UK-based drinks company Marlish Waters has launched a new 150ml can format for its tonics and mixers beverage range.
Available from mid-June, the new glass-free aluminium format launch will focus on four of the Northumberland-based brand’s most popular SKUs – English Tonic Water, Premium Lemonade, Ginger Ale and Soda Water.
The beverages will be supported by a range of launch offers and promotions with partner wholesalers over the summer season.
Marlish Waters co-founder and director Joe Evans commented: “Aluminium cans are infinitely recyclable and both cheaper and easier to recycle than glass. Cans also take less time to chill down in a fridge, requiring less energy to do so. Research has also shown that 150mls is the perfect quantity for a single-serve spirit and mixer, meaning no leftover mixer going to waste.
“If you then add in that fact that we have our own on-site canning line, powered by renewable energy, canning our tonics and mixers range really was a no brainer!”
Packaging Gateway reports that aluminium cans are popular in the beverage sector owing to their hermetic seal and barrier against oxygen and sunlight.
