Check it Out: Canada's first sake-based seltzer

A cool new contender for the Canadian RTD crown

A unique new ready-to-drink cocktail that has been stirring up buzz in B.C. is getting ready to hit the market in Alberta. SakeBomb, which made its debut in B.C.’s Lower Mainland just over a month ago, aims to offer a premium quality alternative to what’s currently available in the RTD sector.

The SakeBomb brand was designed by Stefana Prodea and a team of award-winning beverage developers. The plant-based and gluten-free RTD is brewed in B.C. and features three flavours: Berry Blast, Lime Drop, and Peach Smash. 

"SakeBomb is truly a dream brand for us," explains Prodea. "Not only have we created a delicious, innovative RTD cocktail, but we are also making waves in the alcohol beverage industry with our focus on female empowerment. It's a dynamite combo that tastes like a much-needed change in the market, and it is only just the beginning of what's to come."

As a woman-founded business looking to disrupt a male-dominated industry, SakeBomb is dedicating a portion of all proceeds towards launching a new BombWomen mentorship program at some point next year. 

Although an exact date for SakeBomb’s Alberta debut has yet to be revealed, the website’s “Bomb Finder” feature is updated regularly with all of the locations that currently carry the RTD lineup.
