New Canned Cocktail Wins in Classic RTD Cocktail Category, Over 110 Entrants
Atlanta’s Hometown Cocktail Company Espresso Martini Available for Pre-Order Now
Post Meridiem Spirit Co., a brand founded on the principles of authenticity, transparency, and uncompromising quality, has yet again proven they hold the recipe for success. Post Meridiem is excited to announce that after winning a Double Gold for their Into the Night Espresso Martini, the cocktail has been awarded Best in Class for the Classic RTD Cocktail category at the San Francisco World Spirit Competition, the most prestigious competition in the industry.
Surpassing over 110 other entrants, Post Meridiem’s Espresso Martini found itself up against one other finalist in the category- its own Double Old Fashioned, before taking home the spirit industry’s most prestigious accolade. The ‘coffeehouse meets cocktail bar’ beverage is made with a blend of vodka, coffee liqueur, and 100% Arabica cold brew coffee- with naturally occurring caffeine for a rich, creamy, balanced, and delicious drink that is at once energizing and intoxicating. Like each of their cocktails, this on-trend addition to the Post Meridiem cocktail line is produced exclusively in Atlanta with 100% real ingredients at the correct proportions.
“Our Espresso Martini was a challenging cocktail to develop – it took two years to get it right,” says Post Meridiem Spirit Company co-founder Andrew Rodbell. “It’s not often you are recognized as the world’s best at anything. It’s amazing and humbling validation that real ingredients do taste better, and our no-compromise approach is what sets us apart.”
Post Meridiem, Atlanta’s Hometown Cocktail Company, will be accepting pre-orders of their Espresso Martini beginning the week of June 27th through its website, www.postmeridiemspirits.com, with expectations of delivery in the second half of July. The brand will also be available out of the lobby of their production facility in Atlanta, GA, before widespread distribution in late July alongside their already available award-winning canned cocktails, including The Real Lime Juice Margarita, The Double Old Fashioned, The Modern Classic Cosmopolitan, The London Dry Southside, The Lemongrass Vodka Gimlet, The 1944 Mai Tai, and The No. Four Daiquiri. The full lineup is also available for direct-to-consumer shipping to 28 states via the brand’s website. Post Meridiem Spirit Company is located at 1209 Logan Circle NW, Atlanta, GA 30318.

From May 1-28, Bring Any Bottled or Canned Margarita to the Post Meridiem Production Facility and Receive

a Real Lime Juice Margarita in Exchange

Event: Trade-Up Day: Saturday, May 1

Noon – 4pm

 Atlanta-based Post Meridiem Spirit Co. is on a mission to help its hometown trade up from poor-quality, premade margaritas. No longer should they settle for artificial ingredients and sub-par flavor. Instead, Atlantans should expect a bar-quality cocktail made with 100% real lime juice and tequila – even if the margarita just so happens to come in a can.

As the first and only canned cocktail company to use 100% real lime juice in its margaritas, Post Meridiem champions the difference that real ingredients make in a cocktail. So intent is the Post Meridiem team on saving Atlantans from bad, premixed margaritas, the brand is offering consumers a free upgrade to experience the real ingredient difference firsthand. From May 1-28, bring in the empty container from any premade margarita and receive The Real Lime Juice Margarita from Post Meridiem in return. In fact, people can hand over any empty canned cocktail and Post Meridiem will trade up their beverage for a better one from its own lineup.

“The vast majority of ready-to-drink cocktails are full of artificial ingredients and, as a result, frankly don’t taste very good,” said Post Meridiem Co-Founder Andrew Rodbell. “One of the worst offenders is the premade margarita. Until recently, nearly every premixed margarita has used some combination of artificial lime flavoring. If the package doesn’t mention ‘100% real lime juice,’ it’s not in there. That means drinks with ‘lime,’ ‘natural lime’ and ‘lime with natural flavors’ aren’t made with real lime juice as a primary ingredient. People deserve better. That’s why we developed our Real Lime Juice Margarita with just three, perfectly balanced ingredients: silver tequila, orange curacao and 100% real lime juice – the way we believe a margarita should be made.”

How to Trade Up:

  • From noon-4 p.m. Mondays through Saturdays, May 1-28, bring your go-to, canned boozy beverage to the Post Meridiem production facility (1303 Logan Circle NW, Atlanta, GA 30318).
  • Hand over the empty can or bottle.
    • Receive a free Post Meridiem Real Lime Juice Margarita (or another of the brand’s canned cocktails – consumer’s choice).
  • Shake, pour over ice and experience a better premade margarita.

Free Event: Trade-Up Day

To kick off its monthlong campaign to bring Atlantans the margarita they deserve, Post Meridiem will host Trade-Up Day, a free, outdoor event from noon-4 p.m. on Saturday, May 1, at the Post Meridiem production facility (1303 Logan Circle NW, Atlanta, GA 30318). On this day, the first 50 people who trade up their canned cocktail of choice will receive not just the Real Lime Juice Margarita but the complete Post Meridiem suite of five authentic cocktails. The event will feature guided tastings, music, interactive experiences and a few surprises throughout the day – all observing social distancing, proper mask usage and other safety precautions.


About Post Meridiem Spirit Co.: The inspiration for Post Meridiem came from a recurring question asked between long-time friends Andrew Rodbell and Charles Sain: “Why can’t I get a good cocktail here?” Frustrated by the general lack of quality cocktail options, the pair founded Post Meridiem in 2017, and, in 2019, they launched the brand’s suite of ready-to-serve, bar-quality cocktails, which they manufacture in a dedicated facility in Atlanta’s West Midtown neighborhood. The brand is available for online purchase and delivery to 33 states and Washington D.C. as well as being offered in retail outlets where liquor is sold throughout Alabama, Georgia, South Carolina and Tennessee.
