It's Absolut-ly Time for Lime

Hard is it may be to believe, Absolut’s extensive portfolio has never featured lime as one of its flavors. Absolut Citron and Mandrin can be found on just about every back bar out there, and along with those two iconic citrus-forward Absolut flavors, many bars carry Pears, Berry Acaí, Apeach and the other fruit flavors in the brand’s catalog.

Finally, however, Absolut Lime has arrived! Bearing in mind that lime and cocktails are a classic pairing, Absolut recognized that they needed to take their time to ensure they struck a balance between full-bodied citrus flavor and a refreshing, light finish.

Absolut Lime will also be the official spirits partner on music’s biggest night of the year: the 2017 GRAMMY Awards, which will be held on February 12.

Absolut Lime will be rolling out nationwide starting in January 2017. The MSRP is $19.99 for 750ml bottles and $24.99 for 1L bottles. Absolut Lime will also be available on www.reservebar.com.
