SKYY Vodka, the American-made vodka steeped with the innovative and progressive spirit of California, is expanding its popular Infusions line, adding two new flavors to its portfolio: SKYY Infusions Honeycrisp Apple and SKYY Infusions Tropical Mango. The award-winning lineup of innovative vodkas continues its focus on “true-to-fruit” flavors, providing consumers with an authentic premium product made from natural ingredients for the ultimate cocktail experience.
SKYY’s progressive spirit means selecting only the finest natural ingredients to capture the essence of each fruit flavor. With apple remaining one of the top trending flavors in the US throughout food and beverage, SKYY looked to the juicy Honeycrisp, an apple variety with a cult-like following, to create a delicious vodka with a crisp and balanced sweet-tart flavor — making it the first vodka of its kind on the market. SKYY Infusions Honeycrisp Apple mixes well with ginger beer for famed bartender and Global SKYY Ambassador Otis Florence’s signature “Ginger Crisp” cocktail.
Mango, popular around the world, is a flavor trend that is on fire here in the US. For cocktail lovers caught up in mango-madness, SKYY Infusions Tropical Mango offers sweet, ripe, tropical fruit aromas and distinctive mango taste for a long, smooth finish. Combine with limeade made from freshly squeezed limes for a “Mango Zinger,” an easy and ideal cocktail for summer.

Following a year of unprecedented growth, New Amsterdam Spirits announces the national launch of the latest addition to its premium portfolio, New Amsterdam Mango Flavored Vodka. This vodka is made with fruit flavors and 100% American grain, and like New Amsterdam Vodka and the brand’s other flavored offerings, offers unparalleled smoothness as a result of its five times distillation and triple-filtered process.
New Amsterdam Master Distiller David Warter compares New Amsterdam Mango Flavored Vodka to biting into a fresh, juicy Alphonso Mango. “This new flavored vodka is layered with tropical fruit aromas of papaya and passion fruit, with a finish that is crisp and refreshing,” details Warter, “Similar to all other flavored vodkas in the New Amsterdam portfolio, this offering is smooth enough to enjoy straight or on the rocks, but also makes for a versatile ingredient that can be used in a myriad of different cocktails.”
New Amsterdam Mango Flavored Vodka is available nationally for a suggested retail price of $14.99/750mL, and is sold alongside New Amsterdam Gin, New Amsterdam Vodka, and New Amsterdam Red Berry, Peach, Citron, Coconut, Pineapple and Orange Flavored Vodkas.
