"Playboy Energy was created to give consumers a taste of the lifestyle that has always been associated with the Playboy brand," says Sarah Haney, vice president, licensing, Playboy Enterprises, Inc. Already creating buzz in Hollywood, pre-launch cans were on-hand at exclusive events around town. Celebrities were spotted drinking the not-yet-available beverage at summer soirees including the Polaroid Beach House in Malibu.
"The functional beverage category continues to expand at light speed, and we've seen many players both large and small emerge with new brands," says Robert Nistico, president of Play Beverages LLC. "The Playboy Rabbit Head Icon is among the most recognized brand icons globally and affords us instant recognition and credibility in this dynamic category - all of which will ultimately translate to trial and repeat purchases."
