Though the recession likely has consumers avoiding most premium product launches, manufacturers continue to introduce items with a pristine feel. Old Orchard Brands has joined the trend with its introduction of Very Cherre. Unlike the majority of Old Orchard’s juices in a family-sized container marketed to the masses, the new juice appeals to those seeking a refined juice drink with exceptional taste.

Very Cherre is a line of premium tart cherry juices that are all-natural and free from preservatives and added sugar. The juice comes in four varieties: Pure Tart Cherry, Tart Cherry Pomegranate, Tart Cherry Cranberry and Tart Cherry Blueberry. The beverage retails in a stylish glass bottle, which speaks to its overall allure and serves to retain Very Cherre’s freshness.
