Last night we invited trade media to an event for our client GREY GOOSE, the leading super premium vodka. Held at the Fifth Floor Bar at Harvey Nichols, to preview the 2016 GREY GOOSE Film Awards Season Cocktail Collection. The cocktails have been inspired by some of this year’s most acclaimed movies and were created by GREY GOOSE master mixologist and global brand ambassador Joe McCanta, who also hosted the event. After a Le Fizz and canape reception, Joe took the guests through each of the seven cocktails, showing us how to mix them and why they were best matched to the movie.
Our favourite cocktail from the collection was the GREY GOOSE Le Rêve inspired by the movie ‘Escape’. Described as ‘a light and refreshing mix of GREY GOOSE La Poire, coconut and Thai basil. Designed to remind you of an island breeze’ – I could definitely imagine myself sipping one of these on a tropical beach!
Also on offer was the GREY GOOSE VX Martini Exceptionnelle cocktail, featuring the mixed spirit drink GREY GOOSE VX, a blend of GREY GOOSE vodka finished with a hint of cognac.
You can sample one (or more) of these delicious cocktails during the month of February, exclusively at the Fifth Floor Bar at Harvey Nichols. The full menu is listed below.
