17 September, 2010

Halewood International is to extend its Crabbie’s brand this Christmas with the launch of Crabbie’s Ginger Mulled Wine.

It will be available in both the off and on-trade and Halewood said the launch was a bid to “remain at the forefront of innovation in the ginger category”, following its success with Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer.

The new product is made from a combination of “quality ruby wine, ginger, cinnamon, cloves and citrus fruits”.

It will be available in a 70cl glass bottle with an abv of 12% (rrp £4.99).

Richard Clark, head of innovation at Halewood International, said: “In the run-up to the festive season both the off and on-trades are looking for credible branded products that will offer retailers the opportunity to make significant incremental sales.”?The launch will be supported by a national above-the-line campaign, sampling and in-outlet support.
