Three cans of 23rd St. Distillery ready to drink flavours sitting in front of some fresh fruit

Summer Sensations

We love 23rd Street Distillery and have been drinking their canned G&Ts, that have no sugar, for ages. So you can only imagine how delighted we were when we heard about their new line-up of three delicious sparkling RTD flavours. Inspired by the taste of sweet escapes and endless summer days, the range is bursting with flavour and meets the demand for those seeking delicious drinks with no effort required.

Their three great flavours include:

Tropical Gin & Soda: bright, juicy tropical fruit flavours of mango, pineapple, passionfruit and finger lime are mixed with soda water to create a perfectly balanced, sparkling drink. It’s the taste of summer all year round. Can artwork by Rebecca Mills, WA.

Pomegranate & Raspberry With Australian Vodka: luscious, sweet and sparkling, pomegranate from 23rd Street’s own orchard is blended with juicy raspberry and award-winning, Australian vodka for a bursting berry sensation. Can artwork by Billie Justice Thomson, SA.

Pineapple & Lime With Australian Vodka: juicy pineapple mingles with zesty lime to create a vivacious duo that’s balanced with award-winning, Australian vodka. Sparkling in nature and sweet in taste, a refreshing tropical escape awaits. Can artwork by Rebecca Mills, WA.

Served in 300mL cans, 23rd Street RTD Cocktails are 5% ABV and are available in a 4-pack ($25.00) and 24-pack carton ($142.00) from national retailers across the country, including First Choice Liquor, Vintage Cellars, Liquorland and via Sippify.

Cocktails reimagined

Cocktails By Vok are the new-comers that are perfect for summer. Proof that you don’t have to sacrifice well-crafted, crazy-good flavour for portability, save yourself the trouble of mixing drinks and take your happy hour al fresco instead.

Arriving with three new flavours that are all about vibrant expressions and embracing the kitsch. From sparkling Pina Colada that infuses coconut and tangy pineapple, to the sweet orange and fleshy peach of Sex On The Beach, and Raspberry Ripple, which no-joke tastes like raspberry swirl ice-cream (and yes, it’s as tasty as it sounds); the nostalgic-inspired concoctions deliver a taste profile that’s bursting with deliciousness.

With an easy 4.0% ABV, Cocktails By Vok’s three great flavours include:

Pina Colada: Vok’s Pina Colada takes you to the tropics all year round. Decadent coconut, tangy pineapple juice and premium Australian rum combine to create a lighter, brighter and more refreshing take on the beach-side classic. Cans are easier to drink out of than coconuts.

Raspberry Ripple: Inspired by the iconic combination of decadent vanilla, injected with bright, raspberry syrup; Vok’s Raspberry Ripple Cocktail is a tantalising blend of sweet and tart flavour. Sweet raspberry, vodka and smooth vanilla are expertly blended to create a vibrant, fun and fruity drink.

Sex On The Beach: A convenient twist on an all-time classic cocktail; Sex On The Beach is a vibrant, zinging blend of Australian vodka, peach liqueur, orange and cranberry juices. Sweet fleshy peach and orange citrus flavour are cut through with tangy, tart cranberry.

As Australia’s insatiable taste for the RTD category continues to grow, Cocktails by Vok are the ultimate on-the-go drinks that bring all of the taste without the fuss.

The 250mL cans are available in a 4-pack ($18.99) and 24-pack carton ($99) at Dan Murphy’s, Sippify, BoozeBud (online and in-store), independent retailers across the country and VOK.

Over the past few years, Aussies and people across the globe have fallen in love with Batch & Co’s hugely popular wine based Spritz range, which are a are unique and are a fantastic alternative to beer, wine and champagne.

The Bondi Spritz – This vibrant spritz has hints of guava & strawberry fruit notes which compliments the dry Rosé

The Brighton Spritz – This refreshing spritz is an all-day pick me up combining the perfect balance of pear and fig balanced back with a Pinot Grigio.

Flamingo Moscato, from Million Wines is a soft and subtle floral blush, with gentle hints of citrus and honeysuckle that surface in every mouthful. Made from Frontignac grapes grown in the scenic Eden Valley, this Moscato delivers lifted floral aromas of citrus fruits. The palate is lightly structured with tropical notes of guava, lychee and rose petals, balanced with a crisp acid line and natural sweetness. Beads of bubbles tickling the palate providing a sophisticated yet playful, sparkling Moscato. A beautiful ‘frizzante’ style wine to be enjoyed at any occasion.
