White Claw RTDs are coming to NZ this month but here's how you can snag a pack early

Well pour a drink in my red cup and call me Chad!

Aotearoa will finally be stocking White Claws, the world's biggest RTD brand (Billy Mavs robbed). 

The frat house adjacent white and black cans are on their way right now, and a few are already floating around the country.

You might’ve already seen them in the hands of world champion surfer Ricardo Christie, who teased NZers in an IG post over the weekend. 

"The wait is soon to be over my Kiwi friends," he said. "Get your chilly bins ready for some post-surf hydration."

Made with sparkling water and “balanced with a pure alcohol base,” the drinks are all under 100 calories each. Hitting NZ shelves will be three flavours - Lime, Mango, and Raspberry.

The comments went nuts with Kiwis begging to find out where they could get their claws on a can, and DB Breweries, the official White Claw crew in NZ, heard you loud and clear.

“We have underestimated the excitement and speculation the arrival of White Claw would cause amongst New Zealanders,” says DB Breweries Senior Marketing Manager, Cormac van den Hoofdakker.

They’ll be popping up a store called ‘First Wave’ so you can get your mitts on one of the first packs before they hit NZ shelves in late April.

First Wave will be located at 242 Broadway in Newmarket, Auckland for from April 5th - 7th.

Good vibes are promised with “a resident DJ on the decks, a ‘Claw and Win machine,’ and a bunch of chill-out zones to kick back and enjoy your first sip.”

The catch? There will be a strict limit of one pack per person, and it goes without saying that this one is of course for peeps 18+.

 “I first tried White Claw while travelling overseas and really enjoyed it," Kiwi artist Lance Savali said. "To have it finally land in Aotearoa is exciting.”

White Claw blasted onto the scene in the U.S. back in 2016 and has since become a staple American bevvy, spotted in the hands of big-time celebs, influencers, and even in movies.

The rest of NZ will be able to grab a pack when they finally drop in bottle shops later this month.
