Produced from fine French grapes and distilled five times to ensure quality, Cîroc is the fastest-growing super premium vodka in the UK, helped by growing consumer demand for luxury flavoured vodkas – which account for 57% of that growth. And now, there’s a sixth flavour in the family – Cîroc Apple – aiming to provide a fresh take on this well- known fruit, by turning it into a sophisticated, fresh and highly mixable drink experience. 37.5% ABV, it can be served by itself, shaken with ice, or with readily available mixers such as fruit juices, soda and ginger ale.
