Vintage Kinnie’s heritage dates back to 1952 when it was originally developed by Simonds Farsons Cisk in Malta as an alternative to the innumerable colas that had proliferated in Europe since the Second World War. Almost overnight, its distinctive characteristics made it Malta's favourite soft drink. Kinnie has been loved ever since both by the local population and tourists alike.
Originality and Quality Kinnie’s originality and quality has been recognized by the award of the “ Epi d’Or de la Qualité Internationale’, the highest honour to be conferred by the internationally renowned, Paris based ‘Comité International d’Action Gastronomique’.
Vintage Over the years the brand's image grew stronger and stronger. Packaging also moved along with the times, keeping Kinnie a market leader in the bitter-sweet beverage category. Packaging can be adapted and modified depending on market requirements in different countries
Due to this popularity and evolving lifestyle trends, a Diet version was introduced in 1984, and this now forms an integral part of the Kinnie brand.
