In somewhat of a surprise move, this morning shortly after 9:00 AM ET, High Noon announced a new vodka iced tea lineup via their social media channels, prior to any official news release. The launch was also promoted with additional coordinated social media posts from their brand partners, Dave Portnoy, and his Barstool Sports aligned "Nooners" High Noon promotional account. High Noon — far and away the market leader in RTD sales with their vodka seltzers and Tequila seltzers — stayed relatively tight-lipped leading up to this announcement and hadn't introduced any new lines since their High Noon Tequila Seltzers last May. However, given the rising popularity of spirits-based hard iced teas recently, it was just a matter of time before they introduced a line of their own. More information to follow.
