WHERE TO BUY

Red Bull Energy Drink was created in Austria in 1987, and is consistently the #1 selling energy drink with over 7 billion cans sold each year globally.

It is one of the very first energy drinks and is now distributed in more than 171 countries and employs over 12,000 people worldwide.

The incredibly popular energy drink has been a catalyst for dozens of imitations and has built a very strong brand - although the drink formulation has remained relatively unchanged.

Red Bull Energy Drink Variations
