Moscato Grape


By Robert Plotkin

The popularity of Moscato wine is exploding in the US. According to A. C. Nielsen, Moscato wines comprise the fastest growing wine category in America, recently jumping to the third most-popular white wine varietal in the industry. Collectively their sales grew 73 percent in 2012, the largest gain of any grape varietal. SKYY Infusions Moscato Grape is the first infused vodka to combine the number-one flavor in the wine category with the number-one spirit in the beverage alcohol industry. Progress never tasted so marvelous.

Introduced in 2013, SKYY Infusions Moscato Grape is crafted using natural ingredients and a proprietary process that infuses Moscato grapes into SKYY premium vodka. Through this process, the vodka becomes saturated with the sun-drenched aroma and flavor of the grapes. The infusion is then filtered to impeccable clarity and bottled at 70 proof to ensure there's no biting edge or alcohol burn. Its lower alcohol content also allows the vodka to luxuriate on the palate for an agreeably long time.

Simply put, SKYY Infusions Moscato Grape is a singularly delicious spirit. The crystal clear vodka has an oily, velvety textured body and a fresh fruit bouquet reminiscent of the namesake wine. Guaranteed you're not going to find another vodka with aromatics as intriguing as this. Its gentle entry quickly fills the mouth with spicy, semi-tart, grape flavors. The long finish is lush and spicy.

"SKYY's newest Infusion provides Millennial consumers a better way to create a sophisticated Moscato cocktail," said Jason Daniel, Brand Director, SKYY Vodka. "Always pushing the envelope with trends and innovation, SKYY Vodka is the first to infuse the Moscato grape directly into premium vodka, combining the two nightlife favorites and providing cocktail enthusiasts with an easy, delectable cocktail experience."

SKYY Infusions Moscato Grape joins the brand's existing line of premium flavors, which includes Wild Strawberry, Coconut, Dragon Fruit, Blood Orange, Pineapple, Ginger, Cherry, Grape, Citrus, Raspberry and Passion Fruit.
