MGP Ingredients’ Luxco Vita Frute Blood Orange RTD – Product Launch

Luxco, the US distiller purchased by MGP Ingredients this year, has added a Blood Orange flavour to its Vita Frute range of vodka soda RTDs.

MGP’s Luxco Vita Frute Blood Orange

Category – RTD, vodka-based, 5% abv

Available – From this month

Location – The US

Price – SRP of around US$9.99 per four-pack of 35.5cl cans

Luxco, the US distiller acquired by MGP Ingredients earlier this year, has added a Blood Orange flavour to its Vita Frute range of vodka soda RTDs.

The extension joins Lime Basil, Pineapple Coconut and Grapefruit in the Vita Frute range and will be available in a four-pack and a variety pack. All Vita Frute RTDs are made with vodka and contain 100 calories per 35.5cl can and no sugar.

In January, MGP confirmed its intention to buy Luxco in a deal worth US$475m. Luxco is best known for its Kentucky Bourbons including Ezra Brooks and Rebel Yell but also owns a distillery in Jalisco, Mexico, which produces the El Mayor Tequila.

MGP specialises in producing base spirit for a number of third-party spirits brands in the US. The company said the Luxco acquisition signals a move into higher value-added products.
