|JACKSONVILLE, Fla., May 8, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — International Spirits, LLC, creator and importer of the award-winning, premium imported Ivanabitch Vodka, Gin and Brandy, and Ivana B Skinny low calorie, ready-to-drink cocktails, has added Dutch Apple and Cherry to its Ivanabitch Vodka product line.The new Ivanabitch Dutch Apple Vodka and Cherry Vodka began shipping to the company’s 23-state distribution network in April. The new flavors are available in three sizes — 375ML, 750ML and 1.75L.
Ivanabitch Vodka has built its reputation for delivering a top-shelf quality product at a value price point. The company sold approximately 300,000 cases of spirits in 2012. The award-winning spirits are available in nearly 7,000 locations in 23 states.
The two new flavors, imported from the Netherlands, are made using Ivanabitch’s gold medal-winning vodka. The premium, imported vodka is distilled five times and filtered over active charcoal; then natural flavoring is added.
“Flavored vodkas are a growing trend, because they appeal to a broader demographic of consumers,” said Tony Elward, president and CEO of International Spirits. “In fact, more women are switching to cocktails with flavored vodkas as their drink of choice.”
The Ivanabitch Vodka flavor line includes Peach, Red Berry, Coconut, Blackberry, Whipped Cream, Lemmon, Orange and Vanilla vodkas.
“Dutch Apple and Cherry are natural compliments to our eight existing vodka flavors,” Elward added. “We plan to introduce four more flavors in 2013.”
