Braun said: “I couldn’t be more excited to unveil this delicious new drink just in time for summer. We worked hard to ensure the ingredients not only complement the warmer weather, but also reflect the beautiful colour of Very Peri. 

“The freshness of the citrus combined with Volvic Touch of Fruit Summer Fruits work wonderfully to create the perfect summer drink! Leaving you feeling refreshed and also looking good whilst drinking the beautiful drink.” 

 Bradley added: “Colour psychology plays a key role in an individual’s instinctual response to a product and can potentially trigger certain emotions. The colour combinations included in the Peri Cooler drink offer an array of emotions that could help you feel refreshed.” 

 “Lilac, the core tone of Volvic’s Peri Cooler, is believed to be the colour of calm and reflection, and is also thought to encourage self-care with its mood boosting tones.  

 “With the drink reflecting Very Peri, the colour of the year, the colours in this drink may bring about positive emotions which when combined with the summer sun should bring about happy Volvic consumers!” 

 Volvic’s Director of Culture and Experience, Lucille Moreau said: “Summer is officially here and we’re thrilled to launch our delicious new Peri Cooler recipe, inspired by the hottest colour of the year, Veri Peri!
