This drink has generated a lot of interest with Czech customers, with 64% consumers evaluating its flavour as positive according to a survey carried out by the IPSOS agency. The “PardálOVO“ retail plan for the period of April-July was surpassed by 37%, having reached a volume of 7,000 hectolitres. Owing to its specific flavour and the fruit beer market saturation, the brewery had intended a sales volume of 10,000 hectolitres for the first year on the market. The export of “PardálOVO bezové“ to Slovakia has recently been launched as well. The elderflower flavour also appears very attractive for customers in Germany - the cradle of mixed beer beverages; therefore the end of August will see the launch of export to this country, too.
