Although the UK's gin trend is showing no sign of slowing down, Tony Conigliaro, drinks expert at Schweppes, describes how the brand's new 1783 range responds to the growing popularity of alternative spirits, like whisky, rum, and tequila - with some really exciting new flavours to take your cocktails to the next level.
"It's Schweppes' long-lasting bubbles that set it apart from other mixers, and ensures it's the perfect engine to carry the taste, flavour, and aroma of the spirit it is mixed with."
With up to 6 innovative new flavour combinations and spirit pairings, Schweppes 1783 ensures there is something to please even the most discerning cocktail connoisseur.
This whole range marks a new chapter in Schweppes's 234-year history, with the new skittle-style bottle providing a "premium exterior". The bottle is modelled on the original Schweppes skittle, which was blown and formed in a single piece by inventor Jacob Schweppe in 1783.
