At present, Hard Seltzer is certainly the greatest success story in the global beverage market. In the epicentre USA, for example, sales rose by 200 percent in 2019. This trend is still unbroken: between the beginning of March and the end of May 2020, Hard Seltzers worth one billion US dollars were sold in the USA. Next year, the sales figure is expected to be 3.5 billion US dollars. In general, Hard Seltzer is a fizzy, water-based alcoholic beverage with added flavours. It is considered low in carbohydrates, with fewer calories than other beverages and an alcohol by volume of around 5 %. Most Hard Seltzers obtain their alcohol from the fermentation of liquid sugar, often with a malt content. Colour, smell and taste are removed from the fermented beverage by means of filtration. Afterwards, the beverage is carbonated and mixed with different flavours. Another variant is to add alcohol in the form of spirits.
Since Hard Seltzer has been an extremely successful beverage in the USA, brewers worldwide are considering adding their own Hard Seltzer to their product portfolio. ZIEMANN HOLVRIEKA is the right partner for such a project: both for extensions of existing brewery plants and completely new Hard Seltzer plants.
