Liquid Death, best known for canning water has decided to rename one of its best-selling items. It has been noted that Liquid Death, a parody of the popular Arnold Palmer cocktail, announced on Saturday that its hybrid of half-lemonade and half-ice tea will no longer be referred to as an Armless Palmer. Liquid Death also sells sparkling water in addition to canned water and Dead Billionaire.

The beverage will now be known by the term “Dead Billionaire,” which is more consistent with the Liquid Death brand as a whole.

The owners of the “Arnold Palmer” trademark allegedly threatened Liquid Death’s “Armless Palmer” cocktail with a protracted legal dispute, according to a social media post published by the company.

The late legendary golfer, Palmer is noted to have been one of the first to combine unsweetened tea and lemonade on the pro golf circuit in the 1960s and his likeness has been synonymous with the drink since.

It has been noted that the most popular version of the drink has been bottled and canned by Arizona Beverage Company. That version has been available for purchase since 2002.

“If you like our Armless Palmer tea/lemonade, then you are going to LOVE our new Dead Billionaire tea/lemonade. Why? Because it’s the EXACT same thing, only now it has a way cooler name that won’t require us to fight a senseless legal battle with a large enterprise who sent us a letter saying we can’t use the word ‘Palmer’ and who are also partnered with a giant iced tea corporation. Both of whom have far more $$$ to burn on legal fees than we do,” the company said in its statement.

It added, “Our new Dead Billionaire cans have started to trickle out on Amazon and will begin hitting retail shelves in the spring. Experts are predicting potential brawls in retailers as customers fight over remaining Armless Palmer cans before they become extinct forever and reselling as collectors items for billions of dollars. ☠️💵”
