Grant Norris-Jones, Senior Vice President, Global Partnerships, UFC, commented:
“In only a short time, we’ve seen a tremendous response towards our Monaco-branded integrations in our content and live events. We’re committed to the long-term growth of the Ready-to-Drink category because it’s a great fit for our brand and it targets the sweet spot of our young adult demos. Atomic Brands, Monaco’s parent company, is a terrific partner to anchor the RTD category for us for years to come. We look forward to introducing other brands from their ready-to-drink portfolio to our audience as well.“
Don Deubler, CEO, Atomic Brands, said:
“We’re fired up about expanding our partnership with UFC, and excited to continue bringing high-energy to their fan base through our crowd-pleasing, best-selling canned cocktails. Aside from extending Monaco’s presence beyond the vodka category, fans can expect to see other ready-to-drink beverages featured from Atomic Brands’ diverse portfolio. We’re committed to providing UFC’s community with fun and flavor through our lineup of bold, delicious canned cocktails that really get the party going.“
