Dr Pepper Snapple Group launched Schweppes Dark Ginger Ale in Canada last year

Dr Pepper Snapple Group is to expand the distribution of its Schweppes Dark Ginger Ale to the US. 

The company launched the product in Canada last December. DPSG said at the time that the variant was created to provide consumers with a "darker and richer flavour experience".

Two-litre bottles of Schweppes Dark Ginger Ale will initially be available in north-eastern states, including New England (Maine, Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut and Rhode Island) as well as in New Jersey, New York and selected regions in Pennsylvania. Additional pack formats are to roll out in the Spring.

Scott Smith, brand manager for Schweppes said the product "taps into a growing flavour trend". 

In October, Dr Pepper Snapple raised its full-year guidance on the back of a healthy third quarter.
