Grey Goose is labelled as the world’s best tasting vodka and this summer it’s bringing an innovative campaign to London, aimed at helping cocktails lovers to select a drink that is perfectly to their taste.
Every person has a unique taste profile, with a different reaction to each of the five elements of taste: sweet, sour, salty, bitter and umami. In the same way that coffee drinkers know whether they like their latte ‘extra hot’, ‘skinny’ or ‘triple shot’, Grey Goose aims to give cocktail drinkers just the right vocabulary and understanding they need to be able to discover a cocktail that is just right for them.
Running from May until July, Taste By Appointment will introduce two tools designed to educate cocktail lovers about how to ensure the best possible drinking expereince.
Throughout early summer Grey Goose UK Brand Ambassador, Joe McCanta is hosting a series of fascinating consumer events at some of the finest locations across the country. At each event, guests will be welcomed with a Grey Goose Le Fizz reception and a selection of delicious canapes, before being guided through a series of exciting and surprising taste experiments. With Joe’s expert assistance, each guest will learn how to identify their own personal taste and create bespoke cocktails to match, before enjoying a personal taste consultaiton, during which they will have a cocktail contructed that is perfectly suited to them at that moment. Every guest will leave with a fuller understanding of how to order a cocktail that they can feel confident they will enjoy.
