Jack Daniel’s and Coca-Cola have launched of Jack Daniel’s and Coca-Cola ready-to-drink (RTD) in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
Made with Jack Daniel’s Tennessee Whiskey and Coca-Cola, the new product was inspired by the classic bar cocktail known and enjoyed around the world.
Last year, Jack Daniel’s and Coca-Cola announced that they would be teaming up to provide fans with the option to enjoy the drink inspired by one of the world’s most popular branded “bar calls” – a cocktail ordered with specific brand names – in a convenient, ready-to-drink format.
The product resulting from this global agreement between the two iconic brands will hit shelves in Ireland and Northern Ireland, alongside other markets in Europe – before expanding to other global markets in Latin America and Asia throughout 2023. The product debuted in Mexico in November 2022.
The packaging boldly integrates iconic qualities of both brands – the red Coca-Cola logo written in its classic Spencerian script, combined with the elegant, black Jack Daniel’s Old No. 7 design – emphasising that the Jack Daniel’s and Coca-Cola RTD is born ready to be the best because of its quality ingredients. The can and packaging, which features two of the world’s most recognisable and valuable trademarks in “Coca-Cola” and “Jack Daniel’s”, will include clear responsibility messaging stating that the beverage is to be enjoyed responsibly and only by consumers of legal drinking age.
Johnny Scott, coffee & premium spirits business director, Coca-Cola HBC Ireland and Northern Ireland, said: “Jack Daniel’s and Coca-Cola is a number one bar call in the world and now, we are delighted to be able to bring it to consumers in a new ready-to-drink offering.”
“Jack Daniel’s and Coca-Cola RTD was born ready to be a fan-favourite, boldly bringing our flavours together to form this iconic pairing,” said Nikos Koumettis, president Europe OU, at The Coca-Cola Company. “Both of our brands are inspired by our fans’ endless innovation in mixing the best, to get the best, and we can’t wait for them to give this a try.”
A Coca-Cola Zero Sugar version will also be available in Ireland and Northern Ireland.
