Scandinavia's second most popular liqueur brand, Xanté, plans to make its debut into the US domestic market next February.

Miami-based importer Kindred Spirits will price the Cognac-based pear liqueur at about US$40 per bottle, initially targeting New York and Miami before a wider roll out. Xanté now features a taller, more contemporary bottle, which has been redesigned by British design agency, Claessens International.

"We will be focusing on top bars and restaurants," said Xanté CEO Adele Nilsson. "We think bartenders will find the brand very versatile as it can be served neat, on the rocks or as part of a cocktail. In Scandinavia, men tend to drink it like a Cognac in a balloon glass."

Launched in 1992, Xanté is produced in Belgium, but the company's headquarters are in Stockholm. The brand sold 2m bottles last year and was exported to 17 countries worldwide.
