Seattle, Wash. (September 14, 2017) – DRY Sparkling, creator of beautifully refreshing, culinary-inspired sodas, today announced the expanded national distribution of limited-edition 750 mL Celebration Bottles of Ginger and Cranberry DRY Sparkling to select Kroger, Cost Plus/World Market, BevMo stores, plus several regional chains and specialty stores. Attendees of the 2017 Natural Products Expo East trade show are invited to experience these festive bottles and flavors and meet with the DRY Sparkling team, including CEO and Founder, Sharelle Klaus, at booth #8820 at the Baltimore Convention Center, September 14-16.
“I started DRY because I believed people deserved a better soda – and I also believe people deserve a better holiday go-to beverage today. As consumers increasingly seek healthier products around this time of year, we’re excited to offer a beautiful alternative to sugar-loaded ciders and traditional sodas,” stated Sharelle Klaus, CEO/Founder of DRY Sparkling. “After a successful test of these limited edition celebration bottles last year, we’re bringing them to several new national retailers in 2017 and we’re on track to sell four times more than in 2016. Cranberry and Ginger are easily two of the holiday season’s most iconic flavors, and these white-wrapped gold-topped bottles are meant to be eye-catching, festive and fun.”
Both Ginger DRY Sparkling and Cranberry DRY Sparkling offer a refreshingly less-sweet alternative to high-calorie holiday ciders and typical sodas. Each variety is delicious on its own, paired with a meal or mixed into cocktails. The festive white and gold 750 mL bottle is the perfect addition to any table top or bar cart and also makes a fabulous host or hostess gift.
Like all DRY Sparkling beverages, Ginger and Cranberry DRY Sparkling sodas are made with four simple ingredients, including a touch of cane sugar, allowing the true flavors of the botanicals to shine through. DRY Sparkling beverages are Non-GMO Project Verified, caffeine-free, gluten-free, OU certified kosher, and sodium-free. Additional details include:
- GINGER DRY SPARKLING: Bold, spicy, and festive, Ginger DRY Sparkling contains roughly 70 percent less calories and sugar than ginger beers and ginger ales. It pairs beautifully with pot roast, bacon, brussels sprouts, sweet potatoes and sweet treats like snickerdoodles or carrot cake. Ginger DRY Sparkling also serves as a superb mixer for cocktails made with whiskey or vodka.
- CRANBERRY DRY SPARKLING: Cranberry DRY Sparkling is perfectly tart, merry, and bright, and contains 95 fewer calories and 22 fewer grams of sugar per 8 oz. serving than sparkling cider. The unmistakable flavor profile of cranberry is perfect alongside roasted turkey and spiral ham, or with other festive dishes like mashed potatoes, latkes, baked brie or cheesecake. Cranberry DRY Sparkling also mixes nicely into seasonal vodka and champagne cocktails.
These festive holiday bottles will be rolling out to stores across the country in November with a suggested retail price of $4.99 each. For more information, food pairing ideas and craft cocktail inspiration, please visit www.drysparkling.com.
