(Coca-Cola Company)

The Coca-Cola Company is expanding the popular Topo Chico line to include hard seltzer.

Calling all Topo Chico lovers: your favorite mineral water brand is coming out with its own hard seltzer.


The Coca-Cola Company, which acquired Topo Chico in 2017, announced today that a new hard seltzer will hit the market late this year. The drink comes in a can and is "tangy lemon lime" flavored.

The announcement stated that Topo Chico Hard Seltzer will be available in select Latin American cities later this year. And, the company told Bloomberg News, the U.S. can expect the drink to hit the market in 2021.

Topo Chico, a favorite of many Austinites, follows other companies into the hard seltzer market, including Austin Eastciders.
