Pernod Ricard USA brand Malibu has unveiled a sparkling malt beverage, Malibu Splash.

The ready-to-drink (RTD) malt beverage is available in four different flavours, including passion fruit, strawberry, pineapple and lime.

Malibu Splash is 5% alcohol by volume (ABV) malt-based beverage.

The drink can be consumed directly from a 12-ounce slim can. It comes in easy to carry, portable and comfortable packaging.

Malibu brand director Troy Gorczyca said: “We know consumers want simple and refreshing tasting drinks for casual occasions with friends.

“And with Malibu being the #1 most talked-about rum brand in summer 2019 and seeing the healthy growth over the last few years, Malibu Splash is a great opportunity for us to bring the refreshing taste of summer that consumers love to a new, innovative product that is easy to enjoy.”

The drink is sold in a four-pack at a manufacturer suggested retail price (MSRP) of $8.99, while MSRP for a variety eight-pack is $16.99.

Gorczyca added: “We’re excited to grow our fan base with this ready-to-drink product and bring consumers everywhere a taste of summer, and, a Splash of fun.”

The drink is available for purchase at national, regional and local grocery stores and package stores in the US.

In May 2018, Malibu launched summer seasonal products in the UK.
