- Coca-Cola Japan has announced that it will introduce Canada Dry Hot Ginger Ale to Japanese vending machines on Oct. 21.
- The carbonated beverage, which the company claims took four years to develop, will come in self-heating aluminum cans that use a double-chambered design with a water and calcium oxide reaction to warm the drink.
- Coca-Cola already sells its hot Georgia Coffee brand in Japan, where teas and coffees are commonly found heated in vending machines.

Coke's new ginger ale may not be destined for a U.S. release anytime soon, but its release does follow a lineup of innovative packaging and product rollouts this year from the Atlanta-based beverage company. Highlights so far have included ice bottles in Columbia, a new herbal drink for Thailand and green labels for its stevia-sweetened Coca-Cola Life in Argentina.
