Greenbar Distillery adds five RTD cocktails to range

Apr 9, 2020by Owen Bellwood

Los Angeles-based Greenbar Distillery has launched a line of canned cocktails comprising three Highballs and two non-alcoholic Spritzes.

Launching in 20 states across the US, the range includes Single Malt Whiskey and Soda (7% ABV), Coastal Rum and Cola (7% ABV), City Gin and Tonic (8% ABV), Lavender Bitters and Soda and Orange Bitters and Soda. The Highball range features RTDs made using Greenbar’s three-year-old single malt whiskey, the distiller’s silver and spiced rums, and Greenbar’s Bright gin. Available in 12oz four-packs, the alcoholic Highballs retail at US$14.99 and the non-alcoholic RTDs are available for US$9.99. Greenbar Distillery will plant a tree for every case of its ready-to-drink cocktails sold. Melkon Khosrovian, co-founder and spirits maker at Greenbar Distillery, said: “If done right, canned cocktails can finally deliver on the revolution that mixologists started in the early 2000s by letting everyone drink better.” Canned and RTD cocktails have become staples for imbibers' drinks cabinets. Last month, we rounded up the top RTDs from across the category for drinkers seeking to elevate their at-home alcohol offering.
