10 of the biggest Hard Seltzer brands

10. San Juan

Brand owner: San Juan Seltzer Inc.

Launched: 2017

One of only three independent seltzer brands in our roundup, San Juan was founded by Kay Enger in 2017, with its ‘seltzery’ based in Seattle. The inspiration for the brand came to Enger while on a trip to her family’s holiday home in the San Juan islands. “That evening while sitting on the back deck, my girlfriends and I shared the beauty of the Pacific Northwest Islands while seeking to create fun, low calorie, sparkling cocktails,” she says.

The company now has a raft of products in its portfolio, which are typically aimed at a female demographic. Flavours include Raspberry-Crab, Huckleberry (a Blueberry-based expression) and Fuji apple. Other variants that are fusing the worlds of hard seltzer and wine include a peach rosé seltzer and dry rosé seltzer. The first blends peach flavourings with “mellow notes of Merlot wine”, while the latter is described as having a “honeysuckle aroma, reminiscent of its bone-dry Riesling inspiration”. San Juan seltzers carry a svelte 85 calories a can, boast a zero sugar and carb content and are 4.2% ABV.
