Viniq

E. & J. Gallo has announced the latest addition to its expanding spirit portfolio: Viniq, a shimmery liqueur. Viniq is a fusion of premium vodka, Moscato and natural fruit flavor. When shaken, Viniq shimmers. The shimmer is the same ingredient that gives frosting its shine or rock candy its sparkle.

Viniq was initially tested in seven markets and became a staple at nightspots in Los Angeles and Atlanta. On the shoulders of this successful test, Gallo decided to expand nationally. Viniq is now sold coast to coast and is available in 750mL bottles for a suggested retail price of $19.99 and 375mL bottles for a suggested retail price of $12.99.

Viniq shimmery liqueur is best served straight on the rocks, or with favorite cocktail mixers.
