GUELPH, Ont., April 26, 2018 -- Tart it up this summer with Gin Fusion Sparkling Lemon Cocktail, the latest delicious thirst-quencher from Dixon’s Distilled Spirits.
The award-winning craft distiller is pleased to announce that its new lemon-flavoured gin beverage (LCBO # 554014) is now available at LCBO stores across Ontario.
A crisp and refreshing blend of Dixon’s Wicked Gin and pure, sparkling water naturally flavoured with lemon, Gin Fusion Sparkling Lemon Cocktail is a delicious low-sugar alternative to syrupy-sweet coolers.
“We’re excited to be working with the LCBO to meet the growing demand for ready-to-drink cocktails that are less sweet and have fewer calories,” says Dixon’s co-founder Jeremie (JD) Dixon, explaining that Gin Fusion Sparkling Lemon has half the sugar found in most coolers. “Today’s consumers still love a good drink but they’re more health conscious and they’re also choosing high-quality, locally-made products more often.”
Founded in 2013, Dixon’s Distilled Spirits uses Ontario-grown grain to produce a variety of hand-crafted gin, vodka and whisky products. Gin Fusion Sparkling Lemon is their second entry into the cooler segment, building on the success of the original Gin Fusion — made from Dixon’s gin flavoured with ginger, cucumber, mint and lime — which was introduced last year.
Dixon’s no-nonsense focus on flavour and craftsmanship continues to win over fans with a taste for artisanal, small-batch spirits. It’s also earning kudos from the industry. This spring, Dixon’s Flaming Caesar Vodka was awarded best Canadian vodka in the Flavoured Vodka category at the 2018 World Vodka Awards. Plus, Dixon’s Wicked Licorice Gin and Wicked Citrus Gin were both winners at the 2018 World Gin Awards: Wicked Licorice was the best Canadian gin in the Old Tom Gin category, while Wicked Citrus was the best Canadian gin in the Contemporary category for the second year in a row.
Gin Fusion Sparkling Lemon Cocktail can be purchased online or in person at the LCBO along with Dixon’s other wickedly smooth products including Wicked Gin, Flaming Caesar and Silvercreek Vodka.
