Premium vodka brand JJ Whitley has added two new flavoured expressions to its portfolio – Peach & Apricot and Apple & Lime.
The two vodkas feature “on tend autumnal flavours” and are bottled at 38% ABV.
Whitley Peach & Apricot boasts “an aroma of freshly picked, summer ripened orchard stone fruits and peach notes”. It can be used to create simple serves, mixed with peach iced tea or prosecco for a twist on a Bellini, or in the Just Peachy cocktail (recipe below).
The second new addition is JJ Whitley Apple & Lime. It is said to offer subtle notes of tart green apples with a lingering hint of zesty, freshly peeled lime. JJ Whitley suggests pairing the “versatile” vodka with a range of mixers, such as cranberry juice or lemonade. Alternatively, venues can serve Apple a Day (recipe below).
Kelly Coughlan, international marketing manager for white spirits at Halewood Artisanal Spirits, said: “We know that consumers are increasingly looking for quality spirits with strong provenance, and the JJ Whitley portfolio is perfectly positioned to deliver on this.
“As flavoured vodka continues to see strong growth, with consumers increasingly looking for new and innovative flavour combinations, our versatile Peach & Apricot and Apple & Lime variants, with their on trend flavour profiles, smooth vodka and accessible price point, will provide licensees with a strong, premium flavoured vodka portfolio to tap into this growing trend.”
