Torquay’s boozy spritz company Coast team up with local artist Love Ludie for new summer-inspired hard seltzer

If you like Piña Coladas, you’ll love this. 

Have you been dreaming of an island vacation? Well, you’re in luck because our good friends at Coast are here to take your taste buds to a tropical place with the launch of their latest product.

Coast Hard Seltzer, born in Torquay and founded by Jess Blackman (one of the masterminds behind Blackman’s Brewery) has teamed up with Love Ludie’s Jenna Hutchinson to create a brand-new collaboration seltzer flavour just in time for Summer: Pineapple and Coconut.

Inspired by one of the world’s favourite beach drinks, Jess and Jenna have combined their respective knowledge, creativity and passion to give you all of the aromas of an unforgettable vacation, right here in Geelong (or wherever you’re drinking your can of Coast)!

If you haven’t heard of seltzer before, it is an irresistible mix of sparkling water, spiked with alcohol and with dashes of natural flavours, in this case, a bubbly coconut-pineapple flavour that tastes of the tropics in a can. Boasting a low sugar and calorie content, as well as being entirely vegan and gluten-free, this is the drink for those of us who fancy a tipple without the stodgy aftereffect.

While the light and the refreshing flavour itself will transport you to the beach (mini umbrella not included), the label design is bringing a tonne of aesthetic joy to our drinking this summer, courtesy of Jenna, who is renowned for creating dreamy artworks boasting rich luscious textures.

With a passion for expressing her imagination, emotions and whole life through her incredible abstract art, Coast’s limited-edition label is mesmerizing and captivating, featuring a bright and playful custom-painted artwork that just evokes images of summer nights at the beach.

With pineapple and coconut combined for a carbonated play on the classic tropical cocktail, Coast has managed to can that feeling of an exotic escape we’re all currently so desperate for. Having already delivered four delectable flavours that would inspire a Harry Styles album: watermelon, lime, blood orange and cucumber & mint, alongside a special 500ml tropical indulgence, this latest flavour from Coast is, dare we say it, their best one yet.

Best enjoyed on a lake, while playing sand volleyball, or under your backyard bistro lights, this easy-sipping and oh-so refreshing Coast x Love Ludie collaboration is not to be missed.

If you’re keen to give one of these boozy sparkling waters’ a go, we’ve teamed up with Coast to giveaway some four packs of the new flavour. All you need to do is fill in the form below to be in the running.
