NORWAY: Carlsberg launches Baltika in Norway
Bottles of Baltika No.7 Export beer have been launched in Norway's bars and restaurants, following successful trials in the country, Baltika Breweries said today (10 August).
One 0.33-litre bottle will cost NOK60 (US$9.8), said Baltika, which is a subsidiary of Baltic Beverages Holding, the Eastern Europe-based beer unit wholly owned by Carlsberg.
Baltika No.7 cannot legally be sold in shops in Norway, because its 5.4% abv is over the Government's 4.7% limit for beer in the off-trade.
The beer is being distributed in the country by Ringnes, also controlled by Carlsberg.
Last week, Carlsberg cut beer consumption forecasts for Russia and sought to calm fears of a tax rise on beer in the country.
