Talking Rain Beverage Company in Preston has been recognized as a Product of the Year winner in the United Kingdom. The award is the largest consumer-driven award for product innovation; nearly 12,000 households responded to the survey designed to identify the top consumer products on the market. They named Sparkling Ice the winner in the “No Added Sugar” drinks category.

Following the brand’s expansion to the United Kingdom and Ireland in 2016, Sparkling Ice has seen significant success in the marketplace, with presence in over 15,000 stores.

“Since our launch in the U.K. and Ireland this past spring, we have been energized by the excitement surrounding our brand,” said Kevin Klock, President and CEO of Talking Rain Beverage Co. “This award is a special honor as it has been voted on by the U.K. consumer.”

The Product of the Year award ceremony was held in London at Sheraton Grand on Park Lane, and was hosted by comedian Rory Bremner.

Kantar TNS, one of the world’s leading research agencies conducted the research.
