Craft soft drinks brand Dalston’s has added three new flavours to its drinks range along with the launch of a new pack design.
The brand now offers Fizzy Elderflower, Cherryade and Ginger Beer varinats. All three products are made using British spring water and a balanced amount of beet sugar.
Dan Broughton, MD of Dalston’s said: “Our 2017 cans’ launch was a real hit; we ended up selling over 600,000 units, which was our most successful launch ever! Thanks to this and some major retail distribution wins, a start-up with a small East London brew yard is making the leap into being a credible national player.
”Combined with our significantly increased production capacity, this brilliant new trio will help us keep up with the huge consumer demand for better soft drinks. They also continue our commitment to real change in this market - avoiding artificial sweeteners, never compromising on taste and always using ‘real’ ingredients. Whether its Nigerian kola nuts or Sicilian blood orange extract, we’re only interested in the best that’s out there.”
Dalston’s has also revamped its packaging which now features a more striking design to better reflect the new ‘punchy’ flavours.
Broughton added: “In the same way that craft beer has exploded in popularity over the past few years, we’re now witnessing a sustained rise in demand for more honest, additive-free and better-tasting soft drinks. Also, as consumers are embracing alcohol-free alternatives at home and on nights out, they’re looking for more exciting soft drinks than the usual sugar-heavy suspects.”
Dalston’s new craft soft drinks are now available to independent retailers and sold in 330ml cans (rrp £1.09).
