This is pretty interesting. I didn’t realize that there were so many flavors. It’s kind of insance, really. I’m a beer and wine guy, but if I have a drink, it’s typically a gin and tonic. I really have only had lemon vodka or non-flavored.
After a year that saw its Pinnacle vodka reach new heights on the back of its skyrocketing Whipped flavor extension, White Rock Distilleries is giving Pinnacle a boost with its first TV ads this year.
The campaign has a budget of $7 million. Beginning in February, the new spots will target 21-to-35-year-old females on cable networks including Bravo, Oxygen, E!, InStyle and others.
Pinnacle Whipped became the top-selling flavored vodka in the U.S. in 2011, selling 750,000 cases in its first full year on the market (adding in offshoots Cherry Whipped, Chocolate Whipped, Key Lime Whipped and Orange Whipped, the line sold roughly 1 million cases). As a brand, Pinnacle nearly doubled to 2.7 million cases in 2011, according to Impact Databank. White Rock CEO Paul Coulombe told Shanken News Daily he “expects growth of at least 50%” for Pinnacle in 2012.
