RTD

If you’re not familiar with the term “RTD” then think “Alcopops” – but craft! These are not your standard “WKD Blue” type products – but a selection of tasty Read-To-Drink cocktails and seltzers made by small independent producers.

“Seltzer”, if you’ve been living under a rock, is essentially the Americans inventing “alcopops” in the 2010s, which has since become a bit of a craze over there. The terminology is now migrating to the UK in various ways – some seltzers are made on a light brewed malt base, but many are essentially soft-drinks spiked with alcohol.
