About Long Shot Drinks.

A no-nonsense blend of fruit, sparkling water & alcohol, Long Shot have entered the drinks world, going against the grain by using only all-natural high quality fruit juice & a natural grain spirit. Never anything artificial!

Fuelled by a rebellious spirit, a thirst for adventure & a healthy dose of blind optimism, the team behind Long Shot, decided to quit their 9-5 corporate jobs & take a “long shot” at creating their very own drink.

After some careful crafting, a bit of experimenting & a long night or two, they got there. By taking things back to basics & being inspired by a hugely popular US trend, Hard Seltzer, they created a range of alcoholic sparkling waters made right here in the UK, and tastes great.

They found that many drinks brewing in the market were packed with artificial ingredients & fake flavours, which made no sense to them. They made sure their product would be made in the right way, with the right ingredients, an aim to help shape the movement towards more transparency for customers to know exactly what it is they’re drinking.

Company Values.

Innovation | Honesty | Transparency

Long Shot aim to be the leading UK hard seltzer brand. They have a long way to go, but they have what it takes with great product & bucket loads of ambition. They don’t like sitting still, constantly looking as to how they can provide a better service for their drinkers, whether that’s cheaper delivery or better availability in local stores or just experimenting to find their next flavour idea to expand their range.

The Long Shot team live & breathe everything they do & crave being part of an early-stage start-up intent on breaking the drinking status quo. For too long the drinks scene has been dominated by the same big brands all offering the same products. Long Shot want to show there is space for an innovative British underdog to break on to the scene & connect with a younger, more health-conscious drinker, & is why they show exactly what goes into their drinks.
