"Red Bull Gives You Wings"

~ Red Bull Slogan

If Irn Bru or Coca Cola don't give you that extra boost (along with their respective matching tartans), you have another non-alcoholic tartan beverage choice - Red Bull! The most popular energy drink in the world, Red Bull was launched in 1987 and owes its origins to a similar drink called Krating Daeng, which was introduced in 1976 in Thailand and marketed towards labourers and students as a means to increase their productivity. Depending on the country, Red Bull contains different amounts of caffeine, taurine, B vitamins (B2, B3, B5, B6, B12) and simple sugars (sucrose and glucose) in a buffer solution of carbonated water, baking soda and magnesium carbonate.

Love it or hate it, Red Bull is ubiquitous.


Red Bull's advertising blurb reads as follows: Red Bull is a non-alcoholic drink with key ingredients, which have a proven revitalising effect on mind and body. It has been developed as an energiser especially for periods of mental and physical exertion and can therefore be drunk on virtually unlimited occasions: during sports, at work and in leisure activities. The Red Bull effect results from a combination of two natural substances and vital metabolic transmitters - the amino acids taurine and glucuronolactone - with stimulating caffeine, vitamins and carbohydrates.


This tartan utilizes the corporate colours of the packaging.
