Heineken Introduces Tequila-Flavored Beer in USA

In a recent press release, Heineken announced that their popular Desperados Tequila-Flavored Beer, will finally become available to American consumers.

The "One-Of-A-Kind Beer, Blended with Tequila Barrel Aged Lager" was first introduced in France, in 1995. And according to its maker, the brand has delivered double digit growth year on year.

Desperados will first launch in FL, GA, AL, TN & NC with more sates soon to come.

Heineken said that the launch will include a fully integrated marketing program focused on "millennial consumers", that includes TV, Out-of-Home and digital advertising to raise awareness of their flavored brew.

Desperados is brewed to appeal to young adult consumers (LDA+) who are spontaneous, adventurous and whose drink choices reflect who they are. Independent consumer research confirms that Desperados performs extremely well with the target audience, exceeding category norms for purchase intent, excitement and likability, driven by its great taste, unique style and dynamic packaging.
