Great taste is the essence of a life well-lived and this summer, the world’s best tasting vodka, Grey Goose, will introduce a limited-edition incarnation of its iconic bottle in the US for the first time in the brand’s history. Sporting a fresh new look timed to the 20th anniversary of the brand, the Grey Goose Limited-Edition Riviera Bottle celebrates the brand’s French heritage and a summer well lived.
The design features classic marinière stripes, popularized by the bathing beauties of the Nouvelle Vague. Defined by visible brush strokes reminiscent of France’s Impressionist Movement, the stripes give the bottle an appearance of spontaneity and vitality fit for the season. The bottle is completed with a neoprene cover featuring splashes of Grey Goose Blue, perfect for keeping the bottle cool during the balmy weather and for serving cocktails poolside.
The new bottle complements the Grey Goose signature summer cocktail, Le Grand Fizz, an elevated twist on the classic spritz. Made with only the finest, natural French ingredients, it can be customized for your taste profile without overcomplicating a beautiful serve. Le Grand Fizz features a revitalizing mix of St-Germain Elderflower Liqueur, fresh lime, soda water and vodka over ice. It is served in a wine glass to accentuate the fresh and vibrant nose of the cocktail. For those who are looking to make the cocktail at home, Grey Goose has put together a Le Grand Fizz cocktail kit complete with St-Germain, Grey Goose Vodka, acrylic glasses and cocktail stirs.
Le Grand Fizz has been named the signature summer cocktail at The Surf Lodge in Montauk, as well as Rooftop at the Jane and La Piscine at Hotel Americano in Manhattan. The cocktail has already gained popularity at Miami hotspots such as the Faena Hotel, SoHo Beach House and the Fontainebleau.
