Franklin & Sons extends canned G&T range

by Owen Bellwood

Tonic water manufacturer Franklin & Sons has expanded its range of ready-to-drink (RTD) gin and tonics with the launch of two new canned variants.

Franklin & Sons has partnered with Caorunn Gin and Manchester Gin to create the two RTDs, which combine each gin with tonics from the brand’s portfolio. Caorunn Gin has been paired with Franklin & Sons Natural Indian Tonic Water, while Manchester Raspberry Infused Gin has been paired with the brand's Sicilian Lemon Tonic Water. Seb Heeley, co-founder and master distiller at Manchester Gin, said: “We have been working with Franklin & Sons for a number of years, so when the opportunity came up to collaboratively work together so people could enjoy a delicious Manchester Raspberry Infused Gin and Tonic on the move, we jumped at the chance." The Canned Caorunn G&T has an abv of 6%, while the Manchester Gin expression has an abv of 5.5%. Both RTDs are available in 250ml cans from select retailers. Jen Draper, marketing director at Franklin & Sons, said: “We are extremely excited to add these two premium crafted gin and tonic RTS [ready-to-serve] cans to the growing Franklin & Sons portfolio. They are a symbol of our on-going commitment to support and work with craft gins, providing consumers with the perfect G&T serve. "We worked painstakingly to deliver a superior G&T taste experience delivering all the notes and flavours discerning consumers would expect.”
