KC Max launches cider-caffeine mix

KC Max launches cider-caffeine mix

A cider with caffeine is being launched in the UK this month, to tap into the 40% of cider drinkers who are also regular consumers of energy drinks. KC Max has been created by UK distributor KC Brands and consists of a blend of 4.7% ABV Belgian cider made in the renowned Limburg region, and 12mg of caffeine per litre. The cider is packaged in 275ml bottles and will retail through wholesalers for around £9.99 for a case of 12. KC Brands CEO Mark Todd said the label had been run past the Portman Group already and had been given the thumbs-up. “This product is aimed at the many consumers who drink both caffeine and cider, which we believe equates to a potential market worth £800m,” Todd said. “It is a contemporary product, which reflects modern drinking habits.” [...more]

Halewood Launches New Soft Drink For Men

Halewood Launches New Soft Drink For Men

Halewood International is to follow up its successful launch of Crabbie’s Alcoholic Ginger Beer with a new soft drink for men. Iron Press, a fruit juice based drink made with malt and barley, which looks like a beer, complete with frothy head, is being launched this month. It is aimed at blokes between 25 and 55 years-old. The new brand will be the company’s biggest launch in 2010 and was inspired by the growth of the soft drinks category in the on-trade and products such as McCoy’s “man crisps,” Yorkie bars and Lynx. “At the moment the soft drinks category is very female orientated,” said head of innovation Richard Clark. “Yet there is a growing number of men who want to go to the pub with friends or family but who do not always want to drink alcohol. Iron Press gives them an alternative to a pint of coke or lime & soda.” [...more]

Ballantine’s brand Ambassador wins US Open golf

Ballantine’s brand Ambassador wins US Open golf

Graeme McDowell, the Northern Ireland golfer who won the US Open golf tournament last weekend, is a global ambassador for Ballantine’s, the world’s number two scotch whisky. Having held off the likes of Tiger Woods, Phil Mickleson and Ernie Els, McDowell is said to be celebrating with a bottle of rare Ballantine’s Championship Blend which he co-created with Ballantine’s master blender, Sandy Hyslop. McDowell said: “Ballantine’s has always been a lucky charm for me and since my 2008 Ballantine’s Championship win in Korea I’ve played some of the best golf of my life. I said I would open my very special bottle of The Ballantine’s Championship Blend either on the birth of my first child, or my first major win – Pebble Beach came first.” McDowell is the first European in 40 years to win the US Open. While McDowell wears the Pernod Ricard brand logo on his left sleeve, he has also represented Ballantine’s at many events since winning The Ballantine’s Championship title in Korea in 2008. These include becoming the first person ever to collaborate with a Ballantine’s master blender on the creation of the 2009 Championship Blend and the launch of the 2010 Championship Blend, which celebrated 50 years since Ballantine’s was first involved with international golf.
