In July, Coca-Cola announced its plans to release a hard seltzer under its popular mineral water brand Topo Chico. On Tuesday, the beverage company released more information behind the Topo Chico Hard Seltzer release, announcing a partnership with Molson Coors.
The beer company will handle the launch of Topo Chico’s spiked seltzer, expected to hit U.S. shelves in early 2021.
“Molson Coors Beverage Company has entered into an exclusive agreement with The Coca-Cola Company to manufacture, market, and distribute Topo Chico Hard Seltzer in the U.S.,” a press release from the company states, “taking another big step in its plan to aggressively grow the company’s above premium portfolio and become a major competitor in the fast-growing hard seltzer segment.”
The new announcement also confirmed three flavors in addition to the “Tangy Lemon Lime” pictured in the initial press release in July. The additional flavors are: Exotic Pineapple, Strawberry Guava, and Tropical Mango. Each can will clock in at 4.7 percent ABV.
The initial debut will prioritize markets “where Topo Chico sparkling mineral water is known and loved,” the release states. (Think: Texas.) The new boozy seltzer will be the third in the Molson Coors portfolio, which already includes Vizzy and Coors Seltzer.
Fans who are looking to get their hands on Topo Chico Hard Seltzer will have to wait until some time next year. In the meantime, mixing up a simple Ranch Water might be the best indication of what to expect.
