A NEW range of energy drinks is set to be launched in Scotland later this month by the makers of Irn-Bru.

AG Barr said its Pwr-Bru drink will contain the “iconic Irn-Bru essence for a unique taste,” and like its counterparts such as Red Bull and Monster will contain caffeine, taurine and B-Vitamins.

Those who want a taste before the official launch on August 28, can look for “scan the can” QR codes that have been placed around various cities in Scotland such as; Glasgow, Edinburgh, Dundee, Aberdeen, Inverness and Perth.

However, with only 400 cans in circulation fans will need to be quick to get their hands on one of the cans.

Annette Yates, head of brand at Pwr-Bru, said: “Pwr-bru is a combination of the unique personality of Irn-Bru and a bold new approach to energy drinks.

"It’s one of the biggest launches ever from the family behind Irn-Bru and we think fans of energy drinks are going to enjoy adding a Pwr-Brust to their day.”
