Adding to its lineup of award-winning canned cocktails, Dogfish Head announced the release of Grapefruit & Pomegranate Vodka Crush and the Crush Variety Pack, an eight-pack of 12-ounce cans complete with four distinct canned cocktails, including a new variety pack exclusive recipe, the Pineapple & Orange Rum Crush. Both the Crush Variety Pack and four-pack of 12-ounce cans of Grapefruit & Pomegranate Vodka Crush are now hitting shelves nationwide.
Drawing inspiration from its coastal Delaware roots, Dogfish Head’s Crush Canned Cocktails are an off-centered take on the Delmarva (Delaware, Maryland Virginia) region’s renowned Crush cocktail, which features a choice of vodka, rum or gin topped with freshly ‘crushed’ fruit juice.
“Here in Delaware, we sit deep in the heart of ‘Crush’ country. In fact, the crush cocktail was invented just a couple miles down the road from our Milton brewery and distillery,” said Dogfish Head Founder, Sam Calagione. “It’s awesome to share one of our area’s most well-known traditions with drinkers from coast-to-coast, and it’s in the convenience of a can. No shaker or, in this case, fruit-juicer needed!”
The launch of Dogfish Head’s Grapefruit & Pomegranate Vodka Crush and Crush Variety Pack bring its already expansive lineup of ready-to-drink Canned Cocktails to seven unique libations. Artfully showcasing the brand’s 20+ years of distilling and mixology experience, each Canned Cocktail clocks in at 7.0% ABV, contains two full-proof shots of Dogfish Head Distilling Co. spirits and features a bevy of real culinary ingredients. Dogfish Head’s Canned Cocktails are currently growing at +56%*, swiftly outpacing the booming spirits-based Canned Cocktail segment.
