Cathead Distillery Adds to RTD Lineup

Just in time for the warmer days ahead, Jackson, Mississippi-based Cathead Distillery announced the launch of Cathead Sparkling Grapefruit, the newest addition to its line of ready-to-drink sparkling vodka sodas. Joining the canned cocktail lineup of four original flavors: Cranberry, Limeade, Satsuma Mandarin, and Strawberry Lemonade, Cathead Sparkling Grapefruit is crafted with the brand’s flagship spirit: Cathead Vodka, alongside sparkling mineral water and a hint of sweet, yet bitter grapefruit. As of today, Cathead Sparkling Grapefruit 4-packs are available for pre-order via Cathead Distillery’s online store, and will also be available in stores in nine states (Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and South Carolina) later this month.

As the first and oldest legal distillery in the state of Mississippi, Cathead Distillery was founded in 2010 by friends and blues fans Austin Evans and Richard Patrick. With an award-winning portfolio of six small-batch spirits, including the first and only Honeysuckle flavored vodka and Chicory Liqueur, the Cathead team is excited to expand the distillery’s line of canned cocktails with the debut of Sparkling Grapefruit. 

“Since the launch of the Cathead Sparkling’s core four flavors last April, we have received so much positive feedback that we knew it was time to expand the line,” said Richard Patrick, co-founder of Cathead Distillery, in a press release. “Grapefruit was one of the most-asked-for flavors from our brand fans so we couldn’t be more thrilled to make that ask a reality, and can’t wait to continue innovating and launching more Cathead Sparkling flavors in the near future.”  

Like the existing lineup, Cathead Sparkling Grapefruit is available in a 12oz. slim can and is made from all-natural ingredients with no added sugars or artificial sweeteners. The new, ready-to-drink cocktail has 100 calories, 0g carbs, 5% ABV, and is lightly effervescent. Hand-selected by founders Richard and Austin after months of research and taste testing, Sparkling Grapefruit features citrus notes of semi-sweet, bitter grapefruit. 

Unlike hard seltzers on the market, Cathead Sparkling is made from real vodka—not malt liquor—producing a clean and easy-to-drink cocktail with a truly authentic fruit flavor that’s not overly sweet.

“With the first day of spring right around the corner, it is our hope that this new flavor will provide our Cathead Sparkling fanatics—and those seeking out a great tasting canned cocktail—with yet another grab-and-go option for all of life’s adventures, whether mountainside or at the beach.” 

Cathead Sparkling Grapefruit is now available in a four pack for a suggested retail price of $9.99 at select retailers in AL, AR, FL, GA, LA, MS, SC, and TN and via pre-order via the Cathead Distillery online store. To learn more about Cathead Distillery and its collection of award-winning spirits, please visit
