CHICAGO, April 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Phusion Projects, LLC, the makers of Four Loko, rolled out its newest line of flavored malt beverages, Bartender Series, which combines the bold flavors of unique cocktails with graffiti-inspired cans. Bartender Series was developed to disrupt today's ready-to-drink cocktail category without sacrificing the taste or experience of a mixed drink.
Taken straight from the creations of professional bartenders from around the country, this colorful new line of mixed drink discoveries is about creating personalized experiences that are bold and unexpected. Bartender Series currently has three flavors: Blue Mofo, Purple Hooter and Pink Scorpion.
"Four Loko is synonymous with camouflage packaging," says Jenna Shklyar, Phusion Projects' Marketing VP. "With Bartender Series, we did not want to lose the bold design Four Loko is known for. Instead, we embraced it and built on it by introducing simple, yet powerful graffiti imagery. On the flavor front, collaborating with professional bartenders helped us merge the authentic experience of trying unique cocktails at a bar, with the convenience of a can. The result is that while Four Loko's Bartender Series branches out into mixed drink inspired territory, it stays true to the adventure Four Loko stands for as a brand."
Bartender Series is now available in the U.S. in 16 oz. cans. It is one product launch in a series of Phusion Projects' portfolio of new brands that will help drive continued growth in 2017. While it's still in the early days for this new product line, Bartender Series' month-to-month unit sales growth of 113.3% has significantly outpaced the 10.9% growth of the overall 16 oz. premixed cocktails segment.1
