California craft spirits distiller Rod & Hammer’s SLO Stills recently launched a new line of ready-to-drink canned cocktails, joining their lineup of spirits sold throughout the state.
Rod & Hammer’s SLO Stills’ canned whiskey cocktails clock in at 22 proof and come ready to drink straight out of the can – no mixing necessary.
A prepared statement from the craft distiller said the canned cocktails are made with all-natural ingredients and Rod & Hammer’s SLO Stills whiskey that’s “cut with the Pacific” using purified ocean water.
They have what’s described as unique variations on traditional cocktails such as Whiskey Margarita, Whiskey Mule, and a Whiskey Paloma.
The new cocktails are crafted and canned at Rod & Hammer’s SLO Stills’ distillery in San Luis Obispo, California. It was founded when Rodney “Rod” Cegelski, a California surfer, met Hamish “Hammer” Marshall, an Aussie jackaroo, and a friendship emerged over a shared appreciation of quality spirits and the Central Coast.
The distillery was natural offshoot for Marshall, a beer-loving Aussie who purchased the long-standing California brewery SLO Brew in 2010.
“We wanted to give classic cocktails a bit of a whiskey twist,” said co-founder Cegelski. “Their full strength and handcrafted with our whiskey for a proper cocktail on the go.”
