Just like the flavours inside, Desperados Alcoholic Sparkling Water is created for those with a zest for life, making it an ideal drink for a generation of consumers chasing excitement around every corner.
Rutger van der Stegen, Global Marketing Manager for Desperados, said: “With playful experimentation at Desperados’ heart, we are excited to introduce a new innovation to ignite the tastebuds of those who crave the extraordinary in life. We created Desperados Alcoholic Sparkling Water in response to the evolving drinking habits of consumers who are looking for a fruity-yet-fresh beer alternative for any occasion. It is designed to sit alongside our wider product line, giving consumers the choice whether to enjoy an alcohol-free Desperados Virgin 0.0, Desperados Original or Desperados Alcoholic Sparkling Water.”
Desperados Alcoholic Sparkling Water is aimed at the modern generation of consumers who are increasingly conscious of their consumption habits and lifestyle choices, whilst also wanting to go for it in life. The zesty alcoholic alternative will initially be available in the Netherlands in one flavour, Lime Twist, with more exciting flavours joining the party in the future.
