LaGrange, Georgia-based Wild Leap has introduced its ready-to-drink premium vodka cocktails. This new line of canned cocktails debuts in two flavors, Strawberry Mango and Creamsicle Mojito, and features three ounces of premium Wild Leap Vodka. These canned cocktails are 10 percent alcohol by volume, gluten-free and require no preparation before opening.
Available in four-packs of slender 12-oz. cans, Wild Leap Ready-To-Drink Premium Vodka Cocktails are on shelves now.
Since launching the distillery in 2019, Wild Leap has been serving handcrafted vodka cocktails in its taproom. As service shifted from in-person to curbside service due to COVID-19, Wild Leap pivoted with its offerings to accommodate its growing number of cocktail fans.
The introduction of ready-to-drink craft cocktails first appeared in 32-oz. offerings. Met with overwhelming success, Wild Leap then began experimenting with hand-filling 12-oz. cans, using an existing beer canning line to seal the containers. This round of cocktails was met with even bigger success, but the concern from the start was the shelf-life of the beverages.
“Because our fresh cocktails are intended to be consumed within seven to 10 days, they’re made with fresh ingredients and hand-pressed juices,” said General Manager Brittany Knecht. “Fortunately, we were already working with a team of beverage experts to extend the shelf-life of our cocktails to fully serve our vodka cocktail fans while maintaining all-natural ingredients, so the process was already underway when COVID hit, we just sped it up… a lot!”
Every Wild Leap Ready-To-Drink Premium Vodka Cocktail is made with natural flavors and ingredients. Strawberry Mango cocktail features strawberry, mango and lemon, while the Creamsicle Mojito cocktail has orange, mint and lime. They are available at your favorite retailers throughout Georgia as well as for curbside pickup at the brewery.
