A scotch whisky distiller, when asked recently if he made any blends, was gloriously sniffy and dismissive of blended whisky. It would have been interesting to see and hear what he would have made of the Johnnie Walker Directors Blends, which I got to taste last Thursday (November 28) in London.
Malibu Caribbean Cosmo Light, which has an abv of 12.5%, is a blend of Malibu Coconut, lime, orange and cranberry.
The 1.75 litre pouch launches to the US market in July and is priced at $19.99.
McCann, brand director of Malibu at Pernod Ricard USA, said: “With consumers continuing to demand low-calorie prepared drinks, we wanted to make sure that we created a light product that tastes just as great as the rest of our flavourful line of Malibu Cocktails.”
Malibu Caribbean Cosmo Light will join the existing pre-mixed range, which comprises Tropical Sea Breeze, Tropical Mojito, Rum Punch and Melon Margarita.
