For the first time, Corona is launching a new member to its family - Corona Ligera (lee-hair-ah), delivered to New Zealand directly from Mexico.

A mid-strength beer at just 3.2% alc/vol, Ligera is lighter on the taste buds with that unmistakeable refreshing, crisp Corona style that Kiwis love. Ligera is best served with a wedge of lime to amplify the fresh flavour that is the hallmark of Corona.

“Creating a new lighter option has been driven by the growing number of people actively looking to moderate their alcohol consumption while still wanting to enjoy a premium beer," said Ray Schultz from Corona NZ.

Corona Ligera will be available in supermarkets and liquor stores nationwide from 1 February in 12 packs.
