Absolut Berri Açaí
launches its Berri Açaí today (April 4) in New Zealand.
   The new vodka blends açaí, blueberry and pomegranate creating what Absolut New Zealand’s mixologist, Chris Harrop, calls a ‘slightly juicy taste, and a smooth, crisp and berry finish.’
   Absolut introduced Absolut Citron in 1988. On the New Zealand market, Absolut now has a line of seven different flavours in addition to the original vodka.
   Absolut Berri Açaí features a transparent 700ml bottle with a deep-purple berry vine climbing around it. Retail price is NZ$37·99.
