The Coca-Cola Co has lined up a flavoured variant of its Dasani bottled water brand in the US.

The company confirmed yesterday (23 April) that it will roll out Dasani Essence across the country in the coming weeks. The brand extension consists of three flavours: Lime, strawberry kiwi and black cherry.

"Water drinkers will find Dasani Essence has a much lighter and more natural taste than other flavoured products," said Brandon Leck, director of Coca-Cola North America Water Brands. "Unlike highly sweetened and more intensely flavoured beverages, Dasani Essence offers the healthful purity of water with a splash of all-natural fruit flavour."

Dasani Essence will be packaged in recyclable 18.5oz. single PET bottles and 16oz. four-packs.
