An exquisite new flavour: ABSOLUT CHERRYKRAN – the latest flavour sensation from ABSOLUT VODKA
“We continue to innovate within the flavoured vodka segment," says Nodjame Fouad, Global Marketing Director at The Absolut Company. "Our first forays into flavour – ABSOLUT PEPPAR and ABSOLUT CITRON – came at a time when no other vodka brands had experimented with flavour. We're driven by a passion to invent – to find new and exciting combinations that inspire consumers to sense the infinite possibilities of mixology.”
ABSOLUT CHERRYKRAN has a fresh, fruity and smooth taste with notes of ripe berries and natural sweetness. It has a warm feel, with and a long, slightly sweet finish. As with all members of the ABSOLUT VODKA family, ABSOLUT CHERRYKRAN is made from all-natural ingredients and contains no sugar.
"With ABSOLUT CHERRYKRAN, we've created a unique, modern flavour that brings together the richness of cherries, a smooth hint of white cranberries and the sweetness of plum in a sophisticated spirit that’s ideal for mixing," says Nodjame Fouad, Global Marketing Director at The Absolut Company.
The bottle design for ABSOLUT CHERRYKRAN is orient-inspired, bright and poetic. "Our goal with the design was to convey richness and beauty, and to evoke the effervescent magic of springtime cherry blossoms,” says Global Design Director Anna Kamjou.
