ABSOLUT® Vodka's Flavor Portfolio Comes Into Full Bloom With The Introduction Of ABSOLUT® HIBISKUS Inspired by the Caribbean, Hibiscus and Pomegranate Flavors Pack a Floral Punch PR Newswire NEW YORK, Jan. 11, 2013 NEW YORK, Jan. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --Blooming on back bars and store shelves in January 2013 is the latest addition to the award-winning and trend-forward ABSOLUT flavor portfolio – ABSOLUT® HIBISKUS. Like its namesake flower, ABSOLUT HIBISKUS is a showstopper with a unique blend of hibiscus, a beautiful, tropical flower; and pomegranate, once considered the fruit of royalty for its rich, red color and glistening seeds. In traditional fashion, ABSOLUT HIBISKUS is at the forefront of today's hottest flavor trends and opens the doors to creative bartending with inspiration delivered straight from the garden. (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130111/NY40934LOGO ) "In recent years, a sophisticated trend has emerged, as more and more bartenders are adding floral ingredients to the mix," said Eric Horowitz, Senior Brand Manager - ABSOLUT, Pernod Ricard USA. "The distinctive combination of Hibiskus will appeal to consumers who have tired of the confectionary flavored vodka category and are looking for something for a more refined palate with no added sugar or preservatives." The slightly acidic, berry-flavor hibiscus underlined by the sweet notes of pomegranate creates the intriguing ABSOLUT HIBISKUS. Made from all natural ingredients with no added sugar, ABSOLUT HIBISKUS is versatile and easy to mix. The finish is long, smooth and slightly sweet with floral and fruity notes that work beautifully with cranberry or ruby red grapefruit juice.

Since then, ABSOLUT has continued to bring a unique twist to common flavors with products such as ABSOLUT® MANDRIN®, ABSOLUT® CITRON, ABSOLUT® KURANT®, ABSOLUT® VANILIA, ABSOLUT® RASPBERRI, ABSOLUT® APEACH®, ABSOLUT® RUBY RED, ABSOLUT® PEARS, ABSOLUT® MANGO, ABSOLUT® BERRI ACAI, ABOSLUT® WILD TEA, ABSOLUT® ORIENT APPLE, ABSOLUT® GRAPEVINE and ABSOLUT© CHERRYKRAN.
