A Look into Sunlit Agave Wine Cocktails

Looking for a fun, light, and delicious way to stay refreshed now that things are heating up, well Sunlit Agave Wine Cocktails might be the perfect drink for you this summer! We always love to hear from businesses who have found success using our stamps and we were lucky enough to speak with Corrie Hutchens of Sunlit and discuss how they have incorporated rubber stamps into their business strategy.

Can you tell us a little bit more about Sunlit Agave Wine Cocktails?

Lower ABV cocktails are perfect for people who don't want to give up their booze, but who want to take it a little easier. It's a great option for people who want to be more mindful and healthy when it comes to drinking. Sunlit modern-day cocktails were crafted with these modern-day people in mind. Each glass of Sunlit is equivalent to one glass of wine (12% ABV) which is less than half the booziness of a traditional, restaurant-style margarita (25%-35% ABV). By fermenting 100% Blue Agave to produce wine (instead of distilling it to make Tequila), we can serve up a premium cocktail with the same signature flavor while being lighter, smoother, and refreshingly easy to sip. As we at Sunlit like to say, our lower ABV cocktails are always ready to drink.

What is the story behind how this company came to be?

It all started in 2020. Like so many other women, Noel, Cathy, and Corrie, who had met through mutual industry connections, we're all feeling the gendered impact of the pandemic which was disproportionately affecting women. They had a front-row seat to the widening of gender inequalities as they watched many of the women in their network take a step back from their careers due to increased time and demands in domestic work, child care, and homeschooling. As such, they felt inspired to create a company that would have products with a purpose - promoting gender equality and challenging societal notions about a woman’s role in this world while also bringing women together.

With Noel’s creative mind, Corrie’s knack for marketing and launching new products, and Cathy’s entrepreneurial and operational know-how, they began thinking about launching their own line of cocktails that would not only taste great and be made from real ingredients, but that would also challenge the rules about what modern cocktails (and women!) should be.

From there, they established Girl Crush Brands and brought in Christina Russo, a leading female mixologist in Los Angeles, to help them create the recipes for their very first brand-SUNLIT. With Christina’s help, they were able to develop a full range of ready-to-drink cocktails including their Blue Sky Margarita and Poolside Paloma. Because each serving is approximately equivalent to a glass of wine, they knew that they had created the perfect line of cocktails for modern-day drinking.

Through Girl Crush Brands and SUNLIT, Noel, Cathy, and Corrie hope to partner with other female-founded brands and companies and to continue to introduce new brands and products into the marketplace that serve to empower women. They also hope their work inspires more women to adopt their mantra: When life hands you limes, turn them into margaritas...and Thirst For Better!

What makes Sunlit Agave Wine Cocktails unique?

We like to say that Sunlit Agave Wine Cocktails are #PremiumAF (Agave Fermentation). By fermenting 100% Blue Agave to produce wine (instead of distilling it to make Tequila) we're able to serve up a premium cocktail with the same signature flavor while being lighter, smoother and refreshingly easy to sip.

We really love your logo for the stamp. What was your inspiration behind it?

Our logo was designed by one of our founders (Noel) who happens to be an amazing creative powerhouse. She drew inspiration from both the blue agave that grows in the field and the sun high above in the sky, which represents and reinforced the idea that these are agave cocktails that are meant to be sipped under the sun.

How are you using your stamps? Why Rubberstamps.com?

We are using these stamps on the outside of our corrugate boxes that we will use to fulfill all of our DTC orders. As a start-up, we are always looking for scrappy ways to bring our brand to life in a way that looks premium and polished but without having to commit to high order minimums for pre-printed boxes. These stamps are a beautiful, cost-effective way to brand our boxes.
