Springtime in New York will bring a wave of warmth as premium vodka brand Stolichnaya® celebrates its 50th anniversary with a few new twists on old favorites. For half a century the brand has been creating high end liquor with unique flavors, and the company’s dedication to quality and crisp taste has consistently set Stolichnaya® ahead of the pack. To help commemorate the brand’s anniversary, Stolichnaya is remixing a few of the very first flavors the company produced in 1962—Pertsovka, or Pepper, and Okhotnichya, Honey and Herb. The introduction of Stoli® Hot and Stoli® Sticki™ hopes to usher in the spring season with a harmonious balance of both candied sweetness and spicy heat.

CEO of SPI Group, Val Mendeleev, said, “The brand is thrilled to reintroduce pepper and honey flavored vodkas, Hot and Sticki™. These spirited and timeless remixes are the perfect complement to our existing premium flavored vodka portfolio. We hope our fans will enjoy these delicious and versatile offerings in a variety of mixed drinks.” Additionally, the brand’s ambassador, Charlotte Voisey, the British bartending legend who holds a string of international mixologist medals under her belt, is excited to represent the company’s remixed editions.

When asked about the new flavors, the talented queen of bartending said, "Stoli Hot & Sticki are fun and vibrant flavors that bring immediate character to a range of seasonal cocktails. I like to tame the green pepper heat of Stoli Hot with fresh fruits in long refreshing drinks - Strawberry & Pineapple Collins for example. With Stoli Sticki it is a nice chance to bring some sweet honey notes to an elegant classic."

Voisey was most recently honored at the 2012 James Beard Awards for her contributions as one of the world’s leading female mixologists.
