The company's beer division, Crown Imports, said today (2 April) that distribution of the brand has been extended, following a “successful” launch in California, Nevada, Arizona, New Mexico, Texas, and Chicago in October.  The 3.5% abv drink, which comes in a 24oz can, is a mix of Modelo lager with tomato, salt and lime.

It is a variation on a 'cerveza preparada', a Mexican beer mixed with tomato juice, hot sauce and salsa.

Jim Sabia, CMO of Constellation's beer division, said the product "meets our consumers' thirst for an invigorating, authentic Chelada".

Constellation took full control of Crown Imports last year, in the wake of Anheuser-Busch InBev's $20.1bn acquisition of Mexico's Grupo Modelo.
