To support the launch, Refresco is rolling out a marketing push until the end of the year, comprising a TV campaign spend of GBP1m (US$1.36m) as well as Social Media and influencer-led activity.

“Old Jamaica Ginger Beer is the UK’s number one, demonstrating our leading ginger-flavoured drink credentials,” said Old Jamaica’s senior commercial manager, Terri Cooper. “Drawing on our leading position, we firmly believe we have created a truly unrivalled and innovative ginger ale taste experience that supports our mission to offer tonic fans a better, all-round mixer option.”

Refresco inherited Old Jamaica almost four years ago through the acquisition of then-brand owner Cott Beverages from Cott Corp.

In July, Reed’s launched a campaign to promote its namesake ginger ale in the US that included a mobile truck delivering product samples.
