Teatulia and Upslope collaborate to launch a new RTD canned beverage
Organic tea and botanical producer, Teatulia, PBC have announced a flavour collaboration with Colorado-based independent craft brewer Upslope Brewing Company. The new ready-to-drink cocktail-inspired canned beverage combines organic tea and botanicals from Teatulia with Upslope’s craft hard seltzer Spiked Snowmelt weighing in a 12% ABV. Inspired by a Caribbean rum punch that is sweet, tart, spice-forward, and dry, Hard Sipper House Punch brings together a black tea-infused Spiked Snowmelt base, lemon juice, hibiscus, and fresh nutmeg.
“Craft brewing is part alchemy and part art,” said Tim Bradley, CEO of Teatulia. “And although tea and botanicals have not traditionally been looked at in the beer/alcohol industry, with great partners like Upslope, we are excited to help curate new innovations.”
“We came to Teatulia not only because we are ethically aligned but because we know Teatulia has amazing products,” said Alex Meyer, head brewer of Upslope. Chris Olsen, chief business development officer of Teatulia, added, “Working with Upslope has been inspiring; it’s an honor to get to innovate with their team.”
