If You’re Happy & You Know It, Clap Your Cans
No longer just in the bottle, refreshing canned beverages are available in an amazing array of varieties and potencies
Do The Volley Flip
Here’s a riddle: what’s clean on the inside and clean on the outside? Volley, the first clean tequila seltzer, has committed to even cleaner cans with the introduction of a distinctive foil topper. Whether grabbing a chilled Volley can from the cooler or pouring one out on the rocks, flipping the can before serving activates the real, organic juice that has settled at the bottom. This new foil topper packaging component conveys that very message reminding consumers to do the “Volley flip” for optimum sipping. Plus, you can have peace of mind that you’re getting a clean drinking experience on the outside too, since many uncovered cans encounter bacteria during the supply chain process. Volley is made with only three ingredients, 100% agave blanco tequila from the highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, sparkling water, and organic juice. This means Volley includes zero commonly-used fake sugars, preservatives, “natural” flavorings, essences and corn syrup that hide in the nutrition facts of most other seltzers on the market. Available in four guilt-free flavors: Zesty Lime, Spicy Ginger, Sharp Grapefruit and Tropical Mango. drinkvolley.com

We're Ready to Love Wesake
WESAKE is a Junmai Ginjo-style sake - like all sakes in the Junmai category, it is made with only four simple ingredients: rice, water, yeast and koji (a Japanese fermentation starter). This simple sip joins the market as a “better for you beverage” designed to be enjoyed at rooftop parties, small gatherings, nights out and well, just about anywhere. It’s best consumed chilled and meant to be shared with family and friends. WESAKE begins in the rice fields of Tagocho, Japan, where rice grains are carefully grown by local farmers for six months. The rice is then transported to the brewery in Kobe, Japan, an area famous for sake brewing given its climate and pristine water sources. It is brewed Junmai Ginjo style because it’s elegant enough for seasoned sake drinkers, but also bright, fun and easy for all those who are starting to drink it. These non-GMO, vegan, gluten-free, 200ml cans clock in at 13% ABV, at $18.99 for a four-pack. They’re currently available at wesake.co/products/wesake
