Belvedere creates RTD vodka sodasBy Kate Malczewski
Polish producer Belvedere has entered the ready-to-drink category with a canned range of organic vodka sodas, launching exclusively in Australia.
The Belvedere Organic Infusions Vodka Soda collection features three flavours: Lemon & Basil with a Touch of Elderflower; Blackberry & Lemongrass with Hint of Sage; and Pear & Ginger with a Drop of Linden Honey.
Each flavour is made with Polish rye vodka, organic fruit and botanicals, and sparkling water, inspired by Belvedere’s Organic Infusions line of flavoured vodkas, which debuted earlier this year.
The EU- and USDA-certified-organic RTD range was created to quench the thirst for ‘natural, organic, lower-calorie and sugar-free alcohol options’. Each 250ml can clocks in between 80 and 83 calories.
The tinned vodka sodas are now available at select retailers across Australia for AU$28 (US$20.59) per four pack.
A multitude of producers have unveiled RTD products over the past months, from Diageo’s new Australian brand Reeftip to Whitebox, the canned range created by bartenders Alex Lawrence and Pietro Collina.
