NEW YORK, February 1, 2024 -- Today, the Makers of CÎROC Ultra-Premium Vodka proudly announce the launch of CÎROC Limonata, the luxury vodka brand's newest flavor innovation and a permanent addition to its ever-expanding portfolio. Inspired by the vibrant essence of the Mediterranean, this quality crafted vodka is infused with tangy citrus and Italian lemon flavors that encourage consumers to step into vacation mode—anytime, anywhere. Its exquisite taste profile was heavily influenced by the timeless allure of Capri’s citrus groves, Mediterranean climate and sophisticated ambiance.
True to its name, CÎROC Limonata features strong, lemon-forward tasting accents that perfectly balance sweetness with a recognizable zest. The harmonious blend of bold, sun-ripened lemon flavors instantly calls to mind the citrus groves that blanket the Italian coast, evoking the sun-drenched landscapes of the Mediterranean, Southern Italy and Capri.
“Whenever we step into vacation mode, we become our boldest, most flavorful selves,” said James Valdes, CÎROC Brand Director. “Think of CÎROC Limonata as a passport of sorts—your official invitation to Escape With Flavor and embrace a Mediterranean lifestyle, no matter where you are. The world of CÎROC Limonata evokes the perfect Italian summer, encouraging new experiences and adventures—no matter what time of year or where you happen to be enjoying yourself.”
This year marks an exciting new chapter for CÎROC as the brand ushers in a new era, with the launch of the latest permanent flavor and exciting partnerships that continue to solidify CÎROC’s long standing affiliation in music, community and culture. This launch serves as yet another example of its longstanding commitment to bring unexpected, unparalleled flavor innovations to the spirits industry.
The launch features a 360 rollout starting with a first taste during music’s biggest week this week in Los Angeles, exclusive experiences and festivals across cities like New York and Miami and more. Stay tuned on more details for you to Escape with Flavor with CÎROC Limonata in a city near you.
