Having sensed an untapped opportunity to make wine drinking accessible and cool for a younger audience, Founder Rocco Venneri conceptualized Cool Cat on a whim while vacationing in Europe. He set out to create a great-tasting, low-calorie, portable white wine spritzer made with natural ingredients. As a minority, it was of paramount importance to him that the brand be rooted in representation, inclusivity, and acceptance of people of all races, ethnicities, genders, and sexual orientations. After almost two years of preparation and hard work, his vision became a reality when the company launched in 2020. Since then, Venneri has been passionate about providing customers with the best canned cocktail on the market, with great taste and design, but also because of the lifestyle it embraces.
What is a Cool Cat?
Cool Cat is an award-winning canned wine cocktail made from California white wine that is offered in four delicious flavors: Elderflower Mint Lime, Grapefruit, Citrus, and Berry. These 12 oz drinks contain a mere 140 calories and 2 grams of sugar, and are gluten-free. They can be enjoyed straight from the can or used as a mixer in a favorite cocktail recipe.
But in the grander scheme? Cool Cats are original and fearless leaders, driven by our hearts, instincts, and talents. We own who we are, but without apology. Together, we celebrate life to the fullest. We love good music, great food, fun drinks, and exploring this incredible world. We only have one life, right? So let’s get out there and live it!
Cool Cat is sold in 6 states, CA, FL, NC, NY, SC, VA, and we have partnerships with Levi's Stadium (SF 49ers), and the University of Miami (Hurricanes).
