New Amsterdam® Spirits Introduces Two Fruit Flavored Additions to its Portfolio New Amsterdam Continues to Grow with the Launch of Citron and Coconut Flavored Vodkas

MODESTO, Calif., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- New Amsterdam Spirits is proud to announce the newest additions to its portfolio, New Amsterdam Citron and Coconut Flavored Vodkas. Like its existing flavored vodkas, both New Amsterdam Citron and Coconut are five times distilled for unparalleled smoothness and are made from the finest quality grains and fruit flavors.

"With the success of New Amsterdam Peach and Red Berry Flavored Vodkas, as well as the entire New Amsterdam family, the time was right to introduce two additional flavored vodkas to the market," said Gerard Thoukis, Senior Director of Marketing at New Amsterdam Spirits. "New Amsterdam Citron and Coconut are distinctive, yet approachable in their flavor profiles, and we anticipate them being popular additions to the portfolio."

New Amsterdam Master Distiller Andrew Curtis describes New Amsterdam Citron Flavored Vodka as having "a refreshing lemon zest aroma with flavors of freshly cut Meyer lemon that finish crisp and clean on the tongue." In contrast, Curtis describes New Amsterdam Coconut Flavored Vodka as starting "with flavors of creamy, sweet coconut and tropical fruit leading to a soft and mellow finish." Both premium vodkas that are so smooth they can be enjoyed straight or on the rocks, yet versatile enough to be easily mixed in a variety of cocktails.

New Amsterdam Citron and Coconut Flavored Vodkas are available nationally for a suggested retail price of $14.99/750mL. Both flavors will be sold alongside New Amsterdam Gin, New Amsterdam Vodka, New Amsterdam Red Berry Flavored Vodka and New Amsterdam Peach Flavored Vodka.
