Pick of the Week: Premium Vodka
What We Like: Tigre Blanc Vodka
Why We Like It: Well to be fair, most vodka drinkers have to resort to Absolut, Belvedere and Grey Goose to put a fine spin on their drinks and cocktails, so it was certainly nice to know that a new player had their foot in the door in the vodka segment.
Just released in the Indian market is French super premium vodka Tigre Blanc, a luxury liquor brand handled by once president of LVMH’s North American market, Renaud Dutreil.
Slotted as pure vodka that celebrates French tradition and ‘art de vivre’, the liquor is distilled in Cognac—an area that’s primarily popular for exquisite champagne.
Apart from the fact that you can now indulge in an alternate, super smooth vodka, Tigre Blanc’s India foray signals a lot of glamorous events that will be backed by the liquor brand, and after the smashing success the host had with Tarun Tahiliani’s LFW after party at Tote on the Turf, Mumbai, we’re more than excited to have our names on Tigre Blanc’s permanent guestlist.
As vodka also forms the base of most cocktails, it would interest you to know that the brand’s host website let’s you in on some fantastic cocktail recipes, courtesy celebrity mixologist Ulric Nijs.
