When it comes to style, there are few drinks brands that do it like Grey Goose. In the lead up to the Australian summer the French vodka turned it on for 40+ bar professionals for the Grey Goose Getaway experience at “Bells” at Killcare boutique hotel property.
The team at Grey Goose, including global brand ambassador Joe McCanta, booked out the property exclusively and provided a setting inspired by the French home of Grey Goose, Le Logis combined with the charm of the Riviera. A “bonne vivant lifestyle, an ideal way to kick off the ultimate summer celebration with Grey Goose”.
McCanta made the trip out from London joining the guests and the Grey Goose local team to host a journey through the history and a tasting across six styles of vodka (with a few cocktails thrown in along the way).
McCanta commented: “Grey Goose is recognised around the globe as the essential ingredient for celebration: it’s the world’s best tasting vodka with no comparison when it comes to quality. For our valued industry partners, the Getaway was the perfect luxury experience to immerse guests into the brand and take time to appreciate a life well lived. It is great to be back in Australia ahead of summer and excite the trade about all our upcoming activity.”
Grey Goose has again released a limited-edition Riviera bottle, this time designed by modern French illustrator, Quentin Monge. The bottle design is a twist on the classic featuring the blue and white parasols famed for being dotted along the French Riviera. The limited-edition Riviera bottle is now available nationwide at major retailers until sold out.
