Beam Global Spirits & Wine Introduces Pucker Flavored VodkaMay 3, 2011
DEERFIELD, Ill. -- Fans of flavored vodka finally have the naturally flavored vodka they have been looking for with the launch of new Pucker Flavored Vodka from Beam Global Spirits & Wine. By borrowing the award-winning flavor expertise of Pucker Cordials to create a distinctive flavored vodka drinking experience, Pucker Flavored Vodka stands out as a flavored vodka worthy of being called a flavored vodka. Unlike other flavored vodkas, Pucker Vodka relies on fruit – apples, grapes, cherries and oranges – to create its bold natural flavors.
"We created a vodka for a new generation of fans who understand that the brands they choose say a lot about who they are and where they're going. As a leader and innovator, Beam Global Spirits & Wine saw this as an opportunity to reach this generation within a growing category," said Kim Washington, senior director, Vodkas for Beam Global Spirits & Wine. "Pucker Flavored Vodka gives flavored-vodka drinkers the opportunity to liven up their old cocktail regime and pair with distinct tastes that perfectly suit their playful personalities."
Which one fits your flavor profile?
Pucker Vodka offers full-bodied fruit flavors that reflect the playful personalities of flavored-vodka drinkers, including:
Sour Apple Sass: Crisp and tart Granny Smith Apple taste
Grape Gone Wild: Fresh sweetness of concord grapes
Cherry Tease: Tangy, deep cherry bite with a touch of berries
Citrus Squeeze: Juicy orange and tangerine burst
Pucker Vodka is 70 proof and made using all natural ingredients. Distilled four times for clarity and smoothness with only the sweetness of all natural fruit, Pucker Flavored Vodka provides a taste that is balanced and confident enough to enjoy with a simple mixer, served straight-up or in a playful cocktail creation.
To demonstrate its stand-out and unique flavor, Pucker Flavored Vodka recommends these new cocktails:
Sweet & Sour Apple
2 parts Pucker Sour Apple Sass Vodka
