Rogue Spirits Breaks into the Ready-to-Drink Category with 3 New Sparkling Cocktails
Rogue Spirits Distillery in Newport, Oregon has announced its entry into the Ready-to-Drink (RTD) category with the launch of its first sparkling canned cocktail line. As a brewery and distillery the company already has a many years of experience creating canned ready to drink adult beverages that can be enjoyed anywhere and anytime.
The three canned cocktails are each 7.5% ABV, gluten-free, made 100% natural ingredients and of course Rogue Spirits.
“As brewers we love the convenience of beer in a can, and as distillers we enjoy the complex flavor profiles of a good mixed drink, launching a line of canned cocktails just felt right. Leaning on our 16 years of distilling experience, we developed three amazing cocktails and put them in a can, so you don’t have to worry about mixing up your favorite drink on the go,” says Rogue President Dharma Tamm.
“Made with flavors that rival our freshly made bar equivalents, our sparkling craft cocktails are perfect for summer, whether it be camping, at the beach or in your backyard. They can be enjoyed right out of the can or poured over ice.”
Available in three flavors, each artfully designed can delivers a sophisticated, yet refreshing experience with bona fide craft cocktail credentials. “Our canned cocktails embody the spirit of the DIY ethos of mixology,” says Rogue Director of Business Development Steve Garrett. “They allow us to celebrate our craft spirits heritage and can be enjoyed no matter the occasion.”
