After some early controversy, lately Diddy has been fulfilling his duties as official spokesperson for Ciroc Vodka and has been more and more involved in the overall marketing efforts. From his mini-movie, to his boastful PR stunts Diddy has been everywhere pushing Ciroc. And now, he has officially made his mark on the Ciroc website by completley redesigning it “Diddy style.”

The site now is heavily branded with Diddy’s images, ads and bio so it’s no mistake that this is HIS vodka. According to parent company Diageo’s 2008 financial reports, they have seen an 11% year over year growth in the U.S. vodka sector. A large amount of this is attributed to Ciroc. So while some where doubtful, the deal seems to be working. Let’s see how long it sustains in the new year though. Check out the revamped Ciroc site.

New York, NY, 12/23/08 (Hip Hop PR Wire) — CÎROC Ultra Premium Vodka, the Official Vodka of New Year’s Eve, and Sean “Diddy” Combs have made an unprecedented offer to the City of New York : the brand and the hip-hop mogul plan to donate $1 million to a charity on behalf of the city in exchange for a New Year’s Eve ball takeover.

The brand has already secured an enormous presence in Times Square this holiday season with its impressive billboards, but in true Diddy fashion, the plan doesn’t stop there. The vodka brand wants to change the historic crystal ball to reflect its iconic blue sphere. The color of the sphere originates from a unique plant that grows in the Gaillac region of France , where CÎROC is still produced, and serves as a symbol of prosperity for the area even today.

“As the ‘Official Vodka of New Year’s Eve,’ it’s only fitting that we take over New York, the most iconic New Year’s city in the world,” said Combs, who entered into a strategic marketing alliance with the ultra-premium spirit more than one year ago. “I’m going to give every adult in America a taste of what it’s like to enjoy a sophisticated celebration with Diddy, and what better time than while ringing in the New Year.” Continue reading
