The team that created the first ever 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.
Old Tomorrow Honey Ginger Shandy is an new easy-drinking new style of beer cocktail that delivers an invigorating ginger flavor for both satisfying and thirst-quenching enjoyment. The shandy was created in collaboration with Muskoka Springs, using its original 1873 recipe for Muskoka Dry™ Pale Ginger Ale, which is packed with botanical extracts. Old Tomorrow brewed its beer, blended it with the ginger ale and then added natural honey and lemon flavours. The result is a light and zesty ginger flavor that is truly refreshing.
“We wanted to create a truly unique fun product with a kicked back summer vibe,” explained co-founders Pat and Ian Macdonald. “Muskoka Dry Pale Ginger Ale has outstanding flavor and effervescence – perfect for making Ontario’s first shandy.” They went on to add that Old TomorrowHoney Ginger Shandy is a salute to the great Canadian summer and it’s perfect for chilling out or cooling down on a hot summer day.
“Our Shandy lets you soak up the ultimate taste of summer,” explained Pat. She added that its cool zestiness makes it a great alternative to sweeter radlers and lighter beers. The low alcohol level of only 3% is perfect for parties and social gatherings.
Old Tomorrow Honey Ginger Shandy salutes the great Canadian summer and is available 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
