WhiteCap Crisp Introduces a Sleek 330ml Cans In Kenyan Market

With the release of a stylish canned beer in 330ml volume on the market, Kenya Breweries Limited has bolstered the expansion of its Whitecap Trademark. The can pack strives to provide value and convenience for consumers while adhering to the brand’s environmental commitment.

Building on WhiteCap Lager, WhiteCap Crisp beer was launched earlier in March with updated liquid flavor, new labels, and a fresh appearance.
“Consumer needs and preferences have changed such that consumers are constantly looking for things that fit into their lifestyle, have excellent taste, simplify their lives, attract their attention, and have a positive influence on the environment,” argues Ngugi Kerago, Head of Emerging Channels.

“We strive to strike a balance between the premium nature of our beers and their high value. Because it is portable, lightweight, convenient, and swiftly cools, the can is a great option. Additionally, it is more eco-friendly in terms of the environment. He added.

To appeal to aspirational drinkers who want a modern but approachable beer with premium flavor, enjoyed every day on light drinking occasions like during a meal with friends, lunch, or afternoon debriefings, WhiteCap crisp is blended with fine Kenyan ingredients. It has a clean, lighter taste, is sugar-free, and is of high quality.

KBL’s Marketing Manager for the Beer Category, Catherine Ndungu, commented during the immersion session: “We are optimistic that the innovation will be equally successful with our consumers and will help grow the category.
We intend to establish ourselves as a key player in the local beer market and beyond by producing aspirational beers that are convenient and dependably tasty. We are also providing a solution for the moderators who are always looking for drinks that have low alcohol content, no added sugar, and are available in the smallest size that they find most appealing.

Craft beer in cans is a more and more popular option everywhere in the world. Research shows that consumer trends and attitudes toward packaging are what are driving this format’s explosive expansion.

Because they are portable, lightweight, and environmentally friendly, consumers adore cans.
WhiteCap is the top local mass premium brand with premium qualities of the highest caliber while remaining grounded in regional values. Its admiration has a long history and may be traced to pre- and post-colonial times. It was first mostly drank by white settlers before being embraced by Kenyan elites.

The suggested retail price (RRP) for the new WhiteCap Crisp is Ksh. 180 for a returnable bottle (RGB) and Ksh. 200 for a can. It is best savored on casual drinking situations like lunch with friends, afternoon debriefings, or mealtimes.
According to CCF data, 62% of consumers say that leading a healthy lifestyle is vital. Of this group, 43% make an effort to limit their alcohol consumption, and 45% look for “genuine and natural” in the food and beverages they choose.

Father’s Day: The Scottish Highland Distillery Glenmorangie Celebrates Father’s Day

Nairobi June 16th, 2022, Glenmorangie, a Scottish Highland distillery, held an exclusive single malt tasting event in Nairobi’s Sankara neighborhood, bringing together powerful fathers who are whisky enthusiasts.

The purpose of the event was to celebrate Father’s Day by immersing guests in Glenmorangie’s sophisticated refinement, a layered complexity that gives depth and substance to the compelling sensory tasting experience.

“Mr. Alexandre Helaine Moet Hennessy, Market Manager, Eastern Africa,” said Mr. Alexandre Helaine Moet Hennessy during his remarks at the occasion “We’ve been honing our skill at Glenmorangie for 179 years in our pursuit of the best whiskies.
We want to create immersive brand experiences by giving us the freedom to tell our tales and share our whisky with individuals looking to try Glenmorangie, Scotland’s Smoothest Single Malt Whisky.”

The tasting allowed whisky enthusiasts to participate in Glenmorangie’s incredible journey, as well as write and share stories based on their own experiences.

“Our father’s words of wisdom and advise shape who we are.
They instill in us the confidence to confront both the good and the terrible in our lives. We invite everyone who has been inspired by a parent or father figure to share their story as a brand because fathers deserve respect and gratitude.” “Mr. Helaine threw in his two cents’ worth.

Glenmorangie encourages you to raise a glass and participate in the discourse by sharing your favorite memories of your father or father figure.

About Glenmorangie

Glenmorangie has been lovingly distilled since 1843. William Matheson, our founder, was a visionary and a perfectionist.
He created a single malt whisky that is unparalleled in terms of delicacy, smoothness, and flavor complexity.
The dish is deceptively easy, but the level of attention to detail is incredible. We make an exquisite mash by marrying the clean mineral-rich waters of the Tarlogie Springs with local golden Scottish barley, which we distill in Scotland’s tallest malt whiskey stills to produce a purer, smoother whisky.
The necks alone are the height of a fully-grown adult male giraffe at 5.24 meters (nearly 16 feet).

What is the advantage of this fixation with height?
Only the finest and lightest vapors condense into our spirit, which we age in Missouri White Oak barrels. (It will take at least ten years.) These carefully selected casks, made from 100-year-old trees and seasoned for another two years after felling, provide a hue and a creamy smoothness of flavor that is complete perfection.
There are, of course, easier and faster ways to produce whisky.
There are many other single malts. However, once you’ve had a taste of Glenmorangie, you’ll never want to try anything else since we are adamant about how our whisky is made, no matter how much time or money it takes.

Drinking in Moderation:
The Glenmorangie Company promotes safe drinking and recommends that whisky lovers enjoy Glenmorangie whiskies in moderation and in accordance with daily alcohol consumption standards.

Top 10 List of Best Ice Cream Joints In Kenya

If you’re going to indulge in ice cream, make sure it’s good quality stuff at NFH we have compiled a list of top ice cream brands in Kenya and their location

Nairobi has had its fair share of consumers who consume various products and ice cream is no doubt one of these products. Although they say ladies are the major consumers of ice creams, men also tend to take ice creams once in a while especially when they are together with their girlfriends, wives or better so having a date of some sort.

These ice cream shops represent everything that is well and good: new-wave artisan shops challenging the very notion of what should be placed on a cone (or stick, or between cookies), old-school parlors learning new tricks, new-school parlors trying to remind you of old-school ones, plant-based creameries, and much more. Grab a napkin. It’s going to be a glorious mess.

Ice cream is a sweetened frozen food typically eaten as a snack or dessert. It may be made from dairy milk or cream and is flavored with a sweetener, either sugar or an alternative, and spice, such as cocoa or vanilla, or with fruit such as strawberries or peaches.
