AMSTERDAM, August 14, 2017 /PRNewswire/ --

CÎROC ultra-premium vodka is today celebrating the arrival of its newest luxury addition to the global collection of CÎROC flavours: CÎROC French Vanilla.

The all-year celebration flavour is being launched with a hero CÎROC-Star Martini serve, tapping into the ever-growing popularity of the Porn Star Martini.

Wills continued, "The Porn Star Martini is hot, climbing fast on the ladder of the top trending cocktails and we're seeing it being asked for more and more across our markets. Its combination of smooth vanilla vodka mixed with an array of vibrantly tangy ingredients, topped off with a dash of champagne, makes it the ultimate celebration cocktail.

"CÎROC French Vanilla offers an intensely luxurious route to creating the ultimate Porn Star Martini, which is why our new hero serve for French Vanilla is the CÎROC-Star Martini."

CÎROC French Vanilla and the CÎROC-Star Martini will be rolled-out in the on and off trade across global markets - including the US, the UK and Global Travel - from October 2017.

Wills concluded: "CÎROC French Vanilla taps into the developing consumer interest in luxury and meets the growing consumer demand for ultra-premium flavoured vodka, while capitalising on the growing popularity and dynamism of CÎROC."

Spirits Spotlight: Vrai Vodka Drinks Offer Organic Excellence

 

 

CHICAGO, June 29, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Vrai Vodka Drinks is bringing its selection of organic craft alcohol beverages to the masses.

Vrai Tangerine, Vrai Green Tea and Vrai Paloma are now available across select retail outlets in the Midwest, Florida, California, Texas and New Jersey. Vrai Vodka Drinks is carving out its own niche on crowded retail shelves by offering a great-tasting, all-organic, natural ingredient option in the fast-growing packaged spirits beverage category. These products are packaged in eye-catching Ardagh 12 oz. Sleek beverage cans, taking advantage of the best in environmental considerations as cans are recycled at more than double the rate of any other beverage package.

Nicholas Piekoszewski, Managing Partner, Vrai Drinks, says it was time for consumers to be offered a truly organic spirit beverage with full ingredient disclosure. "Most other drinks in the flavored malt beverage or spirits category contain high-fructose corn syrup, artificial flavors and colors and preservatives," he asserts. "Our vodka drinks are certified organic, gluten-free and all natural, with full disclosure of our ingredients on every product. The result is exceptional taste as well. It's like ordering a fresh craft cocktail at your favorite bar and then having it packaged in great looking cans."

Nicholas says the company's choice to package Vrai in aluminum beverage cans is to take advantage of the inherent benefits of the package, including portability as cans are allowed at pools, beaches and golf courses. "And we can use the entire surface of the can to showcase our brand and ingredients in a colorful way, where other pack types are limited in terms of space," he says.

Claude Marbach, CEO, Ardagh Metal – Beverage North America, says the company is excited to support Vrai as it extends its reach across the country. "Vrai is a great example of a growing brand gaining increasing acceptance from a consumer base more concerned about exactly what ingredients are in the products they choose," he said. "And beverage cans are a great way to reach these consumers in a very efficient way as cans deliver the best in filling, distribution and retail display economics."

It's extending the availability of Vrai that Nicholas says the company is focused on now. "We'll be adding many more states in the next few months, with full coverage of the US by next year," he says. "We'll then look to international distribution as we continue to grow the Vrai brand and business as reaction to our products continues to be extraordinary."

Spirits Spotlight: Absolut® Unveils Launch of New Absolut Lime

 

 

Absolut Steps Into the Limelight with Debut of Absolut Lime at the 59th GRAMMY® Awards®

NEW YORK, Jan. 17, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Today, Absolut® officially unveils Absolut Lime as the newest, most refreshingly versatile addition to round out the iconic Absolut citrus portfolio, joining Absolut Citron and Absolut Mandrin – the No. 1 selling lemon and orange-flavored vodkas in the U.S1. In addition to hitting nightlife destinations and at-home bar carts nationwide, Absolut Lime will step into the "limelight" at the 59th GRAMMY® Awards® on February 12, 2017. The brand's multifaceted sponsorship will include TV, digital, social and a signature GRAMMY® Awards® cocktail – the Absolut Limelight.

Nearly 30 years ago, Absolut introduced Absolut Citron – a flavor that quickly skyrocketed into pop culture as a key ingredient in the Cosmopolitan cocktail. Ten years later, Absolut Mandrin further diversified the brand's flavor line-up offering the perfect hint of sweetness. And like its citrus counterparts, new Absolut Lime features its own distinct flavor profile with a balance of full-bodied citrus flavor with a light finish.

"Lime is a very dynamic and complex fruit and we believe we've created the perfect flavor blend in Absolut Lime to enhance and elevate a variety of cocktails," said Nick Guastaferro, Director of Marketing, Absolut, Pernod Ricard USA. "Thanks to a delicious flavor and easy mixability, Absolut Lime is great for going out or staying in, for creating simple or complex cocktails. We can't wait to see how our fans take Absolut Lime and make it their own to create their Absolut Nights."

