S. Pellegrino has unveiled its first-ever line of caffeinated sparkling waters.
Taking cues from the ease and delight of Italian coffee bars, these new zero-calorie and zero-sweetener drinks under the S. Pellegrino Essenza product range contain 30mg of caffeine, which is about one-third of the amount of caffeine in an average cup of coffee.
The S. Pellegrino Essenza line of coffee-infused sparkling waters come in three flavors: Exotic Vanilla & Coffee, Delicious Cocoa & Coffee, and Smooth Caramel & Coffee.
The Exotic Vanilla & Coffee flavor features espresso coffee flavors with sweet, velvety vanilla notes, which is best paired with fresh berries and nuts. The Delicious Cocoa & Coffee flavor, meanwhile, offers a rich, smooth cocoa flavor that goes well with biscotti, pastries, croissants or muffins. Lastly, the Smooth Caramel & Coffee flavor boasts a sweet, indulgent caramel taste that pairs best with white cheddar cheese and apple or pear slices.
“Building on the popularity of our S.Pellegrino Essenza, featuring fresh Mediterranean fruit flavors, we turned to Italian coffee bars as inspiration for this new line,” Sara Mayer, senior marketing manager for S.Pellegrino, said in a news release. “With sophisticated and indulgent hints of vanilla, cocoa and caramel, and a gentle dose of caffeine, this new offering is the perfect accompaniment to perk up your daily breaks and snack times.”
The S.Pellegrino Essenza coffee-flavored sparkling waters, which are bottled at the source in Italy, will hit U.S. store shelves nationwide this spring. They will be available at a suggested retail price of $5.99 for an 8-can fridge pack.
The S.Pellegrino Essenza product range originally launched in the U.S. in 2019 with flavors inspired by the fruits of the Mediterranean coast. It is currently available in four combinations: Tangerine & Wild Strawberry; Dark Morello Cherry & Pomegranate; Lemon & Lemon Zest; and Blood Orange & Black Raspberry.
