KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Kansas City-based Tom’s Town Distilling Co., launched a line of canned craft cocktails for the first time ever in response to the growing demand for a premium cocktail experience in the portability and ease of a can. These ready-to-drink cocktails are crafted with Tom’s Town award-winning spirits and all-natural flavors.
The four cocktails include:
- Elderflower Lime Gin Cocktail (made with Tom’s Town’s Botanical Gin)
- Grapefruit Clove Gin Cocktail (made with Tom’s Town Botanical Gin)
- Lemon Gin Collins (made with Tom’s Town Barreled Gin)
- Strawberry Mint Vodka Cocktail (made with Tom’s Town Double Grain Vodka)
The canned cocktails are sold in four-packs for a suggested retail price of $13.99, and will be available wherever spirits are sold across the states of Missouri, Kansas, Nebraska, and Oklahoma.
The three gin cocktails will also be sold at GEHA Field at Arrowhead Stadium this fall. They will be available in the Grab ‘n Go markets at the stadium throughout the season.
According to David Epstein, co-founder of Tom’s Town, the canned cocktail market is exploding. “People love the convenience of a canned cocktail,” said Epstein. “You can throw them in your cooler for a backyard party, take them to the pool, the lake, or a Chiefs tailgate. Think of them as your portable mixologist in a can.”
Unlike seltzers, these canned cocktails are not spiked water in a can. Each of the four cocktails has been carefully crafted to create a true cocktail experience, and is best enjoyed served over ice. The Elderflower Lime cocktail is reminiscent of a Gimlet, the Grapefruit Clove of a Long Cocktail, the Lemon Barreled Gin of a Gin Collins, and the Strawberry Mint is based on the distillery’s best-selling cocktail, the Gandy Dancer. Each cocktail packs a punch at 5%, 5%, 9%, and 8% ABV respectively.
