Global Brew has launched a cider to the UK market with British rock band Motörhead. 

Snaggletooth is made in Worcestershire, UK, from the juice of Dabinet, Michelin and dessert apple varieties. The cider launch marks another category addition to Motorhead's alcohol portfolio. The line-up now comprises Motörhead Shiraz, Motörhead Vodka, Motörhead Lager and Motörhead Whisky - which was released last year. 

Snaggletooth's launch follows the death of long-time Motorhead frontman Lemmy Kilmister, who passed away in December. 

The UK's cider market continues to see competition grow. Earlier this year, Magners producer C&C Group said that it planned to consolidate production from sites in Shepton Mallet (England) and Borrisoleigh (Ireland) into its manufacturing site in Clonmel, Tipperary. The company blamed an "intensely competitive" trading environment in the UK & Ireland. Last month, C&C confirmed that it had sold part of its production facilitty to Brothers Drinks Co.
