Magners Orchard Berries - 500ml bottle shotMagners, the premium Irish Cider brand, has unveiled a fresh new look and bottle size for its popular Orchard Berries flavour – a clear 500ml bottle which shows the juicy red colour inside, packed with ripe strawberries, tangy raspberries and zesty blackcurrants.

Previously named Magners Berry, the new-look Magners Orchard Berries is perfect for hot summer days, with a popular fruity taste and attractive bottle size; it’s an ideal accompaniment for picnics and parties with friends.

Offering an additional twist on the classic serve, Magners’ expert mixologists have created a range of fresh and exciting cocktails using the Orchard Berries product to coincide with the launch of the new look bottle. Perfectly pairing the zesty flavour, the team have built a collection of deliciously refreshing drinks to highlight the fresh, fruity tones of the classic liquid.

Accessible and easy to create from home, the cocktails are designed in three mouth-watering variations – Orchard Berries Blossom, Orchard Berries Royal and Very Merry Berries.

Karen Crowley, Brands Marketing Manager for Magners, said:

“Flavoured cider has boomed in the UK, since we first launched our berry variant in 2012. Our new look Orchard Berries combines the original unique recipe with a stylish fresh design to appeal to the product’s growing fan base.

“Backed with a delicious collection of cocktail recipes, targeted towards new and current cider lovers, Magners Orchard Berries is the perfect summer drink, best served straight and over ice or with an additional fruity twist.”
