August 24th – Las Vegas, Nevada– Lotus Beverage Alliance, a collective of experienced craft beverage equipment manufacturing companies, today announced its turnkey, end-to-end suite of hardware, software, and financing solutions to help distillers quickly and cost-effectively expand into the Ready-to-Drink (RTD) canned cocktail sector. The portfolio of products includes a comprehensive array of distilling equipment spanning every step from grain to cocktail. Lotus also has a competitive financing program for spirits makers that enables startups and scale-ups to acquire the hardware, control systems, canning lines, and ingredients they need without the upfront costs.

“Lotus Beverage Alliance is committed to helping spirits distillers quickly and cost-effectively expand into the lucrative canned cocktail market,” said John Ansbro, CEO of Beverage Alliance. “Our complete line of solutions eliminates the need for sourcing each piece of manufacturing equipment from dozens of different equipment vendors, a time-consuming and expensive process. Our team of helpful experts can answer questions and provide recommendations on the best equipment to fit every distiller’s unique needs. Further, our financing program removes the burden of upfront investment costs that prohibit many beverage companies from scaling and diversifying into the RTD market.”

According to research firm Future Market Insights (FMI), the RTD canned cocktail market will reach $57.2 billion by 2032 and expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 11.6 percent. The growing consumer interest in canned cocktails began with a shift towards at-home cocktail occasions brought on by the Covid-19 pandemic. The demand has only increased since then, with numerous large spirits makers entering the category with higher quality options that have moved the market into maturity. Distillers can take advantage of this trend by making strategic investments and creating unique offerings to build consumer loyalty and capture market share. Lotus Beverage Alliance has produced the industry’s most comprehensive suite of products, including turnkey distilling systems, mash equipment, fermenters and cellar tanks, controls, pumps, and distillate storage.

The Mancos canning system delivers a high-quality packaging experience for distillers adding a canned cocktail beverage to its product line. See the Mancos on display at the ADI 2023 Craft Spirits Conference & Vendor Expo in Las Vegas at Lotus Beverage Aliiance’s booth, #631.
