– SMIRNOFF Wild Honey and SMIRNOFF Cinna-Sugar Twist Flavored Vodkas Take Adult Holiday Cravings to the Next Level
The brisk weather days spark a little more excitement as SMIRNOFF® announces two crave-worthy and versatile flavor experiences, created from award-winning SMIRNOFF Vodka. Triple distilled for exceptional smoothness and supreme clarity, SMIRNOFF Wild Honey Flavored Vodka and Cinna-Sugar Twist Flavored Vodka are perfect for every Fall occasion, from a night out with friends to an evening curled by the fire.
"Honey is a huge flavor in the spirits industry right now, and SMIRNOFF's aim was to deliver a liquid that embodies the sweet, smooth flavor like never before – the fruity notes really add an interesting twist. Cinnamon is another flavor bringing heat – literally and figuratively – to the spirits industry. Cinna-Sugar Twist embodies the taste of a fresh pastry that's sprinkled with the bite of cinnamon," said Dan Kleinman, Brand Director of SMIRNOFF. "The unique flavor combinations of both of these products pair well with an array of hot and cold cocktails, making the duo a must-have for at-home bars or to enjoy when out with friends. These adult treats will be a welcomed addition to the lineup of responsible celebrations that come with every holiday season."
SMIRNOFF Wild Honey combines the pure taste of golden honey with a floral fruitiness. The warm taste of real honey coupled with the soft, creamy finish pairs perfectly with other spirits such as bourbons, rums and liqueurs, while also complementing an array of mixers such as cold brew tea and cider.
SMIRNOFF Cinna-Sugar Twist is a deliciously tempting liquid reminiscent of a flaky cinnamon treat and adds an exciting spike to cocktails when mixed with a range of flavors from grapefruit juice to ginger beer. The bite of cinnamon and irresistible sweetness, make it the ideal base for seasonal and holiday cocktails.
