The Stolichnaya variants are set to be rolled out later this year

The SPI Group has confirmed plans to roll out two flavoured variants of its Stolichnaya vodka brand in India. 

Stoli Hot and Stoli Salted Karamel will be launched in the market before the end of the calendar year, according to global brand ambassador Meagan Sacher. 

“India is one of the most important markets for Stoli at the moment," Sacher told just-drinks. "We have seen significant growth in the market in the last few years."

She added: "Stoli Hot with pepper and strong jalapeno notes and Stoli Salted Karamel with a perfect balance of sweet and savoury notes are suitable for the palate profile of the Indian consumers."

Stolichnaya has been imported and marketed by Aspri Spirits in India since 2011. Stoli Premium and Stoli Elite are currently sold in the country. 

The two new variants were recently launched in China and are already available in Stoli’s biggest markets including the US, Canada, the Caribbean, and Australia.

An updated version of Stoli Hot was launched in the US in 2012.
