Austin Eastciders is expanding beyond hard cider to launch a spiked seltzer that’s 100 calories and made with real fruit, cider, and nothing artificial! As hard seltzer is now a $1.7BB category growing over 220% last year alone, the Austin-based cult-favorite cider set out to delight fans looking for a fresh seltzer that overachieves on flavor.

As a company always focused on innovation and better-for-you offerings, the new Austin Eastciders Spiked Seltzer line is the perfect way to match consumers nutritional needs with a better tasting seltzer in unique flavors. Starting in March, Austin Eastciders Spiked Seltzers will start showing up on shelves in all markets where they currently sell. Coming out first in 6-packs and draft is Black Cherry, a light-bodied and fruity seltzer with real cherry juice. Consumers looking for a medley of great flavors will enjoy a Spiked Seltzer Variety 12-Pack including Black Cherry, Peach, and Apple hitting shelves at the same time.

Brittnay Perlo, Master Cidermaker at Austin Eastciders notes, “Our new spiked seltzers have a burst of flavor with a light and refreshing finish. Many other spiked seltzers are made by formulating refined sugars or other grains. Our seltzer is made by fermenting real fruit to get a flavor that’s delicious and we can feel good about.”

Black Cherry Spiked Seltzer will be sold in a 6-pack, draft, and a variety 12-pack which will include four cans of each Peach, Apple, and Black Cherry. Visit to find your local retailer.
