Grey Goose introduces the summer martini in partnership with Harvey Nichols

This summer Grey Goose, the world’s best tasting vodka, in partnership with Harvey Nichols, is inviting guests to discover the world of summer martinis through a range of activities across the UK, including a Limited Edition summer martini cocktail and food pairing menu and a series of pop-up alfresco terraces in Harvey Nichols Knightsbridge, Manchester and Edinburgh.

The summer martini cocktail collection has been crafted using each of Grey Goose’s flavoured vodkas to create a highly aromatic, light and zesty menu to perfectly complement the warm summer evenings. Each of the cocktails is beautifully decorated with a floral garnish and will be served alongside a pairing menu of mini patisseries and tarts made from the same fruits as the vodkas.

Until Sunday 6 September, London’s Harvey Nichols Fifth Floor Terrace will be transformed into the Grey Goose Boulangerie François Terrasse, where guests will be transported to the shores of the Cote d’Azur, greeted by the understated elegant décor reminiscent of the French Riviera. Each week, Grey Goose Boulangerie François Terrasse will host martini masterclasses for discerning cocktail connoisseurs looking to recreate the martini experience at home.

The chic Terrasse will also pop up in Edinburgh over the same period, at the Harvey Nichols Fourth Floor Terrace, and in Manchester, on New Cathedral Street, from Friday 31 July to Thursday 6 August, serving the summer martini cocktail and food pairing menu at both.

In recognition of Grey Goose creator François Thibault’s decision to create ‘a luxury vodka with taste’ in a traditional Cognac region of France using the finest French ingredients, the Boulangerie François will feature an art installation display of Grey Goose artisan breads. The bread will be created using exactly the same ingredients that Grey Goose vodka is crafted from, soft winter Picardie wheat, using spring water naturally filtered through limestone from the Cognac region.
