Two Roads Brewing Co., a craft brewery, launched Nightshaker Espresso Martinis, a new line of premium vodka-based canned craft cocktails.
At 12% ABV, Nightshaker Espresso Martinis are crafted with vodka and real cold brew coffee. The martinis are the third spirit-based product released under Two Roads Distilling Co., the distilling arm of the brewery that launched last year helmed by Two Roads Master Brewer Phil Markowski, the company notes. After spending two years learning the art of craft distilling, Markowski and his team released the first products under the Two Roads Distilling Co. banner in 2022, a small batch vodka and London dry gin, it says.
“While we’re beer people first and foremost, we never shy away from learning and trying our hand at something new,” Markowski said in a statement. “Espresso martinis are delicious to drink, but they’re a hassle to make — ask any bartender — so we wanted to give our fans a great-tasting and easier way to enjoy them. Our take on the espresso martini is 100% Two Roads, crafted with highest-quality ingredients, a bold yet balanced taste, and an invitation to try something unexpected from us.”
Nightshaker Espresso Martinis are the second vodka-based canned cocktail line from the Two Roads brewery, joining its line of popular Daybreaker craft cocktails all made with 100% real fruit juices and sparkling water, it notes. All of Two Roads spirits, canned cocktails, hard seltzers and limited-edition beers are developed in its innovation-focused Area Two Experimental Brewing facility, it says.
Packaged in 12-ounce cans, the new espresso martinis are available to purchase at Two Roads Brewery and retailers throughout Connecticut for $16.99 for a four-pack.
