Cannabis-infused beverage brand Artet is entering the ready-to-drink category with the launch of two signature canned cocktails, Rosemary Jane and Tet & Tonic.
Created by cousins Xander Shepherd, Zachary Spohler and Maxwell Spohler, Artet debuted in 2019 as a non-alcoholic aperitif infused with cannabis and a blend of eight different botanicals made to be sipped over ice, spritzed with sparkling water or incorporated into cocktails. The introduction of a canned cocktail is the first ready-to-drink expansion for Artet.
"We started Artet with a belief that a delicious drink doesn't have to begin with alcohol," Zach Spohler said. "With a year under our belt of pouring beverages and working with our creative community of at-home and professional mixologists, we've canned two of our favorite Artet mixed drinks which each have a balanced 5 mg dose of THC and CBD to mimic the relaxed, yet social elements of aperitivo culture."
Both Rosemary Jane and Tet & Tonic feature the flagship aperitif as the foundational "spirit" and build upon it with thoughtfully selected juices, natural extracts and tonics, creating a more convenient and perfectly dosed way for consumers to enjoy their next cocktail hour.
Rosemary Jane: Born out of a backyard BBQ in Los Angeles, Rosemary Jane quickly became a favorite among Artet drinkers. It is zesty, refreshing and elegantly sessionable with the warming notes of Artet working in harmony alongside a blend of Italian grapefruit juice, young rosemary simple syrup, and sparkling water.
Tet & Tonic: An ode to the timeless sundowner cocktail, the juniper, gentian, and cardamom botanicals of Artet are paired beautifully with a custom chamomile-infused tonic and a squeeze of lemon. This is an easy sipper that is reminiscent of a gin and tonic.
Rosemary Jane and Tet & Tonic are available by the individual can ($6) or in a 4-pack ($20) in Los Angeles and San Francisco at a select group of dispensaries including Sweet Flower, Cornerstone Collective, Mission Cannabis Club, Sava and ONA.life, with a wider launch in California by the end of this year.
