Last night (Tuesday December 3), I attended a tasting of Balblair vintages. We tasted five whiskies, 2003, 1997, 1990, 1983 and 1969, prefaced by a glass of Balblair’s base spirit.
Wave Baja is described by Sazerac as a blend of “exotic tropical fruit”, while Wave Lemon Lime is said to have a “citrus taste”.
The new flavours join the brand’s current stable of original, whipped cream, pink lemonade, cherry, blue raspberry and grape variants.
The range is available in 5cl, 75cl, 1 litre and 1.75 litre sizes. The suggested retail price is $8.99 per 75cl bottle.
Tracey Clapp, brand manager of Wave Vodka, said: “Both consumers and bartenders look for new flavours, and we believe these two new additions will not only deliver on taste, but also lend themselves to some exceptionally creative and delicious drink recipes.”
Sazerac, a family owned business, has operations in New Orleans, Louisiana; Frankfort, Bardstown, Louisville and Owensboro, Kentucky; Fredericksburg, Virginia; Carson, California; Baltimore, Maryland; and Montreal, Canada.
