Sunny sips – the Stone & Wood team is shaking things up with sparkling new creation Sunly Seltzer
Although we are in the midst of winter’s chilliest weeks, we can still daydream of summer days spent taking relaxing ocean dips, sun-baking on the sand and Sunday pub sessions. So we can start living our best summer lives right now, the beer-making brainiacs behind Stone & Wood have launched a refreshing sparkling sip that is sure to satisfy. The best part? This refreshing imbibe is gluten free, vegan and boasts only three grams of sugar. Say hello to Sunly Seltzer – your new (and heathier) boozy buddy to take on all of your sun-filled adventures.
Born and brewed in Byron Bay, Sunly Seltzer is a no-nasties hard seltzer (or alcoholic carbonated water, for those less familiar) that is making waves with its zesty, crisp taste. Made in three different delicious fruity flavours – Davidson plum and berry, ginger and lemon, and blood orange and grapefruit – Sunly is a healthier, more natural and clean-tasting alternative to other canned-booze creations, which are often blurred with sugar and artificial flavours.
While some hard-seltzer brands use vodka as the so-called ‘hard’ stuff, Sunly is created using a similar process to beer – it’s brewed with a gluten-free grain called sorghum, hops, water and yeast, and finished with an infusion of natural ingredients, resulting in a vibrant and refreshing sparkling sip. This process allows for Sunly’s super-low sugar count of just three grams of the sweet stuff per can, which is 90-percent less sugar than your usual cavity-causing RTD premix concoctions. Sunly Seltzer is one of the first Australian brands to jump on the hard-seltzer express with a one-way ticket to the international seltzer craze, which has already seen the hugely popular effervescent potion take over the US alcohol market (an estimated AUD $1.38 billion was spent on hard seltzer last year in North America alone) and has begun bubbling away here in Australia.
Want to taste-test these invigorating tipples? Head to Stone & Wood Brisbane or Stone & Wood Brewery in Byron Bay to enjoy a in-house bevvy or make tracks to your local bottle-o to grab a four-pack or a carton to take home.
