Grand Rapids-based Long Road Distillers first announced their canned cocktails in 2020 - which came at just the right time, with more folks spending time at home during the pandemic.

Since then, they say the products have really gained in popularity and Long Road has been coming up new ways to meet demand and improve up on the canned cocktails.

Long Road is now partnering with Kalamazoo-based Imperial Beverage to distribute the canned cocktails to bars, restaurants, and retailers throughout Michigan. You should be able to find them on store shelves as of February 1, 2023.

To start, Long Road will have three products with their initial launch, all canned at 7% alcohol by volume:

  • The Polish Falcon – the distillery’s version of a Moscow mule, featuring Long Road Original Vodka, lemongrass ginger beer, and lime.
  • Lavender Lemonade – based off a longtime tasting room favorite, Teta’s Lemonade, featuring Long Road Original Vodka, lavender, rosewater and lemon.
  • Rosemary Gin Fizz – a brand new offering, featuring Long Road Dry Gin, rosemary, grapefruit, lemon and a hint of salt.

Jon O’Connor, co-owner and co-founder of Long Road Distillers, said in a release,

We’re very excited about this growth opportunity with our canned cocktails. The category is outpacing all others and with a few adjustments to the formulas and our production schedule, we’re confident this will be a big part of our business going forward.

Soon, we may see some of the other canned cocktails Long Road has served at their distilleries in stores across the state.
