SEATTLE–(BUSINESS WIRE)–DRY, tastemakers of gourmet sparkling beverages, today unveiled their Lemongrass Reserve Edition flavor in celebration of the company’s 10-year anniversary. One of DRY’s original four flavors, a short run of only 5000 cases of Lemongrass DRY Sparkling will be produced and sold for a limited time this August. The Reserve Edition Flavor will be available via select retailers in the Pacific Northwest, including QFC, Fred Meyer, Safeway, PCC and Metropolitan Market, and online nationwide at Amazon.com (SRP $9.99 per 4-pack of bottles) this August.
“As one of the first DRY flavors I created, Lemongrass DRY has always been near and dear to my heart. I couldn’t think of a better way to honor our 10-year milestone than creating a limited edition run of this special beverage,” said Sharelle Klaus, CEO and founder of DRY. “We’ve come a long way in the past decade, and are humbled to have recently topped the list of the fastest growing carbonated soft drinks in the U.S. To us, summer means a time to relish in seasonal cuisine, warm weather vacations, and simply be inspired – all things we hope our reserve edition Lemongrass flavor brings to DRY fans and culinary enthusiasts.”
A sneak peak of Lemongrass DRY Sparkling was recently available to patrons of the Aspen FOOD + WINE Show, who were invited to try the reserve edition in advance of its limited PacNW release this summer. Reactions were overwhelmingly positive in this culinary setting, with more attendees requesting bottles of Lemongrass DRY than any other DRY flavor.
Invigorating, bright and refreshing, Lemongrass DRY’s Reserve Edition pairs perfectly with tropical fruit and Asian dishes like pad Thai, Kobe beef, coconut curry or spicy prawns, as well as spirits such as vodka, cachaça and tequila. Like all other DRY Sparkling beverages, Lemongrass is made with premium ingredients. It’s perfect for summer entertaining, pairing with a delicious meal, and mixing into cocktails.
DRY Sparkling beverages were designed to taste beautiful. They are wonderful when sipped from a wine glass or champagne flute, paired with a great meal, or mixed into a cocktail. Unlike other sparkling beverages that have heavy or overly-sweet flavor profiles, DRY is crisp, well-rounded and refreshing. The full, regular line includes eight botanically-driven flavors: Lavender, Cucumber, Blood Orange, Rhubarb, Ginger, Juniper Berry, Vanilla Bean, and Rainier Cherry.
DRY is available in natural and traditional grocers nationwide, including Kroger, Safeway, Whole Foods Market, Amazon.com and more. The line of premium sparkling beverages is available in 12 oz. aluminum cans, 12 oz. glass bottles and 4-packs, as well as new 750 mL bottles in select flavors. Lemongrass DRY will only be available in 12 oz. glass bottles. For more information, pairing ideas and craft cocktail recipes, please visit www.drysparkling.com.
