The new Franklin & Sons soft drinks and mixers include traditional British beverages with a Franklin & Sons twist.

The range features Sicilian Lemonade and English Elderflower with crushed juniper and British Dandelion and Handpicked Burdock with star anise flavour.

Franklin & Sons group managing director Mark James said: “Our refined tonics & mixers range has been created as the perfect partner for premium spirits, both in taste and appearance.

“These sit beautifully beside the soft drinks range, which honours the heritage and provenance of the brand.

“The Encirc bottles, inspired by the original Franklin & Sons bottle designs give our award-winning products a sophisticated appearance, taking inspiration from the brand’s heritage while at the same delivering a contemporary look and feel.”

Formed in 1886, the company currently distributes its products across the UK.

"Our refined tonics & mixers range has been created as the perfect partner for premium spirits, both in taste and appearance."

Encirc Glass sales and marketing director Rob Turvey said: “Our product design team worked with Franklin & Sons to create the range of aesthetically pleasing bespoke glass bottles that took cues from and reinforced the brands’ strong heritage, authenticity credentials and premium nature.

“Consumer tastes are changing and more people are looking for high-end alternatives to traditional beverages.

“Glass bottles are an ideal packaging material for these new mixers and soft drinks, and will give Franklin & Sons’ consumers a memorable drinking experience.”
