Jamaican beverage brand Saapos has repackaged its range of ambient drinks and is launching it to the retail market under the name The Original Caribbean Punch. Originally created by Jamaican-born Collin Carr for his North London restaurant and named after his nickname, Saapo, the range has three exotic variants: original fruit punch, beetroot punch and milk-based pineapple punch.
The Saapos drinks are made with natural ingredients. They come in recyclable 330ml plastic bottles, with a rrp of £1.75, and packed eight to a case. The company says that although its customer base so far has primarily been the Caribbean community, it expects the drinks to have a much broader appeal.
