Sips that Give Back This Earth Day — Volley Tequila Seltzer & High West Whiskey

With Earth Day taking place tomorrow, we want to share a couple spirits and seltzer brands that have made it their mission to protect and give back to the planet all while creating their tried and true feel-good products.

From the first ever clean tequila seltzer brand Volley teaming up with an environmental non-profit to clean up our natural world to Park City-based whiskey distillery, High West, leading the charge in land preservation, see below for two incredible give-back partnerships that make celebrating Mother Earth extra special this year!

With values rooted in environmental sustainability and preservation, Volley, the first clean tequila seltzer on the market, displays its can-do values through a commitment to preserving the planet and its partnership with Leave No Trace (LNT) Center for Outdoor Ethics, a non-profit organization dedicated to protecting the outdoors. With conservation near and dear to husband and wife co-founders Christopher Wirth and Camila Soriano’s hearts, Volley hosts regular beach/park cleanups and educational events around the country in tandem with partner, LNT.

  • Volley (100–110 calories per can) is made with just three ingredients — 100% blue agave tequila, sparkling water and organic juice and is free of commonly-used fake sugars, natural flavorings, essences and corn syrup (unlike most other seltzer on the market).
  • Available in four guilt-free flavors: Zesty Lime, Spicy Ginger, Sharp Grapefruit and Tropical Mango, Volley’s gluten-free seltzers can be enjoyed chilled and from the can or mixed into springtime cocktails.
  • Pricing: $14.99/6-pack

With a passion for the American West’s natural beauty, High West has partnered with the American Prairie Reserve in northeastern Montana to help preserve the largest wildlife reserve in the lower 48 states. When complete, the Reserve will be approximately 5,000 square miles; larger than Yellowstone, Yosemite, and Grand Teton National Parks combined. High West’s American Prairie Bourbon is named after and in support of American Prairie Reserve, and the brand has committed to donating ten percent of their after-tax profits from the sale of each bottle to American Prairie Reserve.

  • American Prairie Bourbon is a complex blend of straight bourbons producing an aromatic whiskey that helps preserve the West.
  • This bourbon is a standout in cocktails with its notes of light caramel and sweet vanilla, but has a rich and earthy complexity that makes it a perfect sipping spirit for spring.
  • Pricing: $33.99/bottle
