Tonic producer Franklin & Sons has teamed up with Portobello Road Gin to create a ready-to-drink (RTD) gin and tonic in a can.

The RTD combines Franklin & Sons Natural Indian Tonic Water and Portobello Road Gin, and has an abv of 5.5%. The gin and tonic will be available in 250ml cans exclusively from select Tesco stores in London from April at an RRP of £2.50. Jen Draper, head of marketing at Franklin & Sons, commented: “This ready-to-serve format is recyclable, sustainable and sleek in design. “The can delivers a blend of two timeless London drinks brands, no gimmicks and no added anything, just gin and tonic as it should be.” Last month, Franklin & Sons owner Global Brands reported a 16% sales increase for its 2017 fiscal year, with Franklin & Sons experiencing a 281% surge in sales.
