However, some savvy shoppers have already spotted it on the shelves of Morrisons.

It has an a RRP of £2.20 per 500ml bottle.
