New Canned Cocktail Wins in Ready-To-Drink Classic Cocktail Category, Over 110 Entrants
Atlanta, GA – Post Meridiem Spirit Co., a brand founded on the principles of authenticity, transparency, and uncompromising quality, has yet again proven they hold the recipe for success. Post Meridiem is excited to announce that after winning a Double Gold for their newest addition, The Into the Night Espresso Martini, the cocktail has been awarded Best of Class for the Classic RTD Cocktail category at the 2022 San Francisco World Spirit Competition, the most prestigious competition in the industry.
Surpassing over 110 other entrants, Post Meridiem’s Espresso Martini found itself up against one other finalist in the category- its own Double Old Fashioned, before taking home the spirit industry’s most prestigious accolade. The ‘coffeehouse meets cocktail bar’ beverage is made with a blend of vodka, coffee liqueur, and 100% Arabica cold brew coffee- with naturally occurring caffeine for a rich, expertly balanced, and delicious drink that is at once energizing and intoxicating. Like each of their cocktails, this on-trend addition to the Post Meridiem cocktail line is produced exclusively in Atlanta with 100% real ingredients at the proper proportions.
“Our Espresso Martini was a challenging cocktail to develop – it took two years to get it right,” says Post Meridiem Spirit Company co-founder Andrew Rodbell. “It’s not often you are recognized as the world’s best at anything. It’s amazing and humbling validation that real ingredients do taste better, and our no-compromise approach is what sets us apart.”
Post Meridiem, Atlanta’s Hometown Cocktail Company, is currently accepting pre-orders for the Espresso Martini through its website, www.postmeridiemspirits.com, with expectations of delivery starting July 15th. The Espresso Martini will also be available for purchase directly from their production facility in Atlanta, GA before widespread distribution in late July.
The Into the Night Espresso Martini joins the already available, award-winning canned cocktail lineup including: The Real Lime Juice Margarita, The Double Old Fashioned, The Modern Classic Cosmopolitan, The London Dry Southside, The Lemongrass Vodka Gimlet, The 1944 Mai Tai, and The No. Four Daiquiri.
The full lineup is also available for direct-to-consumer shipping to 28 states via the brand’s website. Post Meridiem Spirit Company is located at 1209 Logan Circle NW, Atlanta, GA 30318. For more information, visit postmeridiemspirits.com
