For those who have sipped a tasty cocktail at You & Yours Distilling Co.’s East Village tasting room, you now have an easy way to tote along their spirits to your next beach picnic or concert in the park. Tomorrow marks the official release of their new line of canned cocktails, which sees You & Yours joining the still-small contingent of craft distilleries occupying the ready-to-drink market.
Using their flagship spirits, the debut can lineup includes the Gin & Tonic made with You & Yours’ Sunday Gin and the Cranberry Vodka Soda using signature Y&Y Vodka. A drink that was served at its tasting room, a Vodka Mule made with peach bitters, has also made its way into cans. The suggested retail price is $14.99 for a four-pack of 12-ounce cans. Co-founder and head distillery Laura Johnson and co-founder and CMO Luke Mahoney, who are launching a new warehouse facility that will be production central for the canned cocktails and house a future beer and wine garden, say that they expect to eventually expand the core offerings with seasonal releases.
The canned cocktails will be available at the distillery’s tasting room starting Wednesday, October 17, with distribution throughout California launching on October 30.
