Vintage
Kinnie’s heritage dates back to 1952 when it was
originally developed by Simonds Farsons Cisk in Malta
as an alternative to the innumerable colas that had
proliferated in Europe since the Second World War.
Almost overnight, its distinctive characteristics made it
Malta's favourite soft drink. Kinnie has been loved ever
since both by the local population and tourists alike.
Originality and Quality
Kinnie’s originality and quality has been recognized
by the award of the “ Epi d’Or de la Qualité
Internationale’, the highest honour to be conferred by
the internationally renowned, Paris based ‘Comité
International d’Action Gastronomique’.

Over the years the brand's image grew stronger and

Packaging also moved along with the times, keeping
Kinnie a market leader in the bitter-sweet beverage
category.
Packaging can be adapted and modified depending
on market requirements in different countries

Kinnie as a Mixer
Ice-cold Kinnie is delicious drunk
straight, with a twist of orange. Its
bitter-sweet taste also lends itself to
mixing, and enhances most alcoholic
and non-alcoholic drinks. It is also
ideal as a top-up in a variety of
different cocktails, including nonalcoholic ones.
