Gaymer Cider Co, the division of Constellation Europe, has relaunched its premium cider portfolio in the UK.

The company, which last month relaunched the Blackthorn cider brand in the country, said today (29 April) that Addlestones and Gaymer's Orchard Reserve are now available in redesigned 500ml bottles. The two revamped brands, along with the Gaymer's County Series, make up the unit's premium cider offering.

Gaymer's Orchard Reserve, two single-orchard, vintage ciders, will switch from a 750ml wine-style bottle to a 500ml bottle with premium packaging. The bottles will carry a 'Premium Gaymer's Collection' emblem which will also be seen on Gaymer's County Series, which launched early last year.

"Our research indicates that growth in premium ciders is set to continue at a high level," said Peter Spencer, MD of Gaymer Cider Co. "This premium range will support this growth and further cement Gaymer Cider Company's position as the cider expert, with a wide range of quality ciders to suit all consumer needs."

Addlestones 500ml is 5% ABV and available from Waitrose at an RRP of GBP1.75. Gaymer's Orchard Reserve 500ml is 6.8% and available from Asda at GBP1.69. Launched last April, Gaymer's County Series 500ml is 5.8% ABV and available from Waitrose, Morrisons and Tesco from GBP1.69.
