Brown-Forman Finland today unveiled a new package design for FINLANDIA Vodka, a brand known for its pristine and smooth taste and innovative bottle design.

Conceived to capture the premium and dynamic essence of FINLANDIA Vodka, the design continues the brand’s half-century tradition of ice-inspired bottle designs – influenced by Finland’s global reputation for quality and pure natural environment.

“With this next evolution of ice, we added details, providing entry points into stories that give the brand meaning”- said Carmen D’Ascendis, senior vice president, global brand director, FINLANDIA Vodka.

The new bottle features premium elements, including a distinctive bottle shape with embossed imagery, an enhanced colour palette, and vibrant new branding.

The bottle’s distinctive ‘Flowing-Ice’ design allows the natural quality of the vodka to shine through while drawing inspiration from Finnish heritage, with the reindeer and Midnight Sun, embossed on the bottle’s shoulder. With a bold blue capsule, neck wrap and label, along with striking copper detail noting “Vodka from the Land of the Midnight Sun,” the new FINLANDIA Vodka bottle design stands out on the shelf and back bar.

With an enhanced wordmark font surrounded by rays of light emanating from the midnight sun graphic, each element collectively tells the rich story of FINLANDIA Vodka, Vodka from the Land of the Midnight Sun. The bottle evolution builds upon the founding principles of FINLANDIA Vodka – Luonto (Nature), Tislaus (Distillation), Muotoilu (Design).

Embodying the best of Finland, FINLANDIA Vodka is made from pure, glacial spring water and the finest Suomi barley, grown under the 72 days of Finland’s ‘Midnight Sun.’ State-of-the-art distillation transforms these untreated, natural ingredients into the smooth, crisp taste of FINLANDIA Vodka.

“Designed by Cartils Branding & Packaging Design, the new FINLANDIA Vodka packaging is a beautiful next step in the evolution of our award-winning design work, that reflects the premium vodka within” - said Carmen D’Ascendis, senior vice president, global brand director, FINLANDIA Vodka

The new FINLANDIA Vodka bottle will be available for wholesale and retail purchase starting early summer 2018. Poland, Finland and Czech Republic will receive new packaging starting June 2018. Select countries in Europe will begin receiving the new packaging in December 2018. The U.S., Russia and other markets will begin receiving the bottle in June 2019.

TORONTO, April 16, 2018 /CNW/ - While the annual Festival International de Jazz de Montreal usually surprises and delights its audiences with trumpets and trombones (and many other auditory wonders), Hendrick's Gin plans to whimsically "elevate" this year's experience with a mystical symphony of wonder, coming straight from the sky.

For the first time in over 39 years of Jazz Festival history, Hendrick's Gin merges music with spectacle, jazz with gin and a glorious hot air balloon (oddly decorated with cucumbers and roses) on a maiden Montreal flight at 44 ¼ cucumbers elevation (the equivalent of 44.25 feet).

Famously called the Hendrick's E.L.E.V.A.T.U.M. (Elevating, Levitating, Exceptionally, Voluminous, Amazingly, Towering, Uplifting, Mobile), the 65ft tall balloon will be stationed in the Quartier des Spectacles in Montreal for the opening two days of the world famous Festival International de Jazz de Montreal.  Festival guests bearing the enchanting golden tickets will have access to the special Hendrick's Gin Air Departure Lounge complete with music, entertainment, Hendrick's gin sampling and the rare opportunity to fly on one of the special E.L.E.V.A.T.U.M. flights.

"Hendrick's is a gin that cultivates the unusual," comments Beth-Anne Perry, Senior National Brand Manager, Hendrick's Gin. "Bringing E.L.E.V.A.T.U.M. to the largest global jazz festival allows us to create a symphony of music, art and the unusual, and share the whimsical world of Hendrick's with jazz fans from across the globe."

Bearing a basket perfectly suited for four, the E.L.E.V.A.T.U.M. will soar high above the festival, giving Hendrick's voyagers a view often reserved for our feathered friends.  For those with their feet planted firmly on the ground in the air departure lounge, the world's smallest Hendrick's teacup gin and tonics will be served, garnished with miniature cucumbers, while guests witness the wonderment through a 45-foot glass wall suited for spectacle viewing.  Renowned Intuitive specialist Terri-Lynn Decker will also give golden ticket holders special energy readings, adding to the whimsical wonderment of the Hendrick's Gin E.L.E.V.A.T.U.M. experience.

"A Hendrick's Gin soiree is always a spectacle of the unusual," adds Alvin Ramchurn, National Brand Ambassador, Hendrick's Gin. "We pride ourselves on being purveyors of the peculiar and E.L.E.V.A.T.U.M. shall be no exception.  We look forward to bewildering our lovely guests!"

The Hendrick's E.L.E.V.A.T.U.M. will be tethered at the Quartier des Spectacles during the 2018 Festival International de Jazz de Montreal on Thursday, June 28 and Friday, June 29, 2018.  Flights will take place in the evenings from 6:00 p.m. to midnight (based on wind patterns) and all guests bearing a golden ticket will have the opportunity to ride.

Coveted Hendrick's golden tickets for the E.L.E.V.A.T.U.M. will be available to the public via a series of special contests to be announced over the coming weeks, to elicit excitement and wonderment for the maiden Montreal flight.  The online portion of the Golden Ticket contest opens online to the public for residents of Quebec on June 7th at www.hendricksgin.com/balloon.
