Our Spirit of a Nation at the TV Week Logie Awards
Melbourne may not be the host city for the Annual TV Week Logie Awards this year, but its spirit will certainly be there in the form of Vantage Australia – official spirit of the Logies. Our Melbourne based spirit, featuring Australian native botanicals, has been chosen by the committee for the second year in a row. And, as the official spirit sponsor, Vantage will be sampled by over 500 of the best in the entertainment industry.
This year, the Vantage creator, Bill Hargitay, has promised to launch a new Gold Coast inspired cocktail for celebrity guests and here it is - the SPIRIT OF THE GOLD COAST (recipe below).
“I am thrilled that Vantage Australia has once again been selected as the official spirit for the 2018 TV week Logie awards. As Australia’s own spirit, it only seems too fitting for this year’s home-grown talent to celebrate their success with us,” Hargitay said.
Beautiful on the rocks and with tonic or soda, Vantage Australia has the ability to cut across traditional spirit genres, making it the perfect base for most cocktails giving life to old classics, with an Australian twist.
The Logies will be marking its 60th anniversary at The Star Gold Coast on Sunday, July 1st and it will be the first time the awards have been held on the Gold Coast - we think that's worth celebrating with a special cocktail.
