Amber Beverage Group-owned Moskovskaya® Vodka, one of the oldest vodka brands in existence, will organize a virtual Global Academy called “The Hard Seltzer” that will take place on Thursday 25 March from 2pm to 3pm CET. Together with beverage industry enthusiasts, the brand will discover the booming Hard Selzer category, discuss the importance of this trend globally and review Moskovskaya’s latest portfolio additions for 2021.
The Moskovskaya team has invited international distributors, including both the sales and marketing teams, to join them for a presentation covering the Hard Seltzer category and trend. Topics that will be covered include the changing global drinking habits since the start of the pandemic, how the Hard Seltzer as an RTD and cocktail fits into this new way of socialising and the best drinking occasions to enjoy them in.
“We have all been following the big explosion of Hard Seltzer brands in the USA and today we believe that the trend has landed in Europe. That’s why Moskovskaya would love to share our learnings and insights after making our first SKUs of Hard Seltzers. With this Global Academy we will introduce the industry and our partners to the trend, the history, the flavours and the why behind Hard Seltzers,” commented Pepijn Janssens, the Chief Marketing Officer and Managing Director USA at Amber Beverage Group.
The presentation will also give insight into the unique direction that Moskovskaya has taken with their new range and deliver inspiration for mixing cocktails with these Hard Seltzers; bringing added flavour characteristics to classic highballs and aperitifs.
As announced earlier, Moskovskaya® Vodka has designed a new Moskovskaya Street hard seltzer inspired by the iconic Moscow Mule cocktail. Canned at 4.5% ABV, the new expressions are available in a slim 250 ml can for on-the-go convenience, delivering fresh taste notes of Ginger and Mint, combined with Moskovskaya Osobaya Vodka, and Raspberry and Lime taste notes, complimented by the innovative Moskovskaya Pink Vodka.
