The Bali flavour features the fruity and floral flavours of rambutan and hibiscus, while the Gold Coast flavour showcases coconut and fairy floss with a hint of sea salt.

The Melbourne seltzer pays homage to Victoria's coffee culture with a deconstructed café latte flavour, and the Queenstown evokes the winter warmers of mulled wine, cloves and cinnamon.
