Ed Hardy brand launches a new line of RTD Tequila Hard Seltzers
Iconix Brand Group, Inc. has partnered with licensee Luneau USA Inc. to launch a new line of Ed Hardy Flavored Sparkling Tequila, RTD, (Ready to Drink), 12 oz cans, just in time for summer. The new line will expand the Ed Hardy brand’s presence in the alcohol industry as the tattoo-influenced brand currently has a well-known assortment of wines and sangrias.
Ed Hardy Sparkling Flavored Tequila is the future of the hard seltzer industry. Brewed in Mexico, Ed Hardy Sparkling Flavored Tequila is paired with bold fruit flavors, making it a standout product in the market today. While most of the major players in the industry are producing a vodka-based product, the brand plans to separate itself from the pack with this new premium offering.
“We are thrilled to continue our successful partnership with Luneau to launch another Ed Hardy Ready To Drink beverage. The expansion comes at the right time as this category continues to rapidly grow. This is a natural progression for the brand, and we are confident this new offering will capture the attention of the Ed Hardy brand audience.” – Bob Galvin, Chief Executive Officer and President at Iconix Brand Group, Inc.
