If it has been ages since you last drank from a doypack (AKA the stand-up pouch like Zest-O’s), now’s the time to bring one as baon again.

In a review posted last July by popular Facebook page “Tagay Ka Muna, Pre,” a drink trended not just for being deceiving, but for being innovative as well.

At first glance, Gaz looks just like your favorite fruit juices from your childhood, but upon closer look, there you’ll see that Gaz, apparently, is a ready-to-drink cocktail drink.

Sobrang rare find pero masarap. Yung alcohol content niya? Mas mataas sa Smirnoff Mule pero mas mababa sa Redhorse. Seven percent ABV din to kaya maka-lima ka nito ewan ko na lang baka nakikipagsigawan ka na sa unan,” the review said.

Upon seeing the post, we just had to find out if it was legit. And according to research, Gaz Ready-To-Drink Cocktail is a real thing, and is a product of Destileria Limtuaco & Co., Inc.—the makers of El Hombre Tequila and Toska Vodka.

In an interview, Aaron James Limpe Aw, Business Development Manager for Destileria Limtuaco & Co., Inc., said that they came out with the Gaz Ready-To-Drink Cocktail because they want a more affordable drink that’s also lightweight, durable, and space-saving.

Green Appletine contains apple, honey dew, melon, and vodka. 

And it turns out, Gaz Ready-To-Drink Cocktail has been around for years—it just attradcted attention now because of the internet.

“Honestly, the product has been around for a while but we had trouble getting it launched. Not a lot of retail outlets were interested because the product was so near and different. It wasn't until recently that we started to get traction online, this developed a new market for our product that has been slowly growing solely through the power of social media,” Limpe Aw said.

The brand used their knowledge in bar staples, house pours, and liquors while making the flavors of Gaz Ready-To-Drink Cocktails. It's also the first-ever ready-to-drink alcoholic mix in the country.

“There’s an opportunity in the country’s ready-to-drink cocktail segment. The response has been generally favorable so far,” he adds.

As of writing, only two flavors are available in the market: Strawberry Margarita and Green Appletini. The brand is planning to release two new flavors soon.
