BOSTON— Vision Wine & Spirits, the national sales & import division of Martignetti Companies, together with Dashfire, are pleased to announce exciting new editions to their line of bitters. Dashfire is a comprehensive bitters company based out of Minnetonka, Minnesota, founded by Lee and Dawn Egbert in 2012. Dashfire Ready-to-Drink (RTD) 6-pack 100ml cans and 750 ml bottles will be launching in Michigan. The RTDs are already distributed in Massachusetts, Connecticut, Georgia, Washington DC, Maryland and Minnesota. Look for it at your favorite retailer!
In the era of cocktail rooms and craft cocktail bars, Dashfire has created a line of high-proof, complex, ready-to-drink cocktails, featuring a twist on some of the best classic cocktails out there. The cocktails feature base spirits that are combined with unique flavors and bitters.
Egbert is a master of creating unique flavor combinations, and you can find unique blends in the Fig & Cascara Manhattan and the Elderflower Martinez.
Egbert says, “Dashfire’s ready to drink cocktails change the game – people get to enjoy a complete, restaurant quality cocktail at the drop of a hat, whenever and wherever they are.”
The 750 ml bottles are ready to be poured over ice for a perfect, premium and restaurant-quality cocktail at any time. Throw the cans in your cooler and you’re ready to enjoy your favorite cocktail at the lake, gathering, boat or golf course. Ice optional. The best part is that you only need one can instead of multiple bottles of liquor, mixers and juice.
