After spending 82 years hanging with the good, All-American boys, it looks like major-winning legend Arnold Palmer has designs on a more dangerous, party-loving image.
An alcoholic version of his branded “half-and-half” mix of iced tea and lemonade has hit the shelves and has designs on finding its way into the fridges of middle-aged ladies across the nation.
It appears a slightly odd marketing decision, particularly given the extent to which the Arnold Palmer name has become synonymous with sobriety (as a teetotaller, I often ask myself: “What would Mr. Palmer do?”), but I’ll just give the Horwell Brewing Company the benefit of the doubt. I’m sure they’ve crunched the numbers on this one.
Don Vultaggio, the group’s chairman, sounds downright enthusiastic about the drink:
One can only assume the great man himself– who I’m sure took a hands-on role in the product’s development– is similarly excited.
