Rod & Hammer’s SLO Stills Launches New Canned Whiskey Cocktails

San Luis Obispo, Calif. — Rod & Hammer’s SLO Stills, the California distiller of award-winning craft spirits, introduces its NEW line of ready-to-drink (RTD) canned cocktails at WhiskeyFest in San Francisco, joining their lineup of spirits sold throughout the state.

Rod & Hammer’s SLO Stills’ canned whiskey cocktails (11% ABV; 22 proof; MSRP $17.99/12oz four-pack) are full-strength and ready to drink straight out of the can – no mixing necessary. Simply serve chilled or pour over ice, making for a convenient cocktail for outdoor or indoor activities. Made with all-natural ingredients and Rod & Hammer’s SLO Stills whiskey that’s Cut With The Pacific™ using purified ocean water, these unique variations on traditional cocktails are true, bold and authentic. Flavors include a Whiskey Margarita, Whiskey Mule, and a Whiskey Paloma.

The new cocktails are handcrafted and canned at Rod & Hammer’s SLO Stills’ distillery in San Luis Obispo, founded when Rodney “Rod” Cegelski, a California surfer, met Hamish “Hammer” Marshall, an Aussie jackaroo, and a friendship emerged over a shared appreciation of quality spirits and the Central Coast. The distillery was natural offshoot for Marshall, a beer-loving Aussie who purchased the long-standing California brewery SLO Brew in 2010 and has been pushing it to new heights ever since.

“We wanted to give classic cocktails a bit of a whiskey twist,” says co-founder Rodney Cegelski. “Their full strength and handcrafted with our whiskey for a proper cocktail on the go.”

Since earning 93 points from Wine Enthusiast for its flagship Distiller’s Reserve Rye Whiskey, one of the select few California spirits recognized by Wine Enthusiast in its “Top 100 Spirits of 2020,” Rod & Hammer’s SLO Stills has been showing the world how California does whiskey. With its new line of canned cocktails, it joins the fast-growing RTD segment with three exceptional interpretations of classic cocktails.
