Red Bull has extended its Red Bull Special Editions to the UK.

The three flavour extensions, already available in other European countries including Germany, will launch in the UK in March, a spokesperson for the energy drinks company said today (8 October). The Red (cranberry), Silver (lime) and Blue (blueberry) variants will help bring new consumers to the energy category, the company said.

“We know that some consumers don’t buy into the category because they don’t like the taste of energy drinks,” said Red Bull's strategy & planning manager, Gavin Lissimore. “By offering them a range of new flavours, using the strength of the Red Bull brand, we will deliver against these concerns and ultimately drive penetration into the category.” 

The 25cl cans will sell for the same price as regular Red Bull, the company said.

In Germany, Red Bull has sold about 22m Special Edition units in the past six months, the company said.

In May, Red Bull said it was still waiting on government approval to enter the Chinese market.
