Sobieski Vodka Introduces Two New Flavors: Sobieski Cytron and Sobieski Vanilia

Everyone was in high spirits at Wolfgang Puck’s Spago Restaurant in Beverly Hills on October 21st  of last week. Sobieski Vodka spirits that is.  Imperial Brands, Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Belvédère S.A hosted an elegant cocktail party where the A-listers of Hollywood got a first-rate introduction to Sobieski Vodka’s new flavored vodkas, Sobieski Cytron and Sobieski Vanilia. Noted for its quality, affordability, Polish craftsmanship and authenticity, the two new flavors are an extension of their flagship Sobieski vodka brand, the #1 premium vodka in Poland and one of the world’s best-selling and fastest growing vodka brands.

“Recognizing the public and industry’s demand for flavored vodka, we selected two celebrated, yet pure and savory extensions,” says Timo Sutinen, VP Marketing & Business Development, Imperial Brands, Inc.  “We are delighted to add Cytron and Vanilia to the Sobieski family.  They are exceptionally smooth vodkas with taste profiles incomparable to any other premium vodka brand.”

Truth Vodka

Sobieski Vodka launched in the U.S. in 2007 with its “Truth in Vodka” marketing campaign that urges consumers to focus on what’s in the bottle, rather than on gimmicky marketing techniques and overpriced packaging. This back-to-basics, anti-hype campaign helped Sobieski Vodka break the sales record for a newly-introduced spirit where in 2008, 255,000 cases of Sobieski were sold in the U.S. in the first full calendar year.  The Imperial Brands management team is determined to reach its goal for Sobieski to become the fastest new vodka brand to reach the one million-case sales milestone.

Fine Polish Vodka

Sobieski Vanilia and Cytron are authentic Polish vodkas made from the finest Dankowski Rye with natural vanilla and citrus flavor. Vanilia’s colorless vodka has mellow brown sugar and hazelnut tones on the nose with a rich, buttery texture. A crystal clear spirit, Sobieski Cytron reveals a zesty and crisp nose. The bold, succulent taste leads to a fresh and irresistibly smooth finish.

Sobieski Vodka

Sobieski Vanilia and Sobieski Cytron vodkas are available nationwide at the suggested retail price of $10.99 (750ml).
