Red Love

Naturally red apple juice launched in UK

AG Thames recently announced the launch of Red Love, the UK’s first commercially available naturally red apple juice. The new product will be available from 16 November 2015.

Red Love is an entirely British apple juice, being exclusively produced in Kent by Biddenden Vineyards, in conjunction with AG Thames, the only company with the rights to grow the variety in the UK for commercial purposes in conjunction with East Malling Research, where the trees are planted.

Red Love is a Swiss variety which has been developed over the past 25 years by Markus Kobelt, founder of plant nursery and fruit growers Lubera. Mr Kobelt, who describes Red Love as complex and interesting; a real taste sensation, has cross-pollinated a range of red-fleshed, sweet and disease resistant apple varieties to create a naturally red skinned, red fleshed apple with a crisp and long lasting taste.

The limited edition Red Love apple juice will be available in 1litre and 250ml bottles, with a naturally red cider scheduled for release in April 2016.

The juice, which is clear not cloudy, is made using the juice pressed straight from the Red Love® apples, with no added colourants, sugars or chemicals. Also rich in healthy anthocyanins, the Red Love variety contains a higher concentration of anti-oxidants than the average white fleshed apple and a 150ml serving will also contribute towards one of your five-a-day.

Red Love apple juice will be available directly from Biddenden, in the vineyard shop and online, and from independent retailers.
