American Hard-Seltzer Sensation White Claw Coming To Canada

“If you think about it, LaCroix is just a virgin White Claw.”

The millennial favorite — a cocktail of minimal fruit flavoring, alcohol, and sparkling water — hit the US market in the summer of 2016. By 2018, popularity soared. After it swept the college market — oddly finding its predominant demographic in college “bros” — a viral confluence of fan videos and memes in conjunction with savvy company-run social media, made the drink a media sensation.


Soon the Claw became a fixture at fraternity houses, beach outings, and house parties. Sales drove up to 320% between 2018 and 2019. So much so that in September of 2019, the nation virtually sold out — inciting a country-wide panic.


As said, White Claw is a sparkling, fruit-flavored hard seltzer. It comes in black cherry, natural lime, mango, raspberry, ruby grapefruit, and pure hard seltzer. White Claw is packaged in slim white 12-oz cans. Each can of Claw is 5% alcohol with 100 calories and a mere 2 grams of carbs.

On March 1st, Toronto will be able to see what the buzz is all about. Hopefully the Pink Whitney comes next.
