A Widnes pub has announced that it will be serving a new Parma Violet flavoured cider to customers.

The brand new flavour from cider brand, Brothers, will be available at the Observatory Hungry Horse pub on Queensbury Way as well as 1,000 other Greene King pubs across the UK, for the next two months.

Calum Cameron, senior drinks category manager at Greene King, said: "The trend for flavoured cider is huge at the moment, which is why we worked with Brothers to create this new cider.

"We’re really excited to launch Brothers Parma Violet Cider exclusively across our pubs, including the Observatory in Widnes.

"Brothers are known for their array of different flavoured drinks and this one is no exception, we’re sure guests who visit the Observatory will love it."

The cider is sweet with a subtle hint of floral notes, best served over ice.

It is also gluten free and suitable for vegans.
