Kentucky brewer capitalizes on spiked canned beverage trend

Canned cocktails and spiked beverages are all the rage and one Kentucky company is getting in on the trend. Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. has developed a new offering: Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Hard Tea.

Available in March, it’s an all-natural tea with a hint of citrus that has spent time in recently emptied bourbon barrels. It comes in three flavors – originalpeach and half-and-half, which is mixed with lemonade. The convenience of coming in packaged six-packs is part of the appeal. These are no-mess, convenient cocktails you can enjoy at home. (ABV is 5.2).

“Consumers are moving toward flavor-forward, convenient beverages,” said Niall Little, VP of Sales for Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. in a news release. “We wanted to deliver a drink that tells the story of Kentucky as we continue to develop our barrel-aged portfolio.”

Lexington Brewing & Distilling Co. is known for its flagship beer, Kentucky Bourbon Barrel Ale, seasonal barrel-aged beer offerings and Town Branch bourbons.
