Beam Suntory Inc. Key Developments

Beam Suntory, Inc. Expands its Effen Vodka Lineup with Three New Flavors

Beam Suntory Inc. has expanded its Effen Vodka lineup with three new flavors, Blood Orange Vodka, Green Apple Vodka and Raspberry Vodka. An innovative vodka flavor, EFFEN Blood Orange offers a sweet citrus zest, and lingering, smooth finish. EFFEN Green Apple has a sweet apple taste with an accent of tartness and mild, smooth sweetness with a short finish. EFFEN Raspberry, a refined reformulation of EFFEN Dutch Raspberry, offers a combination of natural raspberry flavors with a light, crisp taste they won't find anywhere else. The release of these exciting, new flavors comes after a breakout year for EFFEN Vodka, which doubled its business in 2015, thanks in part to its brand partnership with rapper and entrepreneur 50 Cent. This collaboration, which includes integrations in social media, retail programming and brand-sponsored events, as well as in 50 Cent's performances, music videos and network, has already succeeded in introducing EFFEN to thousands of new, legal-purchase-age fans and will continue as the brand expands its flavor offerings. Like all of the brand's established flavors, EFFEN Blood Orange, EFFEN Green Apple and EFFEN Raspberry are each made using natural ingredients and 100% premium wheat from Northern France and are filtrated and distilled in Northern Holland. The new EFFEN Vodka flavors are now available at select retailers nationwide with a suggested retail price of $26.99 for a 750mL bottle. Made from 100% premium wheat, using a continuous distillation process and bottled with a stylish and functional hand-applied sleeve, EFFEN Vodka is a true testament of Super Premium Vodka.

Beam Suntory Inc to Launch Jim Beam Citrus Highball RTD Beverage

Beam Suntory Inc. has announced that it will introduce the new Jim Beam Citrus Highball ready to drink, or RTD, beverage. By tapping into the global consumer trend for refreshment, Coca-Cola Amatil and brand partner Beam Suntory are backing the new Citrus Highball to unlock long-term growth in the RTD market by giving existing bourbon drinkers a refreshing alternative to keep them in the category longer, and appealing to new drinkers of both genders to extend the bourbon occasion. Available nationwide from Coca-Cola Amatil from August 8, the Citrus Highball blends the mild, natural sweetness of Jim Beam bourbon with the sharp, crisp flavours of three specifically selected varieties of grapefruit to create a refreshing alternative to beer or cider.
