NEW YORK, April 27, 2011 - The world's most awarded ultra premium vodka, Purity Vodka,
announced today that it has recruited Andy Glaser from Moët Hennessy as its
new Chief Executive Officer. Mr. Glaser will be based in New York and has
extensive experience in successful brand development in the U.S. market
having led marketing for Heineken and most recently business operations at
Hennessy Cognac. Glaser will be responsible for developing the Purity brand
and increasing its distribution, initially in the US, and is expected to take
control over the brand's global operations within 12 months.

Purity Vodka comes to life in small batches at the 13th
century castle Ellinge, just north of Malmö in southern Sweden and is
marketed as an ultra premium vodka. Its geographical expansion has progressed
rapidly over the past 18 months and Purity Vodka is now available in more
than 20 markets, including China, Spain, Portugal, Switzerland, Germany,
France, Taiwan, Britain, Sweden, Georgia and Kazakhstan.

Purity Vodka is also available on the US market, in New York,
California, Nevada and Georgia where continued focus lies on developing sales
and marketing in top class on-premise venues. In New York, Purity Vodka is
sold at exclusive hotels and restaurants including The Mandarin Oriental, The
Peninsula, Le Cirque, Serafina, Benoit, and The Soho Grand, and The Four
Seasons Restaurant to name a few. Also, it is sold in well known venues
worldwide such as The Ritz in London, The Dry Martini in Barcelona and in The
M1NT Club in Shanghai.

"We are delighted that Andy has chosen to join Purity Vodka at
a very exciting time. It says a lot about its potential and our long term
commitment to our brand", says Göran Bernhoff, Chairman. "We are confident
that Andy will be able to make Purity Vodka an important player in the small,
but fast growing ultra premium vodka segment in the US, as well as in Europe
and Asia."

A duel US/British citizen, Glaser gained his Masters in
Marketing from the University of the West of England and served as an Officer
in the Royal Marine Commandos. Moving to the US in 1996, Glaser was
responsible at Heineken USA for leading the development and national launch
of Heineken Premium Light in 2006, the company's most successful
brand-extension. Since 2008, he has worked for Moët Hennessy, as Sr. Vice
President, overseeing all US marketing and business for Hennessy Cognac, the
company's flagship brand and the largest and most valuable Cognac brand in
the world.

'It is a great honor to now be entrusted to lead the world's
most awarded ultra premium vodka in the next critical phase of its growth.
Having had the privilege to lead several of the world's greatest brands, it
is very stimulating to now develop Purity Vodka to realize its full potential
in the vision of its creator Thomas Kuuttanen," says Andy Glaser. "Vodka
continues to enjoy very healthy growth but is undergoing transformation.
Small is beautiful again to post recessionary spirit consumers who are
increasingly seeking smaller hand crafted brands with a great story. The time
for a brand of exquisite quality such as Purity has never been better."

Andy Glaser will take over as Chief Executive Officer of US
operations on June 1, 2011.
