Ready, set, sail. As the Official White Spirits Partner of the KPMG Australia Sail Grand Prix | Sydney and the Australia SailGP Team, SKYY Vodka, the only vodka enriched with the taste of Pacific Minerals, is launching a bespoke pop-up bar inspired by the ocean and sailing.
Set in the heart of Barangaroo at the SailGP Event Village, Watermans Cove – SKYY, SEA and SAIL visitors will be able to catch all the action of the event via a large screen while sipping on a SKYY Highball. As part of the pop-up, open from 18 – 19 February, guests can also experience a full cocktail menu and watch live SailGP athlete Q&As, a race boat ‘fly by’ parade and display of the Australia SailGP Team F50 race boat.
On the eve of the event, Friday 17 February, Sydney-siders and visitors can get their hands on a ticket to the exclusive launch party. Guests will be able to experience SKYY Vodka’s unique profile as the only vodka enriched with the taste of Pacific Minerals for a fresher vodka soda. Adding to the spectacle, renowned Australian host Scott Tweedie will be hosting a live Q&A with Australia SailGP Team driver Tom Slingsby.
Alex Wong, Head Chef of Lana, has also come on board for the official launch party and created a vodka and sea-inspired menu, aligning with SKYY Vodka’s history and flavour profile.
Alex Wong said, “Vodka and seafood are synonymous with elegant flavours and an enriching taste-palate experience. I’ve crafted a menu not only inspired by SKYY Vodka and the sea, but also to compliment the beverages on offer. The whole event will be an all-consuming experience which invites you to taste coastal freshness.”
Marketing Director at Campari Australia and New Zealand, Paolo Marinoni, said, “SailGP is the world’s most exciting racing on-water, so why not enjoy the spectacle right on the water-front as it happens? Gear up for a cracking day, all the while enjoying the premium ambience of the SKYY Vodka Bar and our bespoke drinks menu.”
The SailGP Event Village is free to access all weekend by the public. For visitors who want to catch the action early – they can get their hands on a launch party ticket at Eventbrite.
