PRESS RELEASE / April 9, 2020 (NANTUCKET, MA) – Triple Eight Distillery is excited to have some good news to announce with the launch of Nantucket Craft Cocktails. After a few years of experimenting on Nantucket, Triple Eight introduces Nantucket Cran and Nantucket Blue. Nantucket Cran and Nantucket Blue are made from Triple Eight’s top selling vodkas and blended into a clean, refreshing, ready-to-drink cocktail. They are a wonderful representation of the unique and flavorful cocktails which grace the drink chalkboards in the distillery bar on-island at the “Brewery”.
Nantucket Cran and Nantucket Blue are made with 100% real VODKA from Triple Eight Distillery and flavored with natural cranberry, blueberry and lemon flavors. These carbonated ready-to-drink cocktails are 4.44% abv and 100% Gluten Free.
“This might be the most challenging time to launch a new product in history. However, with all the doom and gloom, it’s actually nice to talk about something new, fun, exciting & refreshing like a craft cocktail in a can. We have been experimenting with these recipes and trying them on all our customers for the past 20 years. We finally narrowed it down and took our top selling drinks from the distillery cocktail list, Nantucket Blue and Nantucket Cran and packaged them to go in a can.” – Jay Harman, President of Triple Eight Distillery and Nantucket Craft Cocktails
Nantucket Craft Cocktails are a terrific way to bring the vibe of Nantucket to the beach or your back deck. This initial product launch will include retailers throughout MA, CT and RI.
