San Miguel 1516 is currently only available in Spain and the new packaging is launching in that country this month.

A spokesman for Grupo – Mahou San Miguel says, ‘The previous packaging wasn’t playing the role of a premium flagship in the San Miguel portfolio. Consumers confused San Miguel 1516 with a strong beer whereas it is actually a Pilsen lager.’

In place of a large label, the new design features 1516 embossed on to the glass, while each bottle carries a red seal on the neck label.
