Are you a business owner looking to shake up your drink menu? Or a foodie in search for the next best cocktail? Boise is witnessing the birth of another fascinating startup that aims to change the cocktail and hard seltzer industry in the Treasure Valley and beyond. SELTZ™ Beverage in Garden City has designed a product that allows any venue with a beer & wine license to develop a cocktail program.
SELTZ™ gives business owners a fast, cost-effective way to provide their customers with tasty, signature cocktails that don't require a liquor license.
Serve Cocktails Without a Liquor License
No liquor license, no problem! Don’t let those bigger businesses have all the fun. If you have a beer and wine license, you can start calling the shots and begin building a cocktail program, thanks to SELTZ™!
SELTZ™ makes three types of products (so far):
- Cocktail SELTZ™ - a clean, cost-effective alternative to distilled spirits at 13.8%% ABV. Cocktail SELTZ™ also comes in 12 Ready-to-Serve flavors to put on your draft lines at 9.5% ABV per serving.
- Sparkling SELTZ™ - a crisp, neutral flavor is a great social sparkler at 4.5% ABV. Sparkling SELTZ™ comes in 6 great flavor combinations.
- Frozen SELTZ™ - An upgraded slushie for grown-ups made from real fruit purees, and delicious herbs and spices at 5.8% ABV. Frozen SELTZ is currently offered in 13 different flavors.
These innovative cocktail options allow you to be as creative or simple as you would like. Crisp, clean, pure, and refreshing, Sparkling SELTZ™ pushes the hard seltzer category into more thoughtful territory. But if you are truly interested in a fast-track to happy hour at your establishment, Cocktail SELTZ™ and Frozen SELTZ™ are ready to serve!
A Smart Alternative to Spirits
There is nothing better than a company that truly cares about YOUR business. SELTZ™ is the smart alternative to traditional spirits which are distilled, aged, bottled, and heavily taxed. The mission of SELTZ™ Beverage is to allow business owners to reduce pour costs, promote more eco-friendly practices, and create absolutely delicious cocktails that customers love.
Get low, low, low - because SELTZ™ is a low cost, low impact, and low waste product! Here are just some ways SELTZ™ is shaking up the cocktail scene:
- One 5-gallon keg of SELTZ™ beverage has the potential to make your business up to 5X more than an equally priced keg of craft beer would!
- The taxes on SELTZ™ are 10-20X cheaper than those of spirits.
- The lower ABV of SELTZ™ cocktails encourages more drink sales.
- SELTZ™ takes the headache out of building a cocktail program!
Hey cocktail connoisseurs! Don’t go thinking SELTZ™ is only a smart alternative for business owners. You’ll be impressed to know that one ounce of SELTZ™ contains less than half the calorie content of an ounce of vodka! Plus, SELTZ™ is vegan and free of gluten and artificial sweeteners. Pour me another one!
