Labatt Breweries of Canada has acquired a distillery known for spirits and canned cocktails as the brewery looks to expand its ready-to-drink offerings — a bright spot for a company grappling with a declining beer market.
Labatt announced Monday that it has acquired Delta, B.C.-based Goodridge & Williams. The distillery makes the Nutrl vodka and vodka soda drinks, along with several other spirits and mixed drinks.
“The ready-to-drink category in Canada has grown by double digits in recent years,” said Labatt president Kyle Norrington in an email, citing industry data from the past three years that tracked the rise of pre-mixed drinks, like vodka sodas and gin and tonics.
The vodka soda market, in particular, saw triple-digit growth over the past three years, he said.
Spirits, which includes ready-to-drink products, maintained the largest portion of the Liquor Control Board of Ontario’s sales in 2019, according to its most recent annual report. Spirits brought in $2.5 billion or 39 per cent of all sales.
That year, the province’s spirits market grew 7.6 per cent, according to the LCBO report — up 8.6 million litres to almost 122 million litres.
The pre-mixed and packaged cocktail segment doesn’t show any signs of slowing down, said Norrington in a statement.
The G& W acquisition furthers its offerings in this space.

BC handcrafted vodka. Soda. Lemon. And nothing else.
Theres an endless array of alcoholic drinks available in a can, but Nütrl Vodka Soda is a true innovation in the category: a clean, classic, premium vodka soda made without sugar, sweeteners, additives, or preservatives of any kind.

Unlike other coolers which are sweetened, flavoured and made with mass-produced spirits, Nütrl Vodka Soda is made using outstanding small-batch handcrafted vodka, soda water, and natural lemon for a flavour thats notably cleaner, lighter, andyesmore neutral.
The secret of Nütrl Vodka Soda lies in starting with famously smooth and clean-tasting Nütrl Vodka so that no sugars or sweeteners or artificial flavours are needed to mask. Thats why Nütrl Vodka Soda is wildly light, easy drinking, additive-free and totally refreshing. At only 98 calories in each 355ml can, its the perfect change up from the usual sugary-sweet coolers.

I am not affiliated with Costco or any of its suppliers. I am just a fan of the company. I write these reviews to help my fellow shoppers.
Are you tired of super sweet, high calorie, alcoholic beverages and are looking for a slightly healthier, zero sugar summer beverage!?

Its a long weekend so I figured why not post this today!
Battle Of The Beverages: Nude Vs Nutrl
As I get older, the quest to find an alcoholic beverage that tastes great and leaves you hangover free has become like searching for pirates treasure. In my world, coolers have always been synonymous with one word: headache. I had long tired of artificial sweeteners that left me wondering which flavour I was sipping on, and had grown begrudgingly accustomed to waking up with a splitting, sugar-induced hangover that had me reaching for the bottle of Advil. I had reached an alcohol wall. And, as one who refuses to give up in the face of adversity, I determinedly set out in search of a drink that could make me forget about hangovers of years past, that would satisfy my love of something sweet and would fill my desire for local, chemical-free alcoholic goodness. Thats where Nude and Nutrl vodka sodas stepped in.
Based on a demand from other fed up drinkers such as myself, Nude and Nutrl vodka sodas were created with the health conscious and social drinker in mind. Both boast the same claims a locally made and distilled vodka soda thats free from artificial colours, sweeteners, and flavours, with a rare 100 calories per can. Often compared to La Croix with a boozy twist, both brands are designed to refresh and hydrate their consumer while providing a fresh and unbeatable flavour that packs an alcoholic punch. The question is once put to the test, which would reign supreme?
