The exclusively branded bottles of tipple are all set to go on sale in the UK from September 17, 2014. The band will collaborate this venture with Latvian vodka producer Stoli Vodka.
Guitarist Bryan May expressed his excitement over the new branded spirit and said that it was a fitting tribute to the late Freddie who loved vodka, “vodka and used to carry a dry ice cooler full of vodka with him on tour. Killer Queen Vodka is the perfect tribute,” said May.
The limited edition of Vodka will be produced in Stoli’s production unit in Riga, Latvia, which May described as “the Willy Wonka chocolate factory for adults.”
