Real pure juices (not juice blends or wonfs) are a premium ingredient in every Black Fly recipe. To balance the tart taste of the pure cranberry, wild blueberry, lemon, lime, strawberry & mango juices we add a hint of sweet with real cane sugar (not high fructose corn syrup). Black Fly uses real Canadian Vodka in our Vodka Mixed Drinks & utilizes its special license to import Genuine Mexican Tequila from Jalisco, Mexico for an authentic Mexican tequila taste in every Black Fly Tequila Mixed Drink.
At 400mL Black Fly bottles offer approximately 15% more volume that 330-335mL bottles. That's two extra bottles per case of 24! Great for entertaining, one bottle poured into a cocktail glass serves 2-3 drinks! Our custom designed bottles are lightweight, non-breakable, BPA free, recyclable and re-sealable PET1 bottles that are quick to chill, convenient to enjoy straight from the bottle. Fans of the Fly love that ice cubes fit right through the wide mouth tops.
Truly different indeed, Black Fly coolers are, to borrow a phrase "distinctly Canadian"É What is more, the black fly is the major pollinator for blueberries, that quintessential Canadian fruit. And cranberries share equal status as a symbol of woodsy Canada. mix them together, stir in some spirits, bottle them all in wide-mouthed, plastic, recyclable bottles and you have a drink as Canadian as free health care and street hockey.
