When it comes to vodka, Grey Goose is at the top of many drinkers’ lists. The luxury French-made vodka is well known for being impossibly smooth and balanced, being as easily drunk by itself as it is in a cocktail. And as with all good things, Grey Goose is constantly looking to shake things up – literally and figuratively.
Grey Goose La Vanille last graced our cocktail shakers in 2003 and it’s not sticking around for long this time either. To celebrate the re-release of Grey Goose La Vanille, the deluxe vodka brand is heading to three of Melbourne’s top bars to whip up some very special cocktails.
Not familiar with Grey Goose La Vanille? We’re not surprised – this is a limited edition tipple created from Madagascan vanilla beans that lend the spirit a natural caramelised toffee flavour. Grey Goose add no sugar, just premium vodka made from soft winter wheat and spring water.
From November, head into Peaches and Galah in Melbourne, and 18th Amendment in Geelong to try Grey Goose La Vanille three different ways. These top shelf establishments will be shaking up drinks that are really kicked up a notch by the addition of a premium vanilla vodka. Head to Peaches for a special highball combining the La Vanille flavour with peach, or try the Living Legend at Galah, a delicious mix of the exclusive vodka with Kakadu plum chardonnay, lychee, passionfruit, grapefruit, lime, and rivermint. For an elevated glass of bubbles, try the 18th Royale from 18th Amendment, which will be topping Grey Goose La Vanille with sugar, fresh mint leaves and Brut Champagne.
Grey Goose La Vanille is exclusive and you can’t buy it retail. The spirit is only available in three of Victoria’s most influential cocktail bars and for a limited time only.
