Diageo Reserve has announced the arrival of a new addition to its ultra-premium Cîroc vodka portfolio, Cîroc French Vanilla.
Inspired by the French style of making luxury vanilla ice-cream, the five-time distilled vodka has been masterfully infused with a blend of vanilla, delivering a rich and creamy taste. The liquid’s flavour profile, paired with Cîroc’s smooth signature flavour and texture creates a lively taste experience with tones of sweet vanilla and a distinctive aromatic background.
Made using the finest French grapes, the newest variant to Diageo Reserve’s portfolio of World Class brands has been introduced to engage with consumer interest in luxury and meet demand for ultra-premium flavoured vodkas. Cîroc French Vanilla will launch globally in October 2017 with a recommended hero serve, the Cîroc-Star Martini – tapping into the ever-growing popularity of the Porn Star Martini.
