The Absolut Company introduces: THE RELAUNCH OF FRÏS®, THE WORLD’S ONLY FREEZE-DISTILLED VODKA

Press Release   •   Jul 23, 2012 15:29 GMT

Invented in Scandinavia, Frïs is created through a patented freeze-distillation process unlike any other. While most vodkas use heat to remove impurities, Frïs is using a continuous distillation process and then it is chilled to 14 F (-10C). The process allows impurities to be frozen and extracted so only the purest, most refreshing flavor remains. The result is a smooth, dynamic vodka that captures the spirit of Scandinavia, where high standards are a priority, great design is revered and innovation is a way of life.

To mark its relaunch, Frïs has created a dramatic new bottle design inspired by the brand’s geographic roots. A chiseled ice-grey exterior embodies the deep chill of the Nordics and marks a confident departure from the staid packaging of traditional vodka brands. 

“We’re incredibly excited to reintroduce this innovative vodka to the U.S. market,” said Dan Lundberg, Global Marketing Director for Frïs. “No other vodka is created in quite the same way as Frïs. Now it has a bottle that is just as unique.”

Reinforcing its heritage as a leader in innovative spirits development, Frïs has formulated two new Frïs flavors that deliver a delicious, shivering sensation with every sip. Frïs Citrus Freeze marries the purity of freeze-distilled vodka to the clean, crisp taste of freshly cut citrus fruit. Frïs Orange Freeze elevates the intensity of juicy orange with the light freshness of mandarin.

Best enjoyed ice-cold, the full range of flavors will be available in the United States beginning in mid-July.

“There are many flavors out there but none give the shivering sensation of the new Frïs flavors,” said Maxime Kouchnir, Vice President, Vodka, Pernod Ricard USA. “They take familiar flavors to a new level and add a refreshing edge to your favorite drinks.”