Absolut Lime embodies the brand's ongoing commitment to superior quality vodka.  Like every drop of Absolut Vodka found anywhere in the world, the new flavor is produced in a small village in Southern Sweden named Ahus. Ahus is Absolut's One Source, where high-quality ingredients come from the hands of trans-generational farmers with an unwavering commitment to produce superior, high-quality vodka – all within a small, 75 mile radius.

Absolut Lime Debuts at the 59th GRAMMY® Awards®

Superior flavored vodka deserves a star-studded debut. As the official spirits partner of the 59th GRAMMY® Awards®  the spotlight will shine on Absolut Lime, refreshing Music's Biggest Night® with the, "Absolut Limelight."

With a refreshing mix of soda, ginger ale and Absolut Lime – the Absolut Limelight will be featured throughout the GRAMMY® Awards® in TV, digital and social channels giving viewers, music and nightlife fans alike the chance to toast alongside their favorite artists.

"We can't think of a better place to officially launch Absolut Lime than the GRAMMY Awards," says Guastaferro. "Music has an inherent ability to bring people together in unique, unexpected ways – which is at the heart of Absolut's DNA as a leader in nightlife, inclusivity and unexpected social connections. Absolut Lime offers a new, refreshingly simple way for consumers to reimagine their cocktail, nightlife and social scenes."

Absolut Lime Cocktails Designed for Sipping, Savoring and Celebrating
Absolut Lime is available nationwide for an MSRP of $19.99 (750ml) and $24.99 (1L). Its refreshingly light flavor profile provides the perfect canvas to bring together a variety of ingredients, creating cocktails that range from simple to complex, including:

Absolut Limelight: The Signature GRAMMY® Week Cocktail
2 parts Absolut Lime
2 parts soda
2 parts ginger ale
½ part fresh lime

Build in a highball over ice. Garnish with lime stirrer skewered with accordion cucumber.

Absolut Lime Drop

¾ part Simple Syrup

Combine all ingredients and shake with ice. Strain into a shot glass. Garnish with sugared lime.

Spirits News: Beach Whiskey Company Acquires American Harvest® Organic Vodka

 

 

Award-winning craft organic vodka highlights farm-to-bottle movement

CARMEL, Ind., Jan. 11, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- The Beach Whiskey Company, a national spirits company, announced today its acquisition of American Harvest Vodka®, an American-made organic vodka, which merges the farm-to-bottle movement with the exploding craft spirits category.

American Harvest Vodka was created by the Sidney Frank Importing Company (SFIC) in 2011 and gained a strong national foothold by 2014. When SFIC was acquired by Jägermeister of Germany in 2015, the Frank family retained ownership of the brand. The sale of American Harvest to the Beach Whiskey Company returns the brand to one of its creators, Bill Henderson, now Chief Marketing Officer of Beach Whiskey.  Terms of the deal were not disclosed.

"Organic and craft spirits have shown significant growth over the past five years, and Double Gold Medal-winner American Harvest has already shown its ability to stand apart from other super-premium vodkas," said Smoke Wallin, CEO, Beach Whiskey Company. "Now is the time for a national organic craft vodka, and American Harvest Vodka fits seamlessly into the Beach Whiskey portfolio while accelerating our national growth plans. Distributors who previously carried American Harvest are eager to have it back, and this is creating additional opportunities for the Beach Whiskey portfolio."

American Harvest is handcrafted in small batches from American wheat and distilled with 100 percent certified organic ingredients to yield a distinctly smooth spirit with a crisp, clean and slightly sweet hint of real agave. The wheat is estate grown from a single family farm, and the water is from a protected source beneath the Snake River Water basin.

"American Harvest is a brand near and dear to my heart," said John Frank, former Chairman of Sidney Frank Importing Company and new member of the Beach Whiskey Advisory Board. "We went to incredible lengths to ensure purity from farm to bottle in creating this truly American spirit.  I'm pleased to see American Harvest in the hands of Beach Whiskey's very capable team, and I look forward to contributing to their portfolio's exciting growth."

"While craft spirits have taken off, so too are consumers becoming increasingly focused on the provenance of their food. They want to know who raises their beef and from which farm their fruits and vegetables are sourced," said Bill Henderson, Beach Whiskey CMO. "American Harvest Vodka was created because we believe the same can and should be true for spirits."

American Harvest Vodka (40% ABV) will be returning to shelves across the country and is expected to regain its national footprint in 2017. SRP: $24.99/750ml.

About The Beach Whiskey Company
The Beach Whiskey Company is a disruptive brand innovator in the adult beverage space that is building a portfolio of rapidly growing national brands. The Beach Whiskey portfolio includes Beach Whiskey Bonfire Cinnamon™, Beach Whiskey Island Coconut™ and American Harvest Organic Vodka®.
