JACKSON, MS – Cathead Distillery is excited to announce Cathead Sparkling, an all-new line of ready-to-drink sparkling vodka sodas in four light, fruity flavors: Cranberry, Limeade, Satsuma Mandarin, and Strawberry Lemonade. The Cathead Sparkling line is the first of its kind from Mississippi-based craft distillery and is made with the brand’s flagship spirit: Cathead Vodka. Starting today, April 7, Cathead Sparkling variety 8-packs are available for pre-order via Cathead Distillery’s online store, and will also be available in stores in nine states (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and South Carolina) this month.
Founded in 2010 by friends and blues fans Austin Evans and Richard Patrick, Cathead Distillery is the first and oldest legal distillery in the state of Mississippi. Known for their standout portfolio of six small-batch spirits, including the market’s only Honeysuckle flavored vodka and Chicory Liqueur, the Cathead team is excited to introduce their very first canned cocktails.
“Made with original Cathead Vodka, our new line of Cathead Sparkling ready-to-drink cocktails are easy-drinking and taste great—plus with four flavors, you’ll never get flavor fatigue,” said Richard Patrick, Co-Founder of Cathead Distillery. “We wanted to create something that was convenient to grab and take out on the boat, to the beach, you name it.”
A CLOSER LOOK: CATHEAD SPARKLING
Served in 12oz. slim cans, Cathead Sparkling is made from all-natural ingredients with no added sugars or artificial sweeteners. Featuring four refreshing flavors—including Cranberry, Limeade, Satsuma Mandarin, and Strawberry Lemonade—the ready-to-drink cocktails have just 100 calories, 5% ABV, and are lightly effervescent.
After months of tasting and testing, each flavor was hand-selected by Richard and Austin, and are made from a simple list of three ingredients: Cathead Vodka, sparkling water, and natural flavors. Unlike many of the hard seltzers on the market, Cathead Sparkling is made from real Cathead Vodka—not malt liquor—resulting in a clean, refreshing taste that’s authentic and not overly sweet.
Each 8-pack variety case features two of each flavor and is available for a suggested retail price of $17.99 at select retailers in AL, AR, GA, KY, LA, MS, OK, TN, and SC. Also available for pre-order via the Cathead Distillery online store.
