The Top Dog Story

Welcome to the pack! Top Dog Cocktails’ flavor profiles were born and bred in Pennsylvania, where our team got to work crafting sophisticated cocktail combinations using premium spirits and real ingredients. Our passion stemmed from the idea that the taste of your drinks matters and that the moments spent sipping should be savored. We set out with one goal in mind—to create the highest quality, best-tasting canned cocktails with honest and recognizable ingredients.

Each flavor profile begins with a premium, spirit base from our co-packing partner, Boardroom Spirits Distillery in Lansdale, PA, combined with fresh fruit and all natural flavors. Then we pack those flavors into a convenient, ready-to-drink can. The result is a delicious, high-end, real Top Dog Cocktail experience that you can take anywhere.

Now you can enjoy the craftsmanship of a cocktail you would find at your favorite restaurant or bar, right from the comfort of your couch. We look forward to developing and sharing new delicious flavors with you as our adventure continues!
