Salt Flats Spirits Launches Utah’s first Bartender Designed Canned Cocktails
Salt Flats Spirits, the distilling division of the Equiwest Hospitality Group whom also owns Salt Flats Brewery; is announcing the release of it’s first five “Bartender To Go”TM ready-to-drink canned cocktails.
Spirits’ initial offerings will include its:
LONG ISLAND ICED TEA CUBA LIBRE STURGIS LEMONADE TEQUILA SUNRISE
Each handcrafted cocktail is gluten-free, malt free and what one would experience in taste and alcohol content from a professionally mixed bar drink. “Our Bartender To GoTM cocktails are the only canned cocktails in the market that have been derived from owning and operating bars. Listening to our customers about what they want and how they want it results in our cocktails tasting as if you were to order them in an upscale bar.” said Jeremy Ford, director of operations for the Equiwest Hospitality Group. “The Bartender To Go cocktails are the culmination of 10 years of being in the bar business at our restaurant Toscano. Toscano is where the craft of our mixologists
has been married with the premium liquors produced by Salt Flats Spirits to produce a real-to-the-taste mixed drink in a ready- to-go container,” said Jeremy Ford, director of operations for the Equiwest Hospitality Group. Our “Bartender To GoTM” cocktails are the only canned premium cocktails. We learned from our customers what they wanted and how they wanted it and we went to work creating cocktails that taste just like they are made in an upscale bar” added Ford.
Salt Flats Spirits owner Steve Pruitt spawned the vision to bring ready- to-drink premium cocktails to the market as an extension of the company’s distilled spirits library that produces its 622 Vodka, Parabolica Light Rum, Bonneville Bourbon, GT Gin and La Baja Tequila.
The Kentucky Mule uses bourbon instead of vodka for our twist on the popular mule cocktail. The Sturgis lemonade pays a bourbon homage to an easy rider mecca. The Tequila Sunrise serves up the tequila with orange and cranberry juices. The Long Island, a forbidden cocktail under State liquor laws due to its use of four liquors, contains them all as it was originally conceived in the 1920s. The Cuba Libre is our classic rum and house made cola with lime juice. Each cocktail is made using Salt Flats Spirits’ own premium spirits.
All five cocktails are now available for purchase at Utah State Liquor stores as well as the Spirits’ package agency at the distillery located at 2020 West Industrial Circle in Salt Lake City.
