SPI says Hot and Sticki were created for the 50th anniversary of Stolichnaya flavours and are based on Stoli’s first Pepper and Honey & Herb flavours introduced in 1962.
Stoli Hot is described as having the fiery sensation of jalapeño peppers; spicy on the palate, yet with a delicate smoky quality, making it ideal for Bloody Marys or drinks with a kick.
Stoli Sticki is said to be inspired by the candied taste of honey and incorporates floral notes to complement its sweetness: an appropriate vodka for a Sticki Moscow Mule.
Following the availability in travel retail of Stoli Premium vodka, Stoli Chocolat Razberi and elit by Stolichnaya; Stoli Hot and Stoli Sticki will launch in Rio De Janeiro and San Paulo airports with an introductory offer of two 1L bottles for US$35 instead of $40. There will be tasting bars for sampling.
