This spring, the William Grant & Sons brand is celebrating 50 years in the flavored vodka category by introducing Stoli Hot and Stoli Sticki varieties. The company’s first commercially produced Stolichnaya flavored vodkas were Pepper as well as Honey and Herb. Stoli Hot is a jalapeño-flavored vodka that is spicy on the palate yet has a delicate smoky quality, the company says. By contrast, Stoli Sticki is a honey-flavored vodka with floral notes that complement the subtle sweetness of its flavor profile, it adds. The brand developed unique packaging for the new flavors with honeycomb imagery adorning the bottle neck and cap of Stoli Sticki, and flame images that blaze up the side of Stoli Hot’s bottle neck and cap. Both varieties will be available next month in 50-ml., 375-ml., 750-ml., 1-liter and 1.75-liter sizes. A 750-ml. bottle will retail for approximately $23.99.
