On Feb. 17, it was announced that Carrollton’s own Uptown Wine Cocktails, a premium, ready-to-drink cocktail within the BuzzBallz, LLC/Southern Champion family, has been named Alcoholic Beverage Product of the Year for 2021. Product of the Year is the largest consumer-voted award for innovation, chosen by 40,000 American shoppers in a national survey conducted by Kantar, a global leader in consumer research.
This is a hallmark accomplishment, a true testament to the brand’s devotion to quality, as this award was acquired less than a year after its launch in April 2020.
Many on the BuzzBallz, LLC/Southern Champion team credit the rapid success to the high shelf appeal of the frosted bottle and the use of premium, natural ingredients (juices or creams) in each cocktail. The omission of high-fructose corn syrup ensures Uptown Wine Cocktails deliver on value and craft flavor; each is 13.9 percent ABV in a 1.75-liter bottle.
Uptown Cocktails are currently sold in grocery stores across the country with flavors such as Mango Margarita, Strawberry Margarita and Chocolatini. To learn more, visit productoftheyearusa.com.
