Bulmers adds Crisp Blend

17 February, 2011

Bulmers is launching another limited edition bottled cider.

Crisp Blend follows Summer Blend and Red Apple, launched by the Heineken UK brand last year.

The company said the cider was a “blend of traditional cider apples with sharper tasting varieties”.

Brand manager Doug Cook said: “Cider continues to be a hugely popular long alcoholic drink with nearly 3 million more people drinking cider now than five years ago.

“As drinkers become more discerning in their tastes, it is important to create new interest and excitement and the Bulmers limited edition products appeal to those who are looking for something a little different, who want to widen their drinks repertoire."

Bulmers Crisp Blend will be available in 56.8cl bottles from March 7, and will be supported by through-the-line marketing activity.
