Starward is showing off a new way to whisky with the launch of its first ever, ready-to-drink, Canned Cocktail range.

Featuring three, fruit forward and effervescent flavours, these cocktails were inspired by some of the classic cocktails from our distillery bar in Port Melbourne, including:

  • Starward Whisky, Tonic and Juicy Ruby Grapefruit.
  • Starward Whisky, Ginger Beer and Zesty Orange.
  • Starward Whisky, Soda and Tangy Finger Lime

Starward’s Canned Cocktails are available for purchase via as well as at leading BWS and Dan Murphy’s stores across Australia


Fruity Beer

When you think of summer sips it can be argued that fruity and refreshing comes to mind, that’s exactly what it says on the tin, and guess what – it doesn’t disappoint.

Fruity Beer’s major ingredients are malted barley, hops, yeast, and water, just like regular tasting beer. However, we’ve spent 18 months conducting extensive consumer research and investing in modern technology to brew an easy-drinking, fruity tasting beer that has a short, lager-like finish on the palate.

With ultra-low bitterness and subtle maltiness Fruity Beer, our flavoured brew has a stronger fruity flavour stronger than anything you’d taste in a craft beer.

Our first Fruity Beers are Sungazer, which comes in Watermelon flavour, Raspberry flavour and Mango flavour,and Empire, a low-sugar option available in Strawberry & Lime flavour or Orange & Mango flavour. They are on sale this week at major bottleshops in 300ml cans with 4.2% ABV.
