MountainDew MountainDew

Brand History

The main formula of Mountain Dew was invented in Virginia. The drink was named and first marketed in Johnson City, Tennessee and Knoxville, Tennessee in 1948.

In India, Mountain Dew set the soft drink category ablaze in 2003 with its iconic launch campaign ‘Cheetah Bhi Peeta Hai’.

Brand Advantage

It is a soft drink that exhilarates like no other because of its active, high-energy, extreme citrus taste. The idea of daring, challenges, a ‘can do’ attitude, adventure and exhilaration are deeply entrenched in its brand DNA. The brand has always celebrated the bold, adventurous and rebellious spirit of youth. This is reflected in the high-adrenaline advertising of the brand and its connection to outdoor adventure.

For beyond fear lay victory.
