Bengaluru witnessed a new Guinness World Record, as more than 900 students from the prestigious women’s educational institute, the Mount Carmel College, simultaneously opened most drink cans – TWISS – a canned sparkling fruit juice, at their premier Cul-Ah 2016 fest on January 22 (Friday) on the premises of the institution.
With this, they broke the existing record of ‘Most Drink Cans Opened Simultaneously, ‘ set by Ltd CidoGrupa (Latvia) in Ligatne, Latvia, on 2 August 2014, involving 689 people. Commodore Indru Wadhwani, President of Mallya Hospital, Dr. Jaykar Shetty and Chartered Accountant Rajesh Narayanan, representatives of Guinness World Records, were present on the occasion. They will validate the record and officially the certificate will be issued in a week’s time.
TWISS is the first ever multi-flavoured sparkling fruit juice to be introduced in India by TWISS Drinks India Pvt. Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TWISS UK. Speaking about the record, Mr. Nitin S Menon, Managing Director, TWISS Drinks India Pvt. Ltd., remarked, “We are excited to be here in India to offer this unique beverage. We are even more excited to set this new Guinness World Record with the active participation of energetic youths. It is unleashing the women power, as this is for the first time ever that women are participating in such large numbers in India for a world record.”
Sharing similar views, Ms. Niveditha Umesh, General Secretary, Students Union, Mount Carmel College, said, “We at the Mount Carmel College always look for something different in whatever we do and that has been our key differentiator. We are happy to partner with TWISS to set this new record. We hope to become the first college in India to take away this kind of a Guinness World Record honor. Cul-Ah our annual cultural fest is the right
platform for this.”
TWISS is available in four flavors – Mango with a twist of Lime; Passion Fruit with a twist of Orange; Lemon with a twist of Mint; and Apple with a twist of Blackcurrant. “The beverage is unique because we are the first to introduce a multi-flavoured sparkling drink with fruit flavor. TWISS products have been evolved by combining complementing fruits/herbs to enhance the thirst quenching experience with fun and adventure. We are creating a new category of beverages. Initially the juice cans will be available in Bengaluru, Mumbai, Chennai, Hyderabad, New Delhi and Pune. We will expand our presence gradually,” said Mr.Premchander Rajan, Chairman, TWISS Drinks India Pvt. Ltd.
