HEXHAM-based Fentimans will see its supply of premium soft drinks stocked at new venues across the country.

The botanically brewed soft drinks company has announced a new, national contract with Mitchells & Butlers, and its drinks will now be available at restaurants and bar chains including Browns, Miller & Carter, All Bar One, Harvester, Toby Carvery, and 180 Vintage Inns.

Among the choices will be Fentimans’ best-selling flavours Rose Lemonade and Ginger Beer, along with its Mandarin & Seville Orange Jigger and Dandelion & Burdock.

Nigel Tarn, marketing manager at Fentimans, said: “We’re so excited to be working with Mitchells & Butlers to offer a taste of the iconic Fentimans flavours to diners across the country.

“We know from research in Fentimans 2022 Market Trends Report that an increasing number of consumers are opting for no and low drinks options, as the effects of the pandemic continue to shine a light on physical health. In fact, nearly a third said they would drink less or no alcohol in venues post-lockdown. Therefore, it’s vital that venues stock a range of adult soft drink options to cater to this trend.

“Mitchells & Butlers’ pride themselves on quality, which is at the heart of what we do and brew at Fentimans and why we believe Fentimans is the perfect partner across their estate, so we are delighted to be a part of their drinks menu across 14 of their brands.”
