15 January 2015
Whatever the weather, the outlook could hardly be sunnier for C&C Gleeson which as of 1 March 2015, is the exclusive distributor of the Corona Extra and Corona Light brands in the Republic of Ireland.
The arrival of the global brand is an important new addition, as Brian Beattie, marketing director of C&C Gleeson explains.
“Corona is, famously, the leading ‘Sunshine Beer’, dominating that category around the world with a fantastic track record in the UK and Ireland. This great, fresh and distinctively flavoured beer has a uniquely engaging brand personality that will complement and add a new dimension to our wide portfolio of big brand beers and ciders. Securing it for C&C Gleeson gives us a brilliant start to 2015 and reinforces still further our reputation for innovation coupled with quality.”
Brewed in Mexico since 1929, with 4.5% ABV, Corona Extra is made with the finest quality blend of filtered water, malted barley, hops, corn and yeast, balanced to deliver a smooth taste, perfectly suited to easy summer drinking. It has an unmistakable bright gold colour and its connection with the famous ‘Lime Ritual’ gives it fabulous memorability.
