Queen have unveiled a premium Freddie Mercury celebratory vodka, 'Killer Queen', drink of choice for the legendary late frontman.
Released on the 40th anniversary of the multiplatinum single of the same name, Killer Queen – which featured on 1974 album Sheer Heart Attack – has been established by the band to honour Mercury's invaluable contribution to music.
RnR Brew has partnered with Bravado and the 'Original' Stoli spirits producer SPI / Latvijas Balzams in the EU, to produce Freddie Mercury's favourite tipple a "Legendary vodka" with Killer Queen vodka.
Killer Queen vodka is produced in batches from the highest quality GMO free unadulterated EU wheat. The vodka is "well versed in etiquette", seven times distilled using an ancient original vodka filtration process of quartz sand and birch charcoal. The water in Killer Queen vodka has been taken from a 600ft historical artisan well at source, and is "guaranteed to blow your mind, anytime."
On a recent visit to the Stoli vodka production plant in Riga, Latvia, Brian May described the factory as 'the Willy Wonka chocolate factory for adults. Reminiscing fond times with Mercury during his time in Queen upon the launch of Killer Queen vodka, guitarist Brian May says, "Freddie loved vodka and used to carry a dry ice cooler full of vodka with him on tour. Killer Queen Vodka is the perfect tribute to Freddie and using Killer Queen as the brand name was the perfect choice for us, and we know Freddie would have approved."
