US: Skyy adds pineapple to Infusions line
Skyy Spirits has expanded its Skyy Vodka Infusions All Natural line to include a pineapple flavour for the US market.
All Natural Pineapple joins the Infusions portfolio of Citrus, Cherry, Passion Fruit, Raspberry and Grape, the company said today (17 February).
The new flavour is available from this month in 50ml (US$1.99 MSRP), 750ml ($18.49 MSRP) and 1L ($26.49 MSRP) size bottle.
"As the first pineapple vodka infused with real fruit, Skyy Infusions Pineapple showcases the flavour of one of the most popular and versatile fruits," said Jason Daniel, senior brand manager for Skyy Vodka.
Skyy Infusions was launched in April 2008 by Skyy Spirits, a wholly owned subsidiary of Gruppo Campari.
