Aussie canned cocktails named world’s best

Australian premium canned cocktails brand, Curatif, has been awarded six medals – including two World’s Best Awards – at the 2021 World Premix Awards, which took place in London this week.

The Melbourne-based start-up won the Classic and Contemporary cocktail categories, winning the World’s Best Classic Cocktail for its Tequila Tromba Margarita and World’s Best Contemporary Cocktail for its Black Pearl Toreador.

Curatif was also awarded with the contemporary Style Winner Award for its Tequila Tromba Margarita, a gold medal for its Plantation Hurricane and two silver medals for its Plantation Pineapple Daiquiri and Jacoby’s Trader Vic’s Mai Tai.

“To receive this global recognition against some incredible cocktails from around the world is a true honour, and a testament to our relationships with the world’s best crafted spirits,” said Matt Sanger, Managing Director and Co-founder, Curatif.

“Our team continues to push the boundaries of the premixed category with the quality of our ready to serve cocktails, created and perfected with the finest ingredients from around the world.”

Run by the World Drinks Awards, the World Premix Awards offer a global programme to select and showcase the very best internationally recognised ready-to-drink styles.
