Manly Spirits Co Distillery has launched its first ready-to-drink (RTD) craft gin and tonics, designed with low alcohol content and low calories.

The new range has two variations – Manly Spirits Gin & Tonic with Australian Dry Gin and Manly Spirits Pink Gin & Tonic with Lilly Pilly Pink Gin – and is available in 275ml glass bottles, manufactured by O-I Glass.

“The Manly Spirits Pink G&T also has the added benefit of having zero sugar and low calories for the health-conscious consumer. We like to call it a guilt-free G&T.”

“We know people love our beautifully crafted bespoke 700ml spirit bottles, so we didn’t want to compromise when it came to designing and sourcing the bottles for our Gin & Tonics. We wanted to make sure they felt just as nice to drink from and to display – and that’s what we did,” said Manly Spirits co-founder Vanessa Wilton.

The RTD range leans towards the mindful drinking trend, with the range crafted to be one standard drink per bottle.

Both RTD varieties are available in four-packs for RRP $28.00.

In its annual report on consumer trends Euromonitor International says sustainability, convenience and a new “phygital reality” are three developments that will influence business strategies.

The next interpack will take place from 4 to 10 May 2023, at the Düsseldorf Trade Fair Centre. It will be the first show since 2017, with last year’s expo first postponed, then cancelled, due to Covid.

Companies wanting to show their packaging and print wares to the world can now register for online event virtual.drupa, which is set to take place 20-23 April, in place of the now cancelled mega-show.
