Dead Man's Fingers has announced the release of two new Tequila based offerings, a Coffee Tequila Liqueur (28% ABV) and a new RTD Margarita serve (5% ABV).

The brand's Coffee Liqueur blends quality Tequila with flavours of bittersweet coffee, best enjoyed over ice, as a shot or mixed up in an indulgent cocktail such as an Espresso Martini, while the new RTD variant is made using Dead Man’s Fingers Tequila Reposado.

Dead Man's Fingers marketing director Rachel Adams said: “Originally the non-conformist rum of choice, Dead Man’s Fingers has recently leant its disruptive style to relevant new categories, injecting excitement and recruiting a new generation of consumers. The launch of our latest Tequila based products are no exception.

“We know the liqueur category continues to perform well, whilst coffee flavours are also in high demand amongst consumers, so we’re confident our Coffee Tequila Liqueur will prove popular with spirits drinkers.

"Likewise, RTDs continue to see good traction, we’ve seen great success with the initial launch of our RTD trio - Spiced Rum & Cola, Spiced Rum & Ginger, Passion Fruit Rum & Lemonade, and are confident our new Margarita can will also be a popular choice amongst [consumers] looking for a great quality cocktail at very accessible price point”.

Both products are available now from the Drop Store at RRP £22 for a 70cl of the Coffee Tequila Liqueur and RRP £24.99 for 12x330ml cans of the Margarita serve.

Kopparberg head of marketing Rob Salvesen said: “Kopparberg is famous for its fruit flavours, and our winter range has been specially crafted to deliver all the flavour Kopparberg is famous for with a cinnamon twist; whether its enjoyed warm or chilled.

“Inspired by the Northern Lights, we designed the spiced variants’ new look using rich purple and autumnal brown colours to bring a sense of warmth and cosiness while standing out from the full range as a special seasonal treat.”

Alongside the new offering, the brand's Spiced Apple Cider (4% ABV) will also be available throughout winter from Asda at RRP £2.20 per 500ml bottle.

The Yorkshire based brewery's latest offering is a sessionable 3.8% ABV fruity extra pale ale with a light malt base, brewed with a blend of new world hops and combining flavours of fresh citrus with pithy grapefruit alongside a bitter finish. 

Black Sheep Brewery head of marketing Jack Scott Paul said: “What better way to continue our 30th​ birthday celebrations than by launching a new cask beer to beat the dark days of November.

“Whether it’s your first cask beer or you’re an aficionado, at Black Sheep Brewery we truly believe there is a pint of cask for everyone, and we hope Sprinter’s refreshing flavour will be a hit with punters this November”.

Cotswolds Distillery launches new flavoured gin

The Cotswolds Distillery has launched its latest gin expression, Cotswolds Hedgerow Gin.

Inspired by the fruit and flora found in the British hedgerows in late summer and early autumn, the brand's latest variant is made from the juices of sloe, damson, blackberry, plum and elderberry, layered over award-winning Cotswolds Dry Gin.

Cotswolds Distillery founder and CEO Dan Szor said: “We are thrilled to introduce Cotswolds Hedgerow Gin to our customers and to share a part of our beautiful Cotswolds countryside with the wider public.

"Steeped in flavour, it is the perfect edition to the Cotswolds Gin range moving into the season of mellow fruitfulness.”

Cotswolds Hedgerow Gin (40% ABV), is available now in 70cl bottle format from Master of Malt at RRP £34.95.

Innis & Gunn expands Vanishing Point portfolio 


Innis & Gunn has unveiled Vanishing Point 06, an 11% ABV imperial stout, brewed in collaboration with single malt Scotch whisky brand, the Glenlivet.

The latest in Innis & Gunn’s annual Vanishing Point series, which is now in its sixth year, ‘Vanishing Point 06’ has been matured in oak casks that previously held Glenlivet 18-year-old whisky.

During its 365 days of maturation in the Glenlivet casks, the stout takes on characteristics of the whisky left behind in the oak, which harmonise with hints of dark chocolate and caramel from the beer.

Jet black in colour, the beer, of which just 1,500 bottles will be available, offers an almost spicy yet balanced flavour, with notes of honeycomb toffee and vanilla.

Vanishing Point 06 will be availble in exclusive gift cartons from Friday 11 November in 500ml bottle format at RRP £15 via the Innis & Gunn webshop.

Innis & Gunn founder and master brewer Dougal Gunn Sharp: “Our first edition of Vanishing Point was in 2016 and since then each annual release of the beer has been an evolution of the last.

“A ‘Vanishing Point’ is something always slightly beyond reach and this name perfectly fits this beer and our quest for continual progression in brewing, evolving year by year.

“Collaborating with the Glenlivet to mature this beer in their rare 18-year-old whisky casks has taken Vanishing Point 06 to another level, introducing flavours and complexity only a whisky skilfully matured in this way could have left in the casks.”

Salcombe Distilling Co announces first commercial rum


Multi award-winning distillery, Salcombe Distilling Co., has expanded its portfolio with the release of Island Street.

A blend of single estate gold rum produced in Salcombe, Devon, and exotic rums and spices from the Caribbean, Island Street offers notes of soft brown sugar and toasted coconut alongside a hint of pineapples on the nose with mince pie mix and vanilla on the palate and a subtle floral finish.

Salcombe Distilling Co co-founder Angus Lugsdin said: “To create our luxurious Island Street spirit, we first ferment, distil and age molasses in Salcombe to produce a single estate gold rum. 

“We then blend the single estate rum with a hand-sourced, three-year-old pot distilled gold rum from Jamaica and a three-year-old column distilled rum from the Dominican Republic, along with a unique spiced pineapple distillate that we create here in Salcombe. 

“The result is a smooth spiced gold rum, of which we’re exceptionally proud.” 

Best enjoyed over ice, paired with a premium ginger ale or as a spicy twist on an old-fashioned, Island Street (40% ABV) is available now in 50cl bottles from the brand’s webshop at RRP £35.
