says sales director Sital Joshi : " Pine for the genuine brew, because XJ Premium is coming to the UK direct from Belgium ."
The brand claims more good news: "The vital elements of the XJ brand aren't just the all-natural ingredients and the stylish can." XJ offers the consumer, continues Joshi, " Great value and quality adding up to a unique, winning new product ."
The stated aim behind XJ
Premium lager was "to produce a genuine premium lager for the UK, reflecting demand for a great taste, at a breakthrough price".
XJ Premium lager may well revolutionise the UK market on price points alone, as it competes head on with established labels. However, XJ Premium has another selling point
