Bottled cocktail maker unveils two new variantsBy Melita Kiely
Austin Cocktails has extended its bottled cocktail range with the addition of two new small batch variants – Fred’s Ruby Red Cocktail and Bergamot Orange Margarita.
Furthermore, the brand has been given a new look with an updated label launched in Texas, California, Colorado and New York/Tri-State markets.
“Leveraging our beverage development experience and long-lived family cocktail tradition, we saw an opportunity to develop drinks that tempt the palate with complex ingredients rather than heavy sugars and neon colours,” said Jill Burns, co-founder.
“We also saw fine wine and craft beer on tap and thought we could bring that combination of convenience and craft to premium cocktails.”
Fred’s Ruby Red Cocktails pays homage to the co-founders’ grandfather and is made with a five-times distilled vodka, natural ruby red grapefruit, lime and mint.
The Bergamot Orange Margarita is made from bergamot orange, triple sec, lime and agave with blanco Tequila.
Other flavours in the Austin Cocktails range include the Cucumber Vodka Mojito, Paradise Found and Tea Twister.
“We built Austin Cocktails around top tier quality, family-owned heritage and authentic character,” commented Burns and co-founder Kelly Gasink.
“We are looking to build a world-renowned staple for global alcohol consumers.”
