Madam Leticia Teiko Insaidoo, Mainstream Spirit and Customer Marketing Director of the Guinness Ghana Limited has advised the youth to drink responsibly by avoiding alcoholic drinks that will affect their health and make them wayward.
Instead, she urged them to concentrate on securing good education or skills that would make their future better and for Ghana as a whole.
Madam Leticia gave the advice at the Consumer launch of the Orijin Herbal Gin, held at the Sokoban Wood Village, a suburb of Kumasi.
She said people under 18 years were not among the target audience of the new product, she stressed.
The Director also cautioned pregnant women and nursing mothers to abstain from the drink as it would not help them and their unborn babies.
She explained that the Gin, which was a “revolutionalised” spirit based drink was infused with selected African aromatic fruits and although it was alcoholic, it tasted smoothly on the tongue and could be found in 75 CL and small sachets or in tots at the bars.
She noted that the drink could be found in Kumasi and Accra only but management were working hard to soon make it available across the country.
Mr Emmanuel Amenyo, Chairman for the occasion was glad Guinness Ghana Limitedf had brought its product to the door steps of the wood workers and their neighbours.
