SAN FRANCISCO, Aug. 19, 2014 /PRNewswire/ — SVEDKA Vodka, the second largest imported vodka brand in the United States (Impact, 2012), is pleased to announce its latest flavor addition to the portfolio: SVEDKA Peach.
A blend of imported Swedish vodka with aromatic notes of ripe peaches that produce a warm, sweet entry followed by a slight, crisp, pear finish, SVEDKA Peach provides a multi-sensory flavor experience. This subtly sweet and deliciously fruity peach flavored vodka is a nostalgic yet unexpected interpretation on a flavor favorite. SVEDKA Peach is an approachable, yet complex product and is a welcome addition to the SVEDKA line of innovative offerings. Versatile and flavorful, SVEDKA Peach mixes well in sweet, or savory, cocktails – and may also be sipped on its own, over ice.
SVEDKA Peach will be available nationwide beginning August 2014 (varies by market) in 50ML (MSRP $1.99), 375ML (MSRP $6.99), 750ML (MSRP $12.99), 1L (MSRP $16.99) and 1.75L (MSRP $21.99).
