BELVEDERE LAUNCHES NEW

 ‘MANGO PASSION’ VODKA FLAVOR

 

January 27, 2014, New York, NY, Belvedere, the world’s first super premium vodka, is pleased to announce the launch of its newest creation, Belvedere Mango Passion – a refreshing tropical addition to Belvedere Vodka’s collection of award-winning flavored vodkas.

 

Belvedere Mango Passion is distilled with five exceptional ingredients including fresh mangoes and aromatic passion fruit, along with fragrant hints of citrus, mandarin, tangerine, and zesty lime. Belvedere’s all natural approach ensures its vodka is made with real fruit and no sugar added. The result is a mouth-watering blend of fruits to create the quintessential drink to elevate any occasion.

 

Belvedere’s unparalleled flavor process delicately draws out the flavors from the highest quality, all natural ingredients and combines them with Belvedere’s super-premium vodka. By gently soaking the five fruit ingredients in Belvedere, it allows the vodka to extract the flavor and aromas, in a process called ‘maceration.’  Once the ingredients and the vodka are distilled together, a beautiful creation of Mango Passion is the result.

 

Belvedere Mango Passion is perfectly enjoyed with tonic water or ginger ale, garnished with a slice of lemon or squeeze of lime.  Drinks such as the Mango Mule and Mango Cosmopolitan are prime examples of savory spring/summer cocktails that can be created from the deliciously tropical and aromatic Mango Passion.         

 

“The sweet, fruity and tropical flavor of mango makes it one of the world’s most widely consumed fruits,” says Claire Smith, Head of Spirit Creation & Mixology. “By using only real fruit with no sugar added, this, paired with the aromatic character of passion fruit and the zesty, refreshing nature of mandarins, tangerines and limes makes the introduction of Belvedere Mango Passion one of our most exciting flavor launches to date.”

 

Belvedere Mango Passion will be available in a 750 ml and 1 Liter bottle starting at $34.99.
