SVEDKA Grapefruit Jalapeño is leading the “sweet/heat” charge in the beverage industry by pairing sweet and tart, with hot and spicy. The proprietary grapefruit and jalapeño-flavored vodka begins with a bright, citrus entry, building to a smooth hint of heat, and intensifying with a tart, juicy finish and jalapeño bite.
SVEDKA 100 Proof is a grain neutral spirit formulation with a smooth, clean taste and a crisp, arid sensation that intensifies to the end with a deep, warm finish.
SVEDKA Grapefruit Jalapeño and 100 Proof are the latest additions to be introduced stateside by the Swedish-imported vodka brand, which also boasts a range of flavors including: SVEDKA Strawberry Lemonade, SVEDKA Mango Pineapple, SVEDKA Strawberry Colada, SVEDKA Colada, SVEDKA Orange Cream Pop, and SVEDKA’s core flavors – Cherry, Citron, Clementine, Raspberry, Vanilla and Peach.
