Corky's producer Global Brands has expanded its Glitter Schnapps range with the launch of a shimmering passion fruit-flavoured bottling.

Corky’s Passion Fruit Glitter Schnapps has been created to capitalise “on the growing popularity of cocktails” and is available from select on-trade venues now. Bottled at 15% abv and infused with edible glitter, Corky’s Passion Fruit joins the brand's portfolio of blueberry, raspberry, mango, apple and cherry flavours. Charlie Leaver, brand manager at Global Brands, said: "The new flavour will encourage fresh cocktail ideas for our customers, whilst providing the consumer with an added extra sparkle to a standard Passion Fruit Martini. “We know that the Corky’s consumer enjoys celebrating with cocktails and shots, and passion fruit is the on-trend, go-to flavour right now.” Corky’s brand owner Global Brands saw its turnover reach more than £50 million (US$65.9m) in the year ending 30 September 2018, after it experienced a 19.5% sales increase.
