The tagline, “be UV” inspires consumers to be as original, bright and colorful
as UV Vodka’s 17 flavors. Incorporating lifestyle photography and engaging
brand language, the creative execution’s goal is to establish a deeper
connection between consumers and UV Vodka.

“‘be UV’ is a permission slip to be yourself,” said Periscope Creative
Director, Scott Dahl. “It's both a celebration and a call-to-action that
invites people to be bold, unique and bright, just like UV Vodka.”

The campaign launches with a new website, an interactive photo sharing tool,
print and online advertising, sponsored events and newly designed social
media. Roepke Public Relations will support the campaign with media relations.

Tablet and smartphone friendly, the website is designed with an electric color
palette, new cocktail photography, imagery emphasizing UV’s natural
ingredients and brightly filtered images of real UV fans.

The “UV Ad yourself” photo sharing tool allows users to upload pictures of
themselves with a custom editing feature. Fans choose from an array of
headlines and colored lenses to create their own “be UV” advertisement. Select
photos will be featured on the website and in national advertisements. The “UV
Ad yourself” tool is built into the website and accessible for mobile and
tablet platforms. A new Facebook app allows users to share their “be UV”
advertisement instantly.

“The new campaign is a strategic marketing shift for UV Vodka,” said Phillips
Director of Marketing, Katie Alvino “‘be UV’ reflects the originality of our
flavors and the authenticity of our brand. The campaign gives new meaning to
the UV Vodka experience, building a brand affinity with consumers and driving
business globally.”

UV Vodka is distilled four times for premium quality and activated carbon
filtered to ensure the highest level of purity and the perfect pH balance.UV
Vodka is an IMPACT! Magazine “Hot Brand” award winner for eight consecutive
years.
