Absolut Watermelon is made with natural ingredients and contains no added sugar. The new variant is being rolled out this month in the country’s off-premise channel.

“We’re really excited to add a fresh new flavour to the mix with Absolut Watermelon, a refreshing fruit flavour that is synonymous with summer,” said Absolut’s assistant brand manager, Anika Sharma.

Absolut’s Canadian presence sits within the remit of beverage distributor and producer, Corby Spirit & Wine, which has handled Pernod’s portfolio in the country for 15 years. In September, the companies agreed terms to extend their relationship until 2026.
