The Collective is adding a new year limited edition cherry flavour to its range of gourmet yoghurts.

The Morello cherry and kirsch variety (rrp £2.39 for a 500g tub), is a trademark innovation to create a completely unique product, available until March 2016.

Iinspired by black forest gateau, the yoghurt brings together this dish’s elements – epic dairy, sour Morello cherries and a splash of kirsch liqueur.

With only 5% fat, the yoghurt meets demand for innovative products that will provide consumers with guilt-free indulgence in the new year.

The brand’s co-founder Amelia Harvey said: “With cherry proving such a popular flavour with consumers, The Collective is excited to introduce its own take on this British favourite.

“Releasing Limited Editions in this way allows us to keep innovation at the heart of our brand, providing exciting new varieties for consumers alongside the popular flavours in our core range.”

The Collective is known for creating innovative flavours, with this limited edition its second alcoholic variety following the successful launch of its raspberry and amaretto flavour in 2013.

Like the whole of The Collective’s range, this latest creation is free from artificial colours, flavours or preservatives.

The yoghurt will be available nationwide from Waitrose, Tesco, Sainsbury’s, Ocado, Whole Foods, Booths, Asda and Nisa.
