Goose flies in to boost charity


GREY Goose vodka has marked the sixth anniversary of its partnership with the Elton John AIDS Foundation with the release of four new cocktails.

The drinks were developed in collaboration with a number of creative partners, including acclaimed restaurant El Bulli, fashion designer Christian Louboutin and artists Marc Quinn and Jonathan Saunders.
The four cocktails – El Bulli Martini, Red Carpet, L’Oeil de la Poire and The Blue Print – were served at the recent Grey Goose Winter Ball.
The El Bulli Martini will also be available from mid-November at three of Gordon Ramsay’s restaurants, where they will also raise money for the foundation.
“Every year we invite those involved in our annual Grey Goose Winter Ball, in aid of the Elton John AIDS Foundation, to create a cocktail for the event,” said Mark Holdsworth, marketing controller for Grey Goose, part of the Bacardi Brown-Forman stable.
“This year’s cocktail selection demonstrates molecular know-how and unparalleled attention to detail, exquisite French craftsmanship, a provocative play with the senses, and lastly the ability to marry bold design with sophisticated flavours, mirroring all that Grey Goose stands for.”
