The Jones Soda Co. is associated with decidedly different soda beverages, but that's about to change with the announcement of the Spiked Jones Hard Cider Soda. The news comes on the heels of the brand's 21st birthday, which coincides well with the drinking age that exists in the US market.
The hybrid libation is purported to be the first alcoholic cider-soda drink that will be sold in the US, which comes at the perfect time as popularity of both cider, premium sodas and coolers see a marked increase.
The Spiked Jones Hard Cider Soda has a 6% ABV and was described by the CEO for the Jones Soda Co., Jennifer Cue, when she said, "As Jones Soda Co turns 21, we couldn’t think of a more fitting way to celebrate than to launch an alcohol-based extension, Spiked Jones. This is a product we have actually been contemplating for years, having filed the ‘Spiked Jones’ name in 1997. Innovating and launching the first hard cider-soda beverage is a natural transition and it allows us to enter an entirely new category with our brand, reaching a demographic that grew up loving our soda."
