Devotion Spirits, Inc., makers of a sugar-free, gluten-free and made in America flavored vodka family, has announced that Devotion Vodka is now available at more than 80 Publix Supermarkets throughout Florida and more than 200 Albertsons located across Nevada and California, complementing each respective grocery chain’s selection of premium wine & spirits.
As gluten-free products continue to be one of the strongest growth categories in the F&B industry, Devotion says it is a pioneer in the spirits marketplace, creating a gluten-free and sugar-free flavored vodka category, offering three crisp, exotic and refreshing fruit flavors: Black and Blue, Blood Orange and “The Perfect Cosmo.” Geared toward image-conscious men and women who live active lifestyles, the company’s new flavored vodkas is designed to appeal to those seeking a premium lower calorie alternative to traditional spirits.
Devotion Vodka teamed-up with Allen Flavors, maker of Arizona Iced Tea, the #1 Privately Owned Flavor Company, to develop a process of eliminating sugars as a flavoring agent in vodka. In lieu of sugar, Devotion uses an essence process along with natural flavor compounds to ensure its flavored vodkas are created without the unnecessary sugars that other mass produced vodkas use. Many flavored vodkas in the marketplace have been diluted by sugary flavoring agents, while all Devotion flavors maintain the 80 proof and quality throughout the flavoring process.
“Our consistent distribution growth in the restaurant marketplace, and now in the grocery industry, supports the growing trend that adult consumers are seeking gluten-free and sugar-free alternatives to meet their lifestyle and dietary needs in all food and beverage categories,” said Drew Adelman, President, Devotion Spirits, Inc.
Devotion’s flavored vodkas now available at Publix & Albertsons include Black and Blue, Blood Orange and “The Perfect Cosmo.”
Black and Blue, the first and only blackberry and blueberry flavored vodka combination in the industry, mixes the sweet, rich taste of Oregon blackberries with the crisp, zesty and mild bitterness of fresh California blueberries. The distinct mix of blackberries and blueberries delivers a unique berry profile that is extremely versatile for any cocktail, and a perfect match with sugar-free lemonade.
Featuring a delicious blend of juicy blood oranges, Devotion’s Blood Orange Vodka incorporates the distinct aromas of the Moro blood orange, combined with the sweetness and tenderness of the Tarocco and Sanguinelli blood oranges. The flavor is then topped off with the bold taste of the Kanhpur blood orange. The well-balanced Blood Orange Vodka features levels of sweetness, bitterness and citrus profiles for a smooth, flavorful finish, and perfect when mixed with a splash of cranberry juice and lime juice.
By blending Devotion Vodka’s Blood Orange with the premium ingredients of a Cosmopolitan, keeping consistent with the sugar-free and gluten-free platform, Devotion has created “The Perfect Cosmo.” Shoppers can add a splash of sugar-free cranberry juice to 2 ounces of “The Perfect Cosmo,” garnish with a lemon twist and enjoy a professionally-crafted, sugar-free Cosmopolitan at home.
In addition to Publix & Albertsons Supermarkets, Devotion Vodka (SRP of $19.99) is currently available for purchase at retail stores, restaurants and nightclubs in Florida, California, Nevada, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, New York, Arizona, Hawaii and Connecticut, with distribution continually expanding throughout the U.S. For more information and recipes, visitwww.devotionvodka.com
