FRÏS (pronounced "FREES") is a vodka brand owned by The Sazerac Company.


FRÏS vodka was launched in the US in 1989 by Danish Distillers and Hiram Walker Distillers (Canada/US). Danish Distillers was sold in 1999 to V&S Group, which was then acquired by Pernod Ricard Group in 2008. In 2016, The Sazerac Company acquired FRIS from Pernod Ricard.[1]

Freeze distillation[edit]

The name “Frïs” links the Swedish word for "freezing" and the Danish word for "ice." The name refers both to Scandinavia and to its patented process of freeze filtration.[2]

FRÏS Vodka is distilled four times and undergoes a freeze filtration process which removes impurities. Once distilled, the spirit is then blended with water that has been naturally filtered. This creates a clean, crisp taste.

FRÏS Vodka is 40% alcohol per volume (80 proof).[3]
