Developed in partnership with Franklin & Sons, the new bottle range is available in three sizes, 200ml, 275ml and 750ml.

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.”
