Nigeria’s fast-paced ready-to- drink (RTD) market, especially in the alcoholic category, is witnessing a new twist with the launch of Bacardi Breezers, an alcoholic cocktail, which exists in over 100 countries. RTDs are beverages sold in prepared form, ready for consumption and Bacardi Breezers will now join Smirnoff in that category. Taking advantage of the country’s huge market potentials, the Consolidated Breweries, in partnership with Tradall S.A., member of the Bacardi Martini Group, introduced the Bacardi Breezer into the Nigerian market at an elaborate ceremony at Oriental Hotels, Lagos.
Speaking on the product, Tradall’s Country Manager, Mr Femi Olajimbiti, said that the brand’s entry into the Nigerian market is coming at the right time, especially now that the country has established itself as the largest economy on the African continent. Describing the new entrant as the world’s most colourful alcoholic drink, Olajimbiti said that Breezer which was introduced to the global market over 50 years ago, is designed for free spirited Nigerians who enjoy the colourful side of life, adding that the RTD is already enjoyed in over 150 countries across the world.
Three brand ambassadors were also unveiled for Breezer at the event. They include Sean Tizzle, Yemi Alade and Seyi Shay. The country manager said that the brand ambassadors will help to drive excitement and talkability for Breezer among target audience of youth aged between 18 and 24. Brand Manager for Bacardi Breezer, Olugbenga Lawrence, said: “We are thrilled that we can now announce that Breezer has officially landed in Nigeria. Breezer is the perfect drink for all free spirited Nigerians who want to enjoy the colourful side of life.” Lawrence added that “Breezer lives life in colour – and we’re asking Nigerians to show us your passion for life, show us your true colours.”
The latest alcoholic beverage to hit Nigeria was also revealed to hundreds of fun loving Nigerians who won tickets to the unveiling party at the Oriental Hotel on Victoria Island where a whole host of famous faces, including Sean Tizzle, Yemi Alade and Seyi Shay were on the colourful carpet to celebrate its arrival.
