Dichello Distributors Adds Ready-to-Drink Offerings

By April 26, 2023Connecticut, Top News

Dichello Distributors launched new ready-to-drink selections for summer. The first is a new spiked coolers line from Nashville, Tennessee-based Big Machine Distillery. Now available statewide, the mix of Big Machine Vodka, real fruit juice and natural flavors is sold in convenient ready-to-drink pouches in two flavor lines. Big Machine Original 5.9% Spiked Coolers are available in Cranberry, Lemonade, and Tropical and Big Machine Double Spiked Coolers are available in Coconut Breeze, Lavender Lemonade and Citrus Peach. When empty Spiked Coolers pouches are shipped, they use 1/26 the ecological footprint of empty cans and bottles, saving 26 times the energy of other containers. Also new is MARGS, all-natural, great-tasting, authentic margaritas in a can in five full-bodied flavors, each 5% ABV with 130 calories per 12-oz. can: Classic, Mango, Coconut, Mezcal and Spicy. Each is available in individual flavor four-packs and variety eight-packs, ready for Cinco De Mayo celebrations and all summer long. Hoop Tea, a line of refreshing spiked iced teas founded on the beaches of Ocean City, Maryland, expanded its footprint to Connecticut. Hoop Tea Original Pack holds 12-pack cans of Original, a classic flavor to pour over ice with a freshly squeezed lemon.
