This summer, Grey Goose will celebrate the French Riviera with the newest iteration of the brand’s annual Riviera bottle series.
Designed by illustrator and native son Quentin Monge, the limited-edition bottle captures the laissez-faire attitude of the Riviera and pays homage to the brand’s French heritage, the company says.
The Grey Goose by Quentin Monge bottle (suggested retail price: $40) reflects Monge’s “stylishly whimsical” take on his home region, the birthplace of many artists, including Henri Matisse, Marc Chagall and Andre Derain.
Imbued with a sense of place, the Grey Goose by Quentin Monge bottle features blue and white parasols, “evoking the casual glamour of the storied coastline.” Monge drew inspiration from the design while relaxing in Saint Tropez and looking upon the many parasols dotting the beach. Of this summer motif, Monge says: “The beach parasol is an essential when it comes to the summer holiday. I grew up on the beach and would always build huts under my parasol with everything I could find, from towels to floating wood.”
The Grey Goose by Quentin Monge bottle is accompanied by the Grey Goose signature summer cocktail Le Grand Fizz, a twist on the vodka soda. Le Grand Fizz features a mix of St-Germain elderflower liqueur, fresh lime, soda water and Grey Goose over ice. It is served in a wine glass to accentuate the nose of the cocktail.
