Constellation Brands has released a range of Svedka vodka RTDs in the US.

The three-strong line-up comprises Mango Pineapple, Black Cherry Lime and Strawberry Lemonade. The 8%-abv RTDs are made with vodka, juice and sparkling water.

The launch comes three years after Constellation unveiled Svedka Spiked Premium Seltzer, a 4.5%-abv malt-based beverage that targeted female consumers. A Constellation spokesperson confirmed to Just Drinks that the alcoholic seltzers, which were a regional release in the US, are no longer available.

Constellation also owns the Corona Hard Seltzer brand, which is sold in the US. The multi-category alcohol group is involved in a legal dispute with Anheuser-Busch InBev about the Corona extension. A-B InBev, which owns Corona outside of the US, alleges Constellation breached the terms of a licensing agreement when Corona Hard Seltzer launched in January.

Constellation refutes the allegation.
