The ad features Strongbow's trademark arrow

Heineken has launched a new TV advertising campaign in support of its latest cider brand in the UK.

The 30-second spot for Strongbow Pear will appear on screens nationwide from next Friday, Heineken said today (17 August). The ad will run for 12 weeks.

Heineken launched Strongbow Pear last month. The 4.8% abv cider is available on draught in the UK on-trade, and in 33cl bottles and 44cl cans in the off-trade.

“The launch advertisement will drive awareness of Strongbow Pear among our target audience of more than 4.7m 18- to 34-year-old men, who will see the ad in this initial burst,” said Heineken on-trade MD Lawson Mounstevens.

The ad shows a man shooting Strongbow's trademark arrow at a pear in the desert.
