Drink Spotlight: Tinto Amorío launches new Spanish Wine Cocktail in response to shifting millennial consumption habits

 

NEW YORK, Oct. 20, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Tinto Amorío announced today that it is releasing its first sparkling wine cocktail - Red Wine of the Summer™ - with limited availability in New York and online. The brand was created in response to a shift in millennial consumption habits in the alcoholic beverage and wine categories. Their first flavor is based on a Spanish wine cocktail - Tinto de Verano – which originated in Cordoba, Spain in the early 1900s. The flavor is in a new cocktail category – sparkling wine cocktails – and features a low-calorie profile, natural ingredients, and a refreshing lemon spritz.

"We are excited to get Tinto into the hands of millennial consumers," said Anish Patel, CEO & Founder of Tinto Amorío. "Millennials have started to shift consumption habits towards products that have an authentic story and deliver an experience. We already know they want more sparkling beverages, natural and low-calorie options, as well as premium products, but they also crave something that's new, and something that they can talk about and believe in. We check all of those boxes. Tinto Amorío is as much a conversation piece and experience, as it is a phenomenal product. We aren't just packaging wine in a can as most of the industry is trending towards. The only innovation in canned wine is in the packaging. We are introducing a brand-new cocktail category, flavor profile, and authentic experience to consumers who are looking to get to know brands and products on a more intimate level."

Tinto Amorío is committed to staying true to its Spanish wine cocktail origins as it discusses the story behind Tinto de Verano and its origins at the hands of Federico Vargas. Vargas operated an establishment, The Brilliante, where artists and bohemians found refuge on their travels through Cordoba in the early 1900s. He blended a mix of red wine with lemon soda pop for his patrons, which soon came to be known as: "Tinto de Verano" or Red Wine of the Summer. A legacy began at The Brilliante that spread like wildfire through Spain, and made Tinto de Verano into a household name.

Anish was first introduced to Tinto de Verano and other Spanish wine cocktails while in Cádiz, Spain, and knew they were the perfect response to shifting millennial consumptions habits back home in the states. A true labor of love, Tinto Amorío took 7 months and countless iterations to formulate their Red Wine of the Summer™. They were passionate about making sure it tasted perfect and that it wasn't just another commercially viable wine product, but one that was true to its roots. Red Wine of the Summer™ is translated from "Tinto de Verano" however the semi-sweet taste profile of this sparkling red wine cocktail is a perfect blend to be enjoyed year-round. "The flavor profile is complex enough that it draws you in and captures your attention, but it is also simple enough that you can distinguish hints of lemon and citrus. It's not another summer party drink; it's a finely crafted wine cocktail," described Anish.

Tinto Amorío also has a commitment to social responsibility and is donating a portion of every sale directly to causes in the community. Each production run is dedicated to a new cause with their 2017 run being dedicated to the Children's Hospital of LA.

Red Wine of the Summer™ is available in 4-packs for a suggested retail price of $20. Tinto's first cocktail is 110 calories, made with Natural Ingredients, and with No Artificial Flavors, Sweeteners, or Preservatives. It's also Gluten Free.

Industry News: emoji-inspired Cocktail Recipes for National Melon Day 8/14

 

 

While emoji have become a part of daily communication for millions of people, many don't understand how to use these expressive icons. Like emoji, Midori, The Original Melon Liqueur, is often misunderstood - many consumers don't know about its infusion of premium Japanese melons (like the one on the emoji keyboard - or how to creatively cocktail with our vibrant green liqueur - and we're out to fix that!

In recognition of *National Melon Day (8/14)*, we worked with Emojipedia.org founder and emoji expert, Jeremy Burge, to develop an interactive quiz to challenge consumers' perceptions of the most popular, but misunderstood emoji. And the results are pretty surprising!

Take a look at a few of the results from our quiz and rethink your cocktail this *National Melon Day* with one of our emoji-inspired recipes

"Look of Triumph" - 90% of respondents didn't know this actually expresses "victory."

"Savoring Delicious Food" - 79% of those who responded didn't guess that this emoji represented tasting something yummy!

"Tears of Joy" - 50% didn't realize this expression is happy! P.S. it was also the 2015 Word of the Year.

About Cruzan® Rum
Named for the people of St. Croix (Crucians), Cruzan® Rum is synonymous with the spirit of the island whose unpretentious and authentic lifestyle proves that life -- like our rum -- is more enjoyable when you embrace The Don't Hurry™ and sit back, relax and take things one sip at a time. The Nelthropp family, who has called St. Croix home for eight generations and runs the distillery to this day, crafts each of its rums with natural ingredients and a five-column distillation process. Cruzan® also touts one of the cleanest-tasting rums in the industry -- a characteristic derived from crafting a spirit with low levels of fusel oils, a by-product of the distillation process which, if not removed, can taint the smell and taste of the rum. www.cruzanrum.com

About Basil Hayden
In 1796, Master Distiller Basil Hayden Sr. broke 'the rules' by mixing small grains into the mash of a traditional corn base. A Maryland transplant unafraid to stand out amidst the residing establishment, Basil conjectured that the spicy flavor of rye would be a striking complement to the sweet smoothness of corn in his distillery's standard bourbon. And much to the chagrin of the traditionalist set, Basil was right. His recipe was a masterpiece, resulting in a unique, singular small batch bourbon whiskey that was blessed with rich hints of peppermint, notes of pepper, slight citrus overtones, and a spicy, warming finish.

Artfully aged at a relatively mild 80 proof, Basil Hayden's® is as novel and delectable a bourbon whiskey as it was when the master distiller rolled out his first barrel over 200 years ago. Marked by a rich cascade of aromas and flavors, Basil Hayden's® is still a small batch bourbon, but with broader appeal. And just as it was in 1796, the only 'rule' to enjoying our Kentucky straight bourbon whiskey is that it should be done responsibly.  Read More

Bully Boy Distillers Releases The Bottled Old Fashioned

 

Boston’s Premier Craft Distillery Releases First Ever

Limited-Edition Seasonal Recipe

 

Boston, MA; September 29, 2015 – Bully Boy Distillers today announces the launch of The Old Fashioned, a new take on the classic cocktail. As longtime fans of the iconic libation, the Willis brothers behind Bully Boy have applied their craft spirit artistry and love of whiskey to what they respectfully consider to be the best Old Fashioned recipe—not too sweet, not too dry and with enough bitters to create perfect harmony in a glass—available now as a seasonal release.

 

“In concept, the Old Fashioned is easy to make but we’ve found that they’re actually hard to make well,” said Dave Willis, co-founder of Bully Boy Distillers. “It’s difficult to achieve that perfect ratio of whiskey, sugar and bitters, but that’s exactly what we’ve done with the Bully Boy Old Fashioned. By releasing a bottled version of the quintessential craft cocktail, we’re hoping to give drink enthusiasts a simple, no-fuss way to serve or enjoy a perfectly delicious Old Fashioned.”

Using Bully Boy’s award-winning American Straight Whiskey as the base, the Old Fashioned is hand crafted
