The supplier hopes to target gen z and millennial shoppers by tapping into their preferences for flavours, following the success of its 2021 Pink Grapefruit and Honeycomb launches.

It hopes to also capitalise on upcoming celebratory occasions such as the Queen’s Jubilee and the return of Glastonbury Festival.

Nicola Randall, senior marketing manager at Brothers, said: “We are well-known for our exciting and innovative flavours, therefore we are confident that Cherry Bakewell is the perfect addition to our portfolio and one that will continue our momentum as the fastest-growing flavoured cider brand in the market.”
