Stoli’s newest sensation, Gala Applik, has its competition seeing red

Stolichnaya, the No. 1 selling authentic Russian vodka, recently introduced the newest addition to its flavor portfolio, Stolichnaya Gala Applik. The new brand provides a fresh red apple taste with a hint of citrus that is sure to satisfy the palettes of discriminating consumers. The natural sweetness and fresh apple flavor become immediately apparent on first sip. The overall clean, bright and enticing smell is particularly alluring.

“Stoli Gala Applik complements our existing brand mix and reinforces our place as the pioneer in flavored vodkas,” said Andrey Skurikhin, Partner at SPI Group, Stolichnaya brand owner. “We believe that vodka enthusiasts will be eager to try this intriguing new flavor, the tenth in our innovative portfolio of flavors.”

Keeping true to Stoli’s unparalleled heritage and reputation for using only the highest quality of ingredients, Stoli Gala Applik is distilled from Russian grain and clear, natural water. Gala Applik offers a more subtle, interesting flavor profile than sour apple drinks. The aromatic essence of freshly picked Gala apples is added to quadruple filtered vodka to achieve its distinctive taste.

“We are very excited to introduce Gala Applik, the newest addition to Stoli’s innovative flavor portfolio,” said Lisa Pfenning, Category Director – Stolichnaya, William Grant & Sons USA. “We are very excited to bring this brand to life and share this enticing new flavor with Stoli fans – new and existing alike – across the country.”
