English cider producer H. Weston and Sons has launched its first craft cider in a can.

Caple Rd Cider, named after the road which approaches Westons site, is available now. The 5.3% abv sparkling cider uses fresh English apple juice and matured for up to 18 months in oak.

Geoff Bradman, Westons head of sales, said: “The canned craft beer category has seen huge growth over the last couple of years, yet so far no one has launched a craft cider in a can. Early feedback from our research on Caple Rd has been absolutely phenomenal from both the trade and consumers, so we are delighted to be launching it this month and bringing some genuine innovation to the market.”
