Beam Global Spirits & Wine has added a pomegranate liqueur to its DeKuyper portfolio in the US.

The company, which is the beverage arm of Fortune Brands, confirmed yesterday (5 February) that the 30-proof liqueur will initially be available in one-litre bottles in the country from next month. DeKuyper Pomegranate will eventually be available in 50ml, 750ml and one-litre bottles, with the 750ml offering retailing for around US$10.99.

"We continue to offer our consumers innovative liqueurs, schnapps and cordials to expand flavour profiles," said Amy Underwood, senior brand manager for DeKuyper. "It mixes well with spirits, juices and sparkling wines and Champagnes."

The brand will be supported by on- and off-premise merchandising, the company noted, as well as sampling and promotions.

Last month, Heaven Hill Distilleries celebrated the first birthday of its Pama Pomegranate Liqueur by unveiling three new sizes for the brand. Pama is now available in 375ml, 1-litre and 1.75-litre bottles, joining the 750ml size in the US.
