Beam Inc has launched two of its Australian RTDs in a five-litre keg format ahead of the summer events season.

The Jim Beam & Cola and Canadian Club & Dry 5-litre Party Kegs are 25cm tall and targeted at “social occasions in the high-trading summer period”, Beam's Australian subsidiary, Beam Global Australia, said late last week. They were launched on Saturday (1 September) and have an SRP of AUD54.99 (US$56.32).

Beam Global Australia brand director for Bourbon Ray Noble said they are an “alternative to a case of premium beer”.

The kegs can be stored in a fridge for 30 days after opening and need ten hours to chill, Beam said.

Last month, Pernod Ricard launched Jameson Natural Ground Raw Cola RTD in Australia and New Zealand.
