Rather than compete in the crowded hard seltzer market, Tito have released a novelty ‘hard seltzer’ – an empty can, without any of the ingredients. Encouraging consumers to make their own ‘better tasting seltzers’ using Tito’s flavoured vodkas, the novelty stunt also has a purpose driven element behind it, with all net profits going to the customer’s choice of charity partner.
