Constellation Brands has given an official launch to Corona Refresca, the Corona brand's first flavoured malt beverage (FMB).

Refresca will initially roll out in selected US markets in three flavours - Passionfruit Lime, Guava Lime and Coconut Lime. A nation-wide launch is scheduled for early May.

Guava Lime and Passionfruit Lime will each be available in six-packs for an SRP of US$9.99. A 12-pack that includes all three flavors will be available for $16.99.

Corona Refresca was sent to test markets in the US last Spring as Constellation Brands explored the non-beer category. At the same time, the company unveiled a Svedka Spiked Premium Seltzer, which was given a full launch in June.

Both products sit in the alternative beverage alcohol (ABA) space, which then-CEO Rob Sands said last year can be "incremental to the beer category".

Constellation has launched a number of innovations for the Corona brand, which it owns the rights to in the US. Anheuser-Busch InBev controls the Mexican brand in all other markets.

Last year, Constellation launched the low-carb Corona extension Premier to the US and has already hailed it as a success. In November, Constellation's CMO James Sabia said the company had spent about US$35m on the introduction of Premier.
