The wine and spirits division of LVMH, Moet Hennessy, has released an illuminated bottle for its Belvedere vodka brand in the UK.

The unit, which posted a healthy set of full-year results for 2012 earlier this year, said earlier this week that the 175cl bottle, pictured right, will target the high-end on-trade in the country. Released this month, the 175cl size variant will feature a single-use LED in waterproof plastic that will light up the bottle when switched on.

Although the bottle will also be available at selected off-trade outlets, retailing at around GBP84.99 (US$130.50), Moet Hennessy hopes the move will “strengthen Belvedere’s presence in the nightclub sector”.

The illuminated design was previously only available on bottle sizes three-litre and above.
