Phillips Distilling Company Introduces UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka

Phillips Distilling Company introduces a sweet addition to its wildly popular line of colorful flavored vodkas- UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka.

UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka is the only sweet tea vodka blended with natural green teas. Steeped in the rich coast-to-coast tradition of sweet teas, UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka is the sophisticated sweet tea choice for cocktail enthusiasts.

Not your typical sunporch tea, UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka is infused with a distinctive green tea flavor. This sweet green tea flavored vodka blends the Zen-like qualities of green teas with a modern sweet tea twist.

“Other sweet tea vodkas available in the market use black tea leaves in their recipes, which is not how sweet teas were traditionally made,” said Dean Phillips, president and CEO of Phillips Distilling Company. “This is not your grandmother’s sweet tea. We saw an extraordinary opportunity to introduce the market to an original sweet green tea vodka. From chilaxing at the lawn party to cocktailing at the posh lounge, UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka is a hot new refresher.”

Beautiful inside and out, UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka is infused with green tea leaves sourced from global locations. Capturing the taste, aroma, and colors of these natural ingredients, UV exudes a hint of citrus and tropical fruits. Such flavors yield a divine, honey-green vodka presented in UV Vodka’s award-winning bottle design. Like all UV Vodkas, UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka is distilled four times and carbon filtered to assure purity and the perfect pH balance.

Newly introduced this summer, UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka is already gaining industry prestige. UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka was recently awarded the Distinguished Platinum Medal by the Spirits International Prestige Awards in San Diego.

“With the addition of UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka to our UV Vodka line, this timeless beverage will quickly become an essential item in everyone’s well-stocked bar,” said Phillips. “UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka has the ability to be mixed and served in both traditional and fresh ways, encouraging our customers to create their own perfect sweet green tea cocktail. UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka is part of the new repertoire in the art of mixology.”

Light, crisp and naturally sweet, UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka revitalizes the way traditional sweet teas are served. The fresh brewed taste of green tea adds a refreshing take to this classic sweet tea flavor. Try recipes such as the ‘UV High Tea,’ mixed with one part UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka with two parts lemonade over ice, and the ‘UV Green Water,’ one part UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka with two parts water over ice. All recipes lend to a sweet and fragrant creation; the smooth taste of green tea lingers on every savvy palette.

UV Sweet Green Tea Vodka is the 12th variety of flavored vodka within the popular UV Vodka brand. Other flavors include coconut, cherry, blue raspberry, vanilla, grape, apple, citruv, orange and lemonade.
