A Philadelphia-based distillery has launched a new line of ready-to-drink cocktails in a can.

Robert Cassell of New Liberty Distillery has launched the new beverages under his newest brand, American Liquor Company.

The line includes Sparkling Vodka Lemonade, Gin & Tonic, Margarita, Vodka Soda and Orange Crush.

The beverages come in four packs of 355ml slim cans. They are 8% ABV, start at 156 calories and retail for $9.99 to $13.99.

“We set out with one goal in mind, to make delicious, ready-to-drink cocktails for any occasion with real ingredients,” said Cassell. “Kinsey Whiskey is made for sipping on the rocks and the Sparkling Vodka Lemonade is made for something different. They are both delicious, but the Canned Cocktails are going in my cooler this summer to be enjoyed by the water.”

Cassell said he wanted to make “an approachable, affordable, grab-and-go canned beverage option made with real ingredients ideal for enjoying outdoors. Made and canned locally at New Liberty Distillery in the Kensington neighborhood of Philadelphia, the Canned Cocktails are delicious straight from the can, poured over ice, or as a base for simple additions such as lime or cranberry.“

The distiller said the canned cocktails are available across Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, new Jersey and Delaware and can be ordered online and shipped in Pa.

The Sparkling Vodka Lemonade includes real lemon juice.

The Gin & Tonic is “a mix of Pittsburgh’s craft-made Red Ribbon Tonic Water with scratch-made gin.”

The Margarita includes just three ingredients – tequila, triple sec and lime juice.

Vodka Soda has two ingredients and Orange Crush includes vodka, soda water and orange.
