As consumers adjust to the post-holiday blues, their thirst for premium beverages carries on. In the Readers’ Choice: New Product poll for December, Beverage Industry readers’ selected Victorieux Champagne as their favorite new product release.
With 42 percent of the vote, Victorieux Champagne is grown in the terroir of the Côte de Sezanne, France, from a certified, sustainable viticulture grower and producer family, the company says. The Champagne features a 12 percent alcohol-by-volume content and has a suggested retail price of $49.99 for a 750-ml glass bottle.
Second place in the December Readers’ Choice poll with 25 percent of the vote is Hoist Electrolyte Water. Hoist is a balance of electrolytes, carbohydrates and water for rapid hydration, the company says. The 16-ounce bottles are available in four flavors —Watermelon, Strawberry Lemonade, Dragon Fruit and Orange — and will be available for purchase starting Feb. 1.
Rounding out third place this month with 13 percent of the vote is Terra Water, a bottled water where the bottle is 100 percent biodegradable and compostable, the company says. The 500-ml bottles will biodegrade at 60 degrees and burn without releasing pollutants in the air, it adds. Terra Water is available nationwide.
