TORONTO, May 4, 2017 /CNW/ - Corby Spirit and Wine Ltd. is pleased to announce that it will be introducing an exciting new product across Canada just in time for the summer: Absolut Lime. Made with natural ingredients, this vodka is fresh and fruity with a distinct note of freshly pressed lime, and can be used to take cocktails like the Lime Drop and the Lime Mule to the next level (recipes below). Absolut Lime is the newest addition to Absolut's flavoured vodka portfolio in four years, and will be available in Canadian stores starting in May.

"Absolut Lime has been coveted by consumers ever since its debut earlier this year in the USA, and we're thrilled to now introduce this fantastic product to the Canadian market," says Vanessa Clarke, Senior Brand Manager, Corby Spirit and Wine. "Our research indicates that consumers today are looking for more natural flavours, and Absolut Lime delivers using all natural ingredients and no added sugar. It's the perfect choice for classic vodka drinks with a refreshing twist."

"I've created many flavoured vodkas in my 30-year career, however, perfecting the complexity of lime has always been a challenge," says Per Hermansson, Absolut's Director of Sensory Design. "The blend we've crafted for Absolut Lime achieves everything we were looking for, offering a full bodied character that is both complex and refreshing, and like all Absolut flavours, made with natural ingredients with no added sugar."

The versatility of Absolut Lime works well as a key ingredient to any classic drink, making it perfect for every occasion. To experience the refreshing taste of Absolut Lime, try these easy-to-mix cocktail recipes:

STAMFORD, Conn., April 27, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- When Susannah Oland opened the Army and Navy Brewery in 1867, she hoped to create a business that could be passed down to her sons. Six generations later, her legacy – and the company eventually renamed as Moosehead Breweries – lives on. This year, the company is celebrating its 150th anniversary.


It hasn't always been an easy path for the brewery, which has endured two fires, Prohibition, the Halifax Explosion and two wars as it expanded across Canada, into the US and eventually, around the world. The brewery shares its anniversary with the country of Canada, which is celebrating its own 150th birthday this year.


"It's fitting that we share our anniversary with the country we call home," explains Andrew Oland, President, Moosehead Breweries. "Like Canada, we've faced challenges along our path, but – like Canada - we've risen to the challenge time and time again to not only endure, but thrive. And through it all, we've been able to remain fiercely independent and stay true to our own ideals."


To celebrate the anniversary, Moosehead will launch new 150th-themed bottle labels for Moosehead Lager and introduce Moosehead Radler in draft in the US. Several anniversary-themed consumer promotions are also planned.


Georgia Homsany, US Brand Director for Moosehead added, "We hear again and again from our customers and fans across the United States, who adore Moosehead for its authenticity, it's independence and, of course, its great beer."


Moosehead Lager won a Silver medal in the Lager category at this year's New York International Beer Competition. At last year's competition, Moosehead Radler won a gold medal and "Specialty Beer of the Year." Moosehead and Moosehead Radler are imported by United States Beverage and distributed nationally throughout the US.
