Ursus vodka’s attention-grabbing liquid, quirky polar bear logo and colour-changing label makes for a vodka with tons of personality and just the right dose of light-hearted fun at an affordable price.”

The products will be available in the US off-trade at $10.99 per 750ml bottle. The original is 40% and the flavoured vodkas are 30%abv.
