Coca-Cola Japan to introduce new heated fizzy drink Canada Dry Hot Ginger Ale

DBR Staff Writer Published 12 September 2013

Global beverage giant Coca-Cola has outlined plans to introduce a new Canada Dry Hot Ginger Ale, the world's first canned hot and fizzy drink, in Japan.

The new Canada Dry Hot Ginger Ale, which is a seasonal drink flavored with ginger, cinnamon and apple, will be sold in a can from vending machines.

The carbonated drink will be available in a can with heating technology that enables the drink to retain its carbonation when heated.

San Diego-based company Hot Can is behind the can-heating technology.

Gizmag noted that the heat activation process takes place in the double-chambered aluminum can, where the outer shell is heated by combining water and calcium oxide that fuel a chemical reaction, without interfering with carbonation.

Priced at around $1.20, the Canada Dry Hot Ginger Ale will be available for sale across Japan from 21 October 2013.

Japanese drinks company Kirin Beverage is also set to introduce a hot version of its fizzy fruity drink Kirin no Awa drink in November.

Kirin no Awa drink is said to be made available in convenience stores, targeting mainly women.
