Cutwater Spirits has launched a new White Russian canned cocktail, the 19th release in its ready-to-drink lineup. The White Russian features Cutwater Vodka with house-made coffee cream liqueur.
Earlier this year, test batches of White Russian were served exclusively in the Cutwater Tasting Room & Kitchen as part of Cutwater’s “R&D” program that allows guests to sample new products in development. It was an instant fan-favorite and an overnight bestseller. Now a full-time Cutwater release, it is hitting store shelves everywhere, just in time for the holidays and winter season. Described by the brand as, “Smooth and sippable,” it offers irresistible notes of vanilla ice cream, freshly brewed coffee, rich mocha and a hint of waffle cone.
“When we came up with the fun idea of making a White Russian in a can, we set out to create something totally different than anything else out there in the Ready to Drink format,” says Master Distiller and Co-Founder, Yuseff Cherney. “This is exactly the drink you want in your hand this winter, and tastes especially awesome when you’re wearing your favorite bathrobe.”
Cherney oversees the production of all 19 Cutwater canned cocktails as well as 21 different bottled spirits across nearly every spirit category including Tequila, Vodka, rum, Gin and Whiskey. To create Cutwater’s canned cocktails, Cherney works closely with Gwen Conley, Director of Quality and Innovation. The team uses Cutwater’s own spirits and high-quality ingredients along with sensory science and masterful blending to make their products.
Bottled at 14% ABV, the Cutwater Spirits White Russian is a year-round offering now available at retailers nationwide for the price of $12.99 per 4-pack. It contains dairy and is gluten-free.
Last month, Cutwater Spirits introduced Cutwater Tequila Anejo. The new offering is the latest addition to the San Diego distillery’s lineup. The distillery debuted Cutwater Tequila Blanco in October 2019, followed by a Reposado in January 2020. The Reposado recently took home awards, including Tequila of the Year, Best in Class and Gold at London Spirits Competition.
