Bengaluru witnessed a new Guinness World Record, as more than 900 students from the Mount Carmel college simultaneously opened most drink cans of TWISS – a canned sparkling fruit juice, at their premier Cul-Ah 2016 fest on January 22, 2016.

With this, they broke the existing record of ‘Most Drink Cans Opened Simultaneously,  ‘ set by Ltd CidoGrupa (Latvia) in Ligatne, Latvia, on 2 August 2014, involving 689 people.

Commodore Indru Wadhwani, President of Mallya Hospital, Dr. Jaykar Shetty and  Chartered Accountant Rajesh Narayanan, representatives of Guinness World Records, were present on the occasion. They will validate the record and officially the certificate will be issued in a week’s time.

TWISS is the first ever multi-flavoured sparkling fruit juice to be introduced in India by TWISS Drinks India Pvt. Ltd, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TWISS UK.

Speaking about the record, Mr. Nitin S Menon, Managing Director, TWISS Drinks India  Pvt. Ltd., remarked, “We are excited to be here in India to offer this unique beverage. We are even more excited to set this new Guinness World Record with the active participation of energetic youths. It is unleashing the women power, as this is for the first time ever that women are participating in such large numbers in India for a world record.”

TWISS is available in four flavours – Mango with a twist of Lime; Passion Fruit with a  twist of Orange; Lemon with a twist of Mint; and Apple with a twist of Blackcurrant.

TWISS supports the ‘Make in India’ initiative, as their beverages are canned at a special unit in Pune, Maharashtra.
