To the Editor: The extension of alcohol brands to non‐alcohol products has been part of the marketing strategy of some alcohol companies on several occasions.1 Recent examples highlight that this marketing tactic warrants further research and policy attention in Australia. Following the release of a limited‐edition Bundaberg Rum‐branded Ice Break (iced coffee) in Queensland in 2019, the product was rolled out nationally in supermarkets and petrol stations in October 2020. This follows similar examples of alcohol‐branded chocolates, zero‐alcohol beverages, and fragrances.
