Stronger, more stylish and delivers the perfect pour

4th April 2012: Molson Coors is making new Carling glassware available to the on-trade from this week as part of its 're-ignite strategy' for the UK's best selling beer. The glassware, created by design agency Echo, reflects the major marketing campaign launched last year, which positions Carling as Refreshingly and Brilliantly British. Four million pint and half-pint glasses will be made available to pubs, bars and clubs across the UK.

Research undertaken by Molson Coors indicates that the glassware will be well received by consumers: three-quarters (77%) of drinkers said that they preferred the new glasses over the old, and nine out of ten (93%) said that the updated design fitted 'well' or 'very well' with Carling's brand image 1.

Jeremy Gibson, Carling Brand Director, explains why Molson Coors is investing in new glassware: "Delivering that perfect serve is an absolutely essential part of invigorating the beer category and the right glassware for our beers is crucial. It was important to us that we have a glass that reflects the sophisticated nature of the UK's bestselling lager, complementing the advertising currently on TV and ensured that, from the first sip until the last, it provided a great drinking experience."

In addition to reflecting the updated image of Carling, the new glassware produces a better serve. The glasses have increased nucleation to improve head performance, helping ensure that Carling lives up to its 'Brilliantly Refreshing' billing right to the bottom of the glass. The glass is also tougher, with thicker walls and higher impact strength to reduce breakages.

The glassware, which is available in pint and half-pint glasses, can be ordered by Carling on-trade stockists from this week.
