Dunkin’ Donuts to introduce alcoholic teas and coffees

Dunkin’ Donuts is planning to launch a range of alcoholic ‘spiked’ iced teas and coffees, according to Vinepair.
The US doughnut and coffee chain has registered to launch an alcoholic range of iced teas and coffees.

The four flavours of iced coffee that will reportedly become available include: Original, Caramel, Mocha, and Vanilla.

The new alcoholic coffee drinks, named ‘Dunkin’ Spiked’ are due to have a 6% ABV and will be available in a combined ‘Dunkin’ Spiked Coffee Mix Pack’. However, the Original will be the only iced coffee variant that can be bought as both a four-pack of 12-ounce cans or a 19.2-ounce single-serve can.

Alongside the alcoholic coffee range, a portfolio of 5% ABV iced teas are also reported to be soon available at Dunkin’. These will include: lightly Sweet, Half & Half, Strawberry Dragonfruit, and Mango Pineapple.

There is no known release date for the new spiked teas and coffees, but according to Vinepair, the drinks labels were approved by the Alcohol and Tobacco Tax and Trade Bureau (TTB) back in May.

There are eight expressions listed on the Dunkin’ Spiked website, but only five have received label approval so far. These are: Original Iced Coffee, Vanilla Iced Coffee, Slightly Sweet Iced Tea, Strawberry Dragonfruit Iced Tea Refresher, and Mango Pineapple Iced Tea Refresher.

Two years ago, Dunkin’ launched three beers in collaboration with fellow Massachusetts brand Harpoon Brewery.
