White Claw® Watermelon Crashes Onto Aussie Shores

They say time flies when you’re having fun. One year on, five flavours and 7.8 million cans later, White Claw® are proud to be Australia’s #1 selling hard seltzer¹.

The OG hard seltzer, recently named #1 RTD in the world², White Claw® sells 60 million cases annually, is outselling the likes of Bud & Corona in the US³, and with 46 billion social impressions, its cult status continues to take the world by storm.

A $50 million-plus category in Australia, hard seltzers are already worth 10 per cent of the light RTD category⁴, with a strong growth trajectory as new flavours and formats continue to disrupt the market, led by White Claw®. This summer, White Claw® is your open invitation to escape to moments of pure enjoyment with mates, whatever that means for you.

When the question is ‘should we?’, the answer will always be ‘Let’s White Claw®’.

Let’s talk success

Kickstarting the hard seltzer phenomenon and making waves across the globe, 12 months in Australia has seen White Claw® settle into the top spot on our local shores.

After sell out success at launch last year, momentum has continued through 2021 with the successful limited release of Black Cherry in April and the core flavours remaining popular year-round.

With 30.9 per cent volume share of the hard seltzer market for the last quarter⁵, White Claw’s market leadership can be attributed to superior taste, genderless appeal and innovative tactics that continually seek fresh ways to connect with the modern drinker.

White Claw® Mango accounts for 38 per cent of all White Claw® sold since launching in Australia, and with equal flavour appeal locally in Watermelon2, that 7.8 million can count is set to soar.
