Launched in vibrant, eye-catching 330ml cans, Rubicon Street Drinks contain still fruit juice with natural flavours and herbs.

Marketing director Adrian Troy comments: “Street food has captured the imagination of UK consumers in recent years and now Rubicon Street Drinks will enable consumers to discover a world of exciting, new soft drinks, using authentic flavours from the world’s hottest streets.
