Freeland Spirits Introduces New Canned French 75 Cocktails
Freeland Spirits and Willamette Valley’s Chehalem Winery Teamed Up to Create a Uniquely Delicious New RTD Cocktail
(PORTLAND, Ore.) October 08, 2020 — Freeland Spirits, an Oregon craft distillery owned and operated by women, introduces its newest canned cocktail: the Freeland French 75. Made with Freeland Gin, Chehalem unoaked INOX Chardonnay, lemon juice and bubbles, the Freeland French 75 is a fresh, fun, and fizzy addition to the lineup.
With notes of fresh mint and candied lemon peel, backed up by the bountiful botanicals of Freeland’s craft gin, Freeland’s new French 75 is perfectly portable for any activity or event. It pairs as well with French cheeses as it does with brunch favorites like Eggs Benedict or popcorn and a movie at home.
“With people looking for fun and easy ways to socialize over cocktails, high-quality ready-made cocktails in cans have a fresh new appeal,” said Freeland Spirits founder Jill Kuehler. “We had fun creating our French 75 with our friends at Chehalem Winery. Winemakers Katie Santora and Melissa Burr helped us create a delicious and fizzy cocktail using our own Freeland craft gin and Chehalem’s delicious Chardonnay.”
To celebrate the newest addition to its portfolio, Freeland is pairing the new French 75 with cheese. Pick up at the Booze Thru outside the Freeland tasting room in Portland. Follow @FreelandSpirits on Instagram to join in on the fun!
Freeland French 75 cans are 15.5% ABV and have a suggested retail price of $16.95 for four 250ml cans (8.4 ounces each). The cocktail is now available at the Freeland Spirits Tasting Room in Portland and will be available at retailers in Oregon, Washington, California, Florida, Illinois, and New York soon. All Freeland products are also available online here.
