Indianapolis’ own Garden Party Botanical Hard Soda is featured in a current Gear Patrol article titled “Summer’s Best Cocktails Come in a Can”. Along with Garden Party, the other brands featured were San Diego’s Cut Water, New York City’s Fisher’s Island, Philadelphia’s Slow and Low and Brazil’s Novo Fogo.
In the article, the New York City-based publication highlighted Garden Party Ruby and stated that “(I)t’s fruity but not overwhelmingly so — and not cloyingly sweet (as malt beverages tend to be), either” and recommended adding a splash of vodka for an unconventional take on a Moscow Mule.
Gear Patrol is an award-winning digital, social and print publication that reaches nearly two million readers and was winner of “Best New Magazine” and “Best New Magazine Launch” in 2016.
The Gear Patrol accolades continues the impressive national press for Erin Edds’ Garden Party Botanical Hard Soda since launching last November. In December, Garden Party became the first Indiana brand and first woman-owned brand to win an “Innovation of the Year” award from Beverage Industry Magazine and in March, Garden Party was featured in the print edition of Bloomberg Businessweek as reviving the wine cooler with an artisan twist.
Garden Party is available for purchase in retail and restaurants in 85 of the 92 Indiana counties and in selected Target, Fresh Thyme and Whole Foods locations.
