Based on Plymouth gin, Plymouth Fruit Cup (30% abv) is intended to tap into the resurgence of aperitifs in the UK and respond to “significant trends in the booming gin market”.

Serving suggestions are over ice in a wine glass or jug, mixing one part Plymouth Fruit Cup to three parts lemonade or ginger ale. Garnish with plenty of summer fruits, twists of cucumber and a sprig of mint.

Plymouth Fruit Cup will be available to the on and off-trades from summer in 6x70cl cases.
