Lee Spirits’ Four Ready-To-Drink Canned Cocktails Earn Awards During the 2020 Canned Challenge
World’s first professional beverage competition for canned adult beverages
Colorado Springs/Monument, Colo. – December, 16, 2020 – Lee Spirits Company a leading distiller of award-winning pre-prohibition American dry gin, flavored gins, fine liqueurs, whiskey, vodka and ready to drink (RTD) cocktails, is pleased to announce all four of its ready to drink canned cocktails earned awards at the first annual 2020 Canned Challenge.
The Canned Challenge works to define excellence in Canned Adult Beverages. All entries were tasted double-blind by a panel of beverage professionals, sommeliers, and trade members.
Lee Spirits Canned Challenge awards:
- Fuego Lemonade (Gold)
- Strawberry Ginger Lemonade (Silver)
- Whiskey Lemonade (Silver)
- Lavender Lemonade (Silver)
“We are overwhelmed by the industry-wide recognition our RTD cocktails are receiving across the state of Colorado and the nation,” said Nick Lee, Co-Founder of Lee Spirits. “We are delighted to offer a product consumers are enjoying so much and are grateful for the recognition from the judges participating in the 2020 Canned Challenge.”
Lee Spirits’ Fuego Lemonade combines the flavors of the distiller’s one-of-a-kind peppery and spicy spirit Ginfuego, with refreshing lemonade. The canned cocktail is delicious over ice and is equally as refreshing right from the can.
The company’s Whiskey Lemonade combines 5-year Kentucky whiskey blended perfectly with lemonade and is tasty when enjoyed on-the-rocks or from the can.
Lee Spirits canned Lavender Gin cocktail features the organization’s popular Lavender Gin and is balanced perfectly with refreshing lemonade and can be served on ice or is equally delicious fresh out of the refrigerator and consumed right from the can. The company’s Strawberry Gin cocktail contains Lee Spirits wildly popular Strawberry Ginger Gin and is balanced perfectly with the sweet tang of lemonade and is equally thirst-quenching either over ice or from the can. The two products helped Lee Spirits earn the title Colorado’s ‘Ready to Drink’ distillery of the year by the 2020 New York International Spirit Competition in August, 2020.
Each of Lee Spirits canned cocktail flavors are 9% AVB and are offered in 4-packs as well as in variety packs and available at retail outlets that sell spirits across Colorado and Nebraska.
