TORONTO, May 15, 2017 /CNW/ - Just in time for National Caesar Day on May 18th, iconic Canadian vodka brand Polar Ice vodka is announcing a national partnership with French's™ Not Your Ordinary Caesar™ Original Cocktail Mix. Both products are proudly crafted and bottled in Canada – resulting in a truly Canadian Caesar cocktail!
The Caesar – a cocktail widely known for its sweet, savoury, sour and salty unique flavour – was invented in 1969 by a Canadian bartender. French's™ Caesar Original Cocktail Mix stays true to its Canadian roots by supporting local sources and local manufacturing. It is made with 100% Canadian tomatoes and free from glucose-fructose (high-fructose corn syrup) with no artificial flavours or colours.
"Polar Ice vodka and French's Caesar Original Cocktail Mix are both proudly produced, crafted, and bottled in Canada", says Kim Creighton, White Spirits Brand Manager, Corby Spirit and Wine. Polar Ice vodka is owned by Corby Spirit and Wine Ltd., and produced in Windsor, Ontario at the Hiram Walker & Sons distillery. "This is a truly Canadian partnership and an exciting way for consumers to celebrate National Caesar Day."
For a limited time across Canada, consumers will receive a free 1.89 L sample of French's™ Caesar Original Cocktail Mix along with the purchase of a bottle of Polar Ice vodka in select retail stores, while quantities last.
