We’re only a few months into 2021, but it’s already shaping into another banner year for ready-to-drink cocktails. In this gallery, we highlight some of the notable new releases thus far, which features several well-known spirits brands — including Bombay Sapphire and Ogden’s Own — making their RTD debuts.
Hitting shelves in April, Bombay Sapphire is marking its entrance to the RTD cocktail category with the launch of its signature Gin & Tonic and Gin & Tonic Light (5.9% ABV each). Available in 4-packs of 250ml cans, the line puts the classic cocktail in a convenient format that’s ready for on-the-go. The suggested retail price is $12.99.
Crook & Marker
Deepening its presence in the organic spirits space, RTD cocktail brand Crook & Marker has introduced a line of premium Lime Margaritas made with 100% pure Blue Agave tequila and just 100 calories. The line is available in 8-packs nationwide, with prices varying by market.
Hailing from Utah, Ogden’s Own is stepping into the ready-to-drink cocktail category for the first time this year with the introduction of two canned varietals of classic cocktails: Five Wives Moscow Mule (10% ABV) and Five Wives Vodka Soda (7% ABV) - both made with its award-winning Five Wives Vodka. Both Ogden’s cocktails are now officially available for sale at the Ogden’s Own Distillery Store and will soon be available nationwide for the suggested price of $3.39 per 12 oz. can.
Launched early this year, Kombucha Cocktails is just like it sounds — a line of kombucha-based cocktails featuring premium spirits like gin, vodka and tequila. The line is available in three SKUs: Cucumber Clarity (7% ABV), Mindful Mule (5% ABV) and Sunshine State (5% ABV) in 12 oz. slim cans.
Kinky has expanded its range of low-alcohol RTD cocktails (5% ABV) with Fruit Punch. Kinky Fruit Punch is available nationwide in 6-packs for a suggested retail price of $8.99. The flavor is also sold as a liqueur in 750mL bottles for $19.99.
