Edringtons Snow Leopard launched in Singapore last week

Edrington's Snow Leopard launched in Singapore last week

Edrington is to launch Snow Leopard in Vietnam and Taiwan as it continues to expand the vodka brand's Asian footprint. 

The move, confirmed to just-drinks today, follows the Polish vodka's rollout in Singapore last week and in South Korea in June. "There is a strong emerging market for premium white spirits in south east Asia", a spokesperson for Edrington said.

The super premium vodka category in the region last year grew by 7%, the spokesperson added, citing IWSR figures. Snow Leopard is being made available in selected bars and premium retailers in Singapore for SGD118 (US$94) a bottle, according to Edrington.

The company supports conservation efforts with snow leopards and gives 15% of Snow Leopard's profits to protect the endangered animals. A charity event for the Singapore launch donated all proceeds to the Snow Leopard Trust.
