Canada’s favourite brunch cocktail – the Caesar – is enjoyed by some 350 million Canadians every year. If you’ve not tried Walter, the premium, all-natural mix since it first launched in 2013, the time is now. Not only is this most delicious product the brainchild of co-founders Zack Silverman and Aaron Harowitz, both born and raised in Vancouver; Walter is Canada’s first Ocean Wise recommended Caesar mix.
Caesar mix isn’t just amped up tomato juice. In the case of Walter, ocean-friendly clam juice (which is what makes this different from, and arguably way better than a Bloody Mary) is harvested sustainably from the North Atlantic, mixed with all natural ingredients and free of MSG, high fructose corn syrup, artificial colours and flavours.
The Ocean Wise designation is the Vancouver Aquarium’s assurance for an ocean-friendly seafood choice that helps ensure the health of the oceans for generations to come. The Ocean Wise symbol on Walter’s label helps eco-conscious consumers shop smart.
Cool factoid? The Caesar is a Canadian invention, and first developed in Calgary, Alberta by bartender Walter Chell in 1969. Thus, the ‘Walter’ name for this tasty mixer.
Walter is also the proud winner of 19 Medals at International Spirits Competitions, including 9 Gold Medals.
