Taking cans where bottles can't go

It’s Saturday afternoon and you’re going river rafting with a group of people, you have a picnic packed in your cooler and you see the sign that says “No bottles.” No problem. Or you meet your friends at the beach for sunset, another sign “No bottles.” Again, not a problem. Your ace in the hole? You have wine in cans.

Canned wines are transforming picnic baskets around the world. You drink it directly from the can, like you do a beer. It’s the perfect drinking vessel. Today a handful of wineries are adding cans to their bottling lines.

Don’t panic, wine in cans is meant for easy-drinking wines. Not wines that are being cellared and aged for years. Drink it now, or in the next 12 months.

Wine in cans is starting to take off as winemakers realize what craft brewers have realized and benefitted from; cans are a great package for high end beverages, offer consumers more occasions to enjoy them and provide the best sustainability story in the beverage packaging space. The old stigma where the can is considered to be a less elegant package is melting away and the can is coming into its own. Most new and old beverage industries seem to be pushing toward cans at this time, being led by the craft beer can revolution.

Frank Liquor offers a variety of Wine in the Can options for your convenience!

New! Prayers of Sinners & Saints

St. Michelle Wine Estates taps into both its virtuous good side and indulgent dark side with the launch of Prayers of Sinners & Saints wine, available nationwide in March.
Heralding from Washington State’s top producer, the wines feature a unique label design with hidden glow-in-the-dark features—the first of its kind.

Prayers of Saints Chardonnay is bright and refreshing with 7% of the total blend comprised of “Black Chardonnay,” meaning the juice was oxidized before fermentation to reduce bitterness, increase sweet fruit flavors and enhance complexity.

Prayers of Sinners is a broody red bland deeply layered with blackberry, dark fruit, violet and cocoa.

It's Shandy Season!

Image
The shandy was first introduced by Franz Kugler after a bicycle race in Munich in 1922. His tavern was overrun with thirsty cyclists, so he cut his beer with lemonade and soda so they didn’t run out. This inspired Leinenkugel’s to combine their Weiss beer with natural lemonade flavor to create Summer Shandy®, as well as a variety of other refreshing beers.

Summer Shandy is Leinenkugel’s own unique take on Franz Kugler’s original Munich tavern tradition. Leinenkugel’s® Summer Shandy® is a traditional weiss beer with refreshing natural lemonade flavor that makes it the perfect summer beer. In 2012, Summer Shandy won a Silver medal at the Great American Beer Festival® in the Fruit Wheat Beer category.

Summer Shandy is now available in a variety of packages. From the traditional 6 pack bottle to 24oz cans and kegs, the perfect package of Summer Shandy is available to fit any consumer’s needs. Ask your Sales Representative for more details.

Baileys Strawberries & Cream

Treat yourself to the luxurious taste of berries and cream with the limited-edition Baileys Strawberries & Cream Liqueur. By blending fresh, juicy strawberries with pure Irish dairy cream and the unique Baileys spirit, Strawberries & Cream is perfect for a sweet dessert or in a mixed drink after dinner. Try serving over crushed ice or blended with coconut water for a light but indulgent springtime cocktail.

If we're really being honest, however, we'd buy Strawberries & Cream for the bottle alone.
