Talking about the new product – Tiger Soju Infused Lager, Ms. Anna Bizon – Marketing Director of HEINEKEN Vietnam, on behalf of Tiger Beer comments: “Vietnam has always been an exciting yet challenging market to recruit new consumers. Yet after Covid times, the Vietnamese consumers have became much more open to try new products. We can observe a rise of interest in cocktails, soju, or new types of beers. Consumers are inspired to experiment or try new forms of mixology to diversify their drinking moments together. We believe Tiger Soju Infused Lager will bring out a unique taste, new experience, to not only meet consumers needs but also connect people together. Not only a beer representing Asian courage and renowned globally, this product is also an innovation of the “uncage spirit” including the collaboration of Tiger Soju Infused Lager & G-DRAGON.”
