Toronto, Ontario – The team that created the Original Canadian Pale Ale has just launched a new style of beer cocktail, bringing a wee bit of British culture to Canada. Old Tomorrow Honey Ginger Shandy is Ontario’s first craft shandy and carries on the tradition of the shandygaff, the British drink which originated in the 1850’s and is a blend of beer and ginger ale.
At only 3% alcohol, Old Tomorrow Honey Ginger Shandy is an new easy-drinking style of beer cocktail that delivers satisfying thirst-quenching enjoyment. Old Tomorrow blended its beer with the original 1873 recipe for Muskoka Dry™ Pale Ginger Ale, packed with botanical extracts, and then added natural honey and lemon flavours. The result is a light and refreshing ginger flavour.
“We wanted to create a truly unique and fun product with a kicked back summer vibe,” explained co-founders and mother-son team Pat and Ian Macdonald. “Our Honey Ginger Shandy lets you soak up the ultimate taste of summer. It’s both zesty and invigorating, making it a great alternative to sweeter radlers and lighter beers. The low alcohol makes it perfect for parties.”
Old Tomorrow Honey Ginger Shandy salutes the great Canadian summer and is available only for a limited time, exclusively at select LCBO stores. The product is enjoyable on its own or an ideal companion to BBQ’d foods, spicy ethnic dishes, salty snacks and lighter fare.
