Tropical alcohol-free drinks brand Caleño gains listing with Spinney’s
Tropical non-alcoholic spirits brand Caleño has launched in the UAE after gaining a listing with renowned supermarket chain Spinney’s. Containing two expressions in the range, Caleño brings joy to ‘not drinking' with sun-drenched alcohol-free drinks inspired by the vibrant flavours of Colombia.
These tropical drinks are a delicious alternative when you'd like an alcohol-free, refreshing sipping moment without having to compromise on taste and experience. Not only are they 0% alcohol; they are also sugar-free, gluten-free, low in calories, and vegan-friendly.
The dual range includes 'Dark & Spicy' – a tropical non-alcoholic spiced rum alternative, bold and packed with complex flavours of Colombia. Serve with ginger ale over ice, garnished with a wedge of lime. Meanwhile, 'Light & Zesty' is a tropical non-alcoholic gin alternative, distilled with a unique mix of citrus, inca berry and pineapple. Serve with tonic over ice, garnished with a wedge of fresh pineapple. Each expression contains 0.0% ABV.
“Fun, vibrant and flavoursome drinks”
The Caleño brand was founded four years ago by Ellie Webb – the only solo female founder in the ‘No & Low’ drinks category in the UK. She created the brand to give those who don’t drink or are moderating alcohol intake the opportunity to enjoy fun, vibrant and flavoursome drinks.
“We have been blown away by the success of Caleño in every market it has entered so far, and our goal is to continue to build on that success as we introduce the brand to consumers in the UAE,” remarked Ms. Webb. “We feel that Caleño will be a great addition to Spinney’s drinks portfolio,” she added
Already a successful brand in the UK, the two Caleño expressions are now available via Spinney’s and can be purchased both online and in several stores across Dubai priced at AED 78.75 for 500ml. In addition to the listing with Spinneys, Caleño has also gained a listing with Waitrose UAE, where the brand can also be found in-store and online.
The Caleño team will be exhibiting at Gulfood trade show from 20–24 February at the UK’s Department for International Trade stand (Stand number S1-C34) at the Dubai World Trade Centre.
