Skyy Orange is described as a medley of Brazilian and blood oranges, which are blended with the company's quadruple-distilled and triple-filtered vodka. The beverage has no preservatives or artificial ingredients, assures the company.
The orange flavor joins a growing line of flavored vodkas from the company. Skyy launched berry, spiced and vanilla versions last year and augmented the line with a melon variety in January. Skyy Melon is distilled and filtered similarly to its orange sibling, but the Melon version has an all-natural blend of honeydew, cantaloupe and watermelon flavors.
Skyy' s flavor-infused offerings join a crowd of vodkas with added taste. Smirnoff Twist Vodka from Diageo (Huntingwood, Australia) recently debuted in strawberry and watermelon, and Absolut Spirits' (New York) Danzka brand has added citrus, grapefruit, cranberry and raspberry to its lineup.
