  • Introducing PURSUE – A brand new Hard Seltzer, made in Goa

    Published on December 3, 2021

    Goa: Goa-based, Mandovi Distilleries today announced the launch of PURSUE – the Miami and Bangalore based Hard Seltzer, which will be bottled and marketed in India. PURSUE is a novel Hard Seltzer brand developed in a global collaboration by top notch flavour specialists, boutique design firms and progressive product artists between Miami, continental Europe, and Western India.

    As an alcohol category, Hard Seltzer is a blank slate – unshackled by historical associations or the weight of expectation. A truly versatile beverage and free from conventions. PURSUE was created by taking 4 core pillars into account – Utmost Quality, Detailed & Unique Design, Artistry and Sustainability. PURSUE is an indulgence that defies guilt and encourages freedom in its many forms.

    The Hard Seltzer offers four variants inspired by a marriage of global and quintessentially local Indian flavours – Mosambi and Mint, Strawberry and Rose, Peach and White Tea, and Mango and Chilli. This new offering will see a staggered launch at select hotels, bars, restaurants and MOTs, across 2021-22. Starting with Goa and Pondicherry, then followed by Karnataka, Maharashtra, Delhi NCR and Telangana, PURSUE will be available at a starting price-range of INR 100 onwards for a 330ml pint. Prices will vary from state to state, based on local excise laws and taxes.

    Speaking about the new introduction, Anish Reddy – CEO and Founder, PURSUE, shares, “With the ever-evolving pool of consumers who are becoming more experiential and quality driven, the idea behind PURSUE is to promote personal freedom, reshape conventions around alcoholic beverages and create a sparkling indulgence for everyone. We want people to pursue a place that is theirs to experience and one without compromise.”

    WHAT’S IN A NAME!

    PURSUE is a fresh, contemporary concept and a reflection of the determined energy and influence of a new generation. The name epitomises the spirit of individualism, happiness and freedom. A cyclical pursuit, where passion, purpose and playfulness are both the means and the end. Pursue makes for a perfect accompaniment through moments that are both simple and celebratory. 

    HARD-SELTZER 101:

    Hard seltzer is an alcohol-based carbonated beverage blended with natural flavours. Bottled in the brand’s zero waste and environmentally sustainable distillery in Goa, Pursue hard seltzer is clean, guilt-free and enjoyable to drink. With 5% alcohol content (Abv), less than 1% sugar and fewer than 110 calories, Pursue Hard Seltzer is made with 100% natural flavours sourced from the finest ingredients and the highest grade of pure grain spirit. PURSUE is best enjoyed chilled from the bottle. 

    MESSAGE IN A BOTTLE:

    In making its patented designed bottles, PURSUE took a walk down memory-lane to revive designs of soda-bottles across different decades – a mainstay of languorous summer afternoons from our childhoods. The result is an elegant bottle that retains a sense of familiarity while taking a progressive outlook. Each groove in the glass offers captivating visual refractions when the bottle is filled with effervescent seltzer. 

    DESIGNS ON FLAVOUR:

    Dutch illustrator and muralist, Joren Joshua´s lanky characters give tactile form to each flavour. With subtle references to the ingredients and the name of each product, the avant-garde art finds its canvas on the bottle-caps and necks – making each bottle a collectible.
