Schweppes has expanded its products portfolio with a new beverage.

The new Schweppes Dark Ginger Ale combines the traditional and refreshing ginger ale taste to offer a bolder, darker and better flavour experience.

The new product is currently available in 2-liter bottles at several retailers in the Northeast US and New England including Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut and Rhode Island as well as in New Jersey, New York and select regions in Pennsylvania.

Schweppes is planning to offer additional package offerings in spring 2016.

Schweppes brand manager Scott Smith said: "Ginger ale is a classic and favorite beverage during the holiday season, which makes it the perfect time to introduce the new Schweppes Dark Ginger Ale,"

"Our goal is to give consumers more of what they already love by providing this refreshing option that taps into a growing flavour trend."

Schweppes’ current products portfolio includes several carbonated waters and ginger ales.
