NAPA, Calif., Oct. 22 /PRNewswire/ -- Foster's Wine Estates announced
its newest product for U.S. shelves -- Boomerang Vodka, the first 100
percent grape-based vodka imported from Australia.
Boomerang Vodka, the first imported from Australia, is sourced from 100
percent premium Chardonnay grapes from the Barossa Valley, instead of the
standard grain or corn-based vodkas. It is five times distilled, charcoal
filtered and bottled close to its source in South Australia, producing a
smooth, well-balanced and supple mouthfeel. It is approachable and easy to
drink -- perfect served neat or in a mixed vodka cocktail.
Boomerang Vodka is made by Chris Williams, an Aussie winery owner who
also has a love and discerning palate for high-end vodka. This passion is
what started Chris on the mission to produce premium imported grape vodka
without the premium price. In a market crowded with pricey imported vodkas,
Boomerang Vodka is a spirit that over-delivers in flavor and quality. The
Suggested Retail Price for the 750 ml bottle is just $19.99. Boomerang
Vodka is also available in 1 L and 1.75 L bottles priced at $25.99 and
Boomerang Vodka, which is being marketed and distributed through
Foster's Wine Estates in a joint venture with Chris Williams, also owner of
Wattle Creek Winery in Sonoma, CA, will be available nationwide beginning
in late October.
"Boomerang Vodka is made in Australia and because we're such a
high-profile Aussie beverage company, Chris Williams came to us with the
opportunity to sell it in the United States," said Scott Weiss, Managing
Director of Foster's Americas. "We think it makes sense for us as a unique
part of our innovation focus because we'll be able to leverage one of our
greatest strengths -- marketing the Australian personality -- without
competing with our existing wine brands."
"We are thrilled to introduce this premium-vodka to the U.S. because we
believe that American vodka lovers are going to immediately fall for this
fun, easy going, and incredibly delicious Aussie vodka," said Michal
Murphy, Boomerang Vodka Marketing Manager. "Americans also know a great
value when they see one and Boomerang Vodka is one of the best imported
vodkas on the market today for the price."
