Queen unveil celebratory vodka
Queen have unveiled a celebratory vodka, ‘Killer Queen’.
RnR Brew has partnered with Bravado and the ‘Original’ Stoli spirits producer SPI / Latvijas Balzams in the EU, to produce Freddie Mercury’s favourite tipple.
From the press release:
"Killer Queen vodka is produced in batches from the highest quality GMO free unadulterated EU wheat. The vodka is “well versed in etiquette”, seven times distilled using an ancient original vodka filtration process of quartz sand and birch charcoal with a unique filtration process at the final stage. The water in Killer Queen vodka has been taken from a 600ft historical artisan well at source, which gives Killer Queen vodka its exquisite smooth original taste and is “guaranteed to blow your mind, anytime.”
On a recent visit to the Stoli vodka production plant in Riga, Latvia, Brian May described the factory as ‘the Willy Wonka chocolate factory for adults. Reminiscing fond times with Mercury during his time in Queen upon the launch of Killer Queen vodka, guitarist Brian May says, “Freddie loved vodka and used to carry a dry ice cooler full of vodka with him on tour. Killer Queen Vodka is the perfect tribute to Freddie and using Killer Queen as the brand name was the perfect choice for us, and we know Freddie would have approved.”'
Killer Queen vodka is 40% ABV (80 proof) and available in measurements of 700ml and 750ml. It will launch in UK on September 17th and will retail at approx. £25 (incl. VAT), with International markets following later in 2014.
Queen Fans and vodka lovers can order first production run KQ premium vodka in painted glass bottles (ideal for gifting) directly from here. It will be available at selected ASDA’s from Q1, 2015.
