AG Barr has claimed a market first with the launch of a non-carbonated recovery drink under its Rockstar brand.

Rockstar Recovery, available from next month, is made from the brand's usual energy-giving ingredients, including caffeine, plus electrolytes, and is flavoured with lemonade (rsp: £1.19 per 500ml can).

The newcomer, which AG Barr claimed to be the first non-carbonated drink in the energy sector, will be joined on shelf by a new 1-litre PET range available in the brand's original and guava flavours (rsp: £1.69).
