Ogden’s Own, an award-winning leading distiller of craft spirits and the largest independently owned distillery in the state of Utah, has doubled the size of its recently-released canned cocktail line with the debut of two new varietals – Porter’s Huckleberry Lemonade and Porter’s Peach Tea.
Both new canned cocktails are made with the distillery’s fan-favorite Porter’s Whiskey liqueur and blended with fresh-brewed, all-natural lemonade and iced tea.
Porter’s Huckleberry Lemonade is blend of Porter’s Huckleberry whiskey liqueur and lightly carbonated lemonade. The expression is carried by flavors of Northwest huckleberries which blend with lemonade, delivering fruit-forward flavor that balances tartness and sweetness. 7% ABV for a 355ml can.
Porter’s Peach Tea meanwhile is blend of Porter’s Peach whiskey liqueur and unsweetened tea that offers a twist on the familiar. The unsweetened tea reaches a perfect sweetness when blended with the peach flavor of Porter’s, making for a warm weather treat. 7% ABV for a 355ml can.
These new expressions will join Ogden’s Own’s recently launched Five Wives Vodka canned cocktails in the lineup and are now officially available for sale at the Ogden’s Own Distillery Store at 615 W. Stockman Way. Expanded distribution to Ogden’s Own customers nationwide via the brand’s retail and online partners is expected in the coming weeks.
Since its inception in 2009, Ogden’s Own has carved out a unique path by delivering unexpected offerings to the market while also remaining nimble enough to respond directly to shifting consumer demands and trends. Porter’s Whiskeys have long been the gold standard to illustrate Ogden’s Own’s willingness to take risks through experimentation with bold, unconventional flavor profiles, with examples such as Porter’s Fire Cinnamon Whiskey, last year’s award-winning Porter’s Peanut Butter Whiskey, and the naturally flavored, sweet-but-not-sugary Porter’s Huckleberry and Peach.
In a further nod to experimentation, the packaging of the new canned cocktails even feature a rejuvenated version of the namesake mascot of the Porter’s whiskey line, Orrin Porter Rockwell.
“When we first launched our canned cocktails line earlier this year with Five Wives Moscow Mule and Five Wives Vodka Soda, we knew they’d be a hit and always intended to expand the portfolio. We’re thrilled to be doing that now with the release of Porter’s Huckleberry Lemonade and Porter’s Peach Tea,” said Steve Conlin, CEO and co-founder of Ogden’s Own Distillery.
“Porter’s Whiskeys have long been the vessel with which we can express our creativity when it comes to outside the box flavor experimentation. We know our fans better than anyone, and we’re certain that they’ll love these new additions to the family as the perfect complement to their upcoming outdoor sipping occasions and summertime enjoyment.”
