The alcoholic sparkling water category has been rising year-on-year, forecasted to be worth £17 million in value by the end of 2022, equating to a 193% growth.

Corona has seen a sales growth of 38.7% year-on-year since 2018.

To support the launch, the beer brand has launched a nationwide marketing campaign including installing a real fruit billboard in central London.

“We’re excited to offer a new Corona beverage to those who love the brand but are looking for options outside of beer,” Corona Tropical marketing manager Liz Hemus said.

“It’s been a big year of innovation for the brand following the launch of Corona Cero in March, and we’re excited to expand our super-premium portfolio beyond beer to cater to even more consumer needs.

“Corona is renowned for its refreshing taste and quality – placing it in the perfect position to grow this category with a super-premium proposition.”
