Now that we’ve all made it through the first month of 2015 (hopefully without being buried alive in snow), it’s time to round up the latest and greatest alcohol launches of the year. We’re only a few weeks into 2015, but that doesn’t mean big brands are standing by. Companies haven’t spared a moment releasing new and noteworthy products, and we want to share with you our favorites (so far):
New to the award-winning line are Svedka Grapefruit Jalapeno—pairing sweet and tart with hot and spicy—and Svedka 100 Proof. While the Grapefruit Jalapeno flavor provides a bright, citrus taste with an intense juicy finish, Svedka’s 100 Proof has a pure and smooth taste coupled with a clean, warming finish. Both bottles will be available nationwide by early March, complete with new, innovative packaging.
In honor of celebrating 220 years of “turning ordinary nights into extraordinary ones” (we all know that’s true…), the tequila company released two limited edition Especial bottles. The gold and silver metallic bottles feature the brand’s new artwork, which intends to commemorate Jose Cuervo’s rich history as well as “the best of Mexico’s traditions.”
Adding two new flavors to their infusions line, Skyy Vodka recently released Texas Grapefruit and Pacific Blueberry. Made with natural ingredients, both new flavors are intense and very fruit-forward, capturing the true essence of each ingredient. While Skyy Texas Grapefruit provides fresh-picked, robust flavors, Pacific Blueberry contains the taste and smell of ripe blueberry (naturally). Either way, both bottles are packed with flavor and great for cocktailing.
Blue Moon White IPA
After searching through 150 varieties of hops for this brew, Blue Moon Brewing Company will finally debut its Blue Moon White IPA nationally on April 1st (this is not an April fools joke). With a rich golden color, hint of citrus and balanced bitterness, this crisp IPA is well worth the wait. Still, if you’re anxious to get your hands on the new brew, the company has been disclosing clues (as GPS coordinates) through their social sites that reveal secret locations in NYC, Chicago, LA, Austin and Nashville where beer lovers can enjoy a taste of the White IPA.
