Brewdog and Regal Rogue launch RTD cocktails

Scottish producer Brewdog Distilling has teamed up with Australian vermouth brand Regal Rogue to create a selection of cocktail pouches.

The Lonewolf Gin and Regal Rogue Pouches are available in four ready-to-drink cocktails: Bold Wolf Negroni, Lively Wolf Martini, Paw Star Martini and Wild Wolf Sour. Steven Kersley, head of distilling at Brewdog, said: “We first worked on a Brewdog Distilling Co cocktail serve with Regal Rogue last Christmas, the Rogue Wave Negroni. “It worked really well and spurred us on to launch a full range of collaborative pouch cocktails. “We share a joint love of quality cocktails and spent three months developing these ultimate takes on our favourite classic drinks.” Bold Wolf Negroni has an ABV of 24% and is made using equal measures of Lonewolf London Dry gin, Regal Rogue’s Bold Red vermouth and Campari. The Lively Wolf Martini comes in at 25% ABV and is created using Lonewolf London Dry gin and Regal Rogue’s Lively White vermouth. With an ABV of 12%, Paw Star Martini uses Lonewolf’s Cactus and Lime gin and Regal Rogue’s Daring Dry vermouth to create a lower-ABV cocktail. Completing the collection is the Wild Wolf Sour (12% ABV). It is made using Lonewolf Cloudy Lemon gin and Regal Rogue Wild Rosé vermouth. Mark Ward, founder of Regal Rogue, said: “It’s a hugely exciting collaboration to showcase each brand to our respective fans and honours where we stand with our nod to sustainability and partnering with Brewdog Distilling Co’s carbon negative status ensuring the pouches used 100% sustainable packaging.” Last year, Brewdog joined the burgeoning hard seltzer category with the launch of its Clean and Press range.
