Look Vancouver, we get you. When it comes to alcoholic beverages, sugar is out and simplicity is in. Luckily for you, there’s a new drink in town, and it’s unlike anything Vancouver has ever tasted. Van, meet Highball– the latest offering from Delta-based distillers, Goodridge & Williams.

Inspired by the Hiball culture of Japan, Highball Whisky Soda is the first of its kind in the country. The name says it all; Highball Whisky Soda is made with two simple ingredients: premium, Canadian Whisky and fizzy water. There’s no sugar or sweetener, no carbs and no preservatives – the same as its extremely popular sister brand, Nütrl Vodka Soda (which is made by the same distillery).

Highball is made with whisky distilled from Western Canada, which means you’re tasting a high-quality, exceptionally smooth blend of wheat, rye, corn and malted barley. Notes of new wood, stone fruit, toffee and honey are prevalent thanks to bourbon barrel aging.

The difference lies in the ultra-smooth taste, which comes from the “toast” of the barrel. Plus the fact that it’s got zero sugar definitely helps. That’s right– no carbs, no sodium, no mixer needed here. Highball speaks boldly for itself with BIG taste, and its perfect straight from the can or on the rocks with a slice of lime.

So be sure to impress the crew next time you hang out and pour them a Highball. It’s a step up from your average sip, trust us on this one. Summer bashes, outdoor adventures and nights on the town will never be the same, because you deserve the best in every occasion.

Can’t wait to give ’em a try? Highball will be available at private liquor stores all around BC. Head to their website to see what stores are carrying them. And pro tip: toss Highball a follow on Instagram for a chance to win free swag all summer long. Drink bold Van! We’ll be doing the same.
