Putin on the style at the Russian Standard Vodka Citrus RTD Launch
The Russian Standard Vodka Citrus RTD launch was sooo ‘Russian’ that we half expected a leather jacketed Vladimir Putin to come a ‘russian’ in on his Harley Davidson at any moment.
Russian Standard Vodka launched in Australia a year ago this month at a very flash do at Opera Point in Sydney. To celebrate both their first birthday in Oz and to launch the new Russian Standard Vodka Citrus RTD company founder, Roustam Tariko, had snow fall on a Vodka filled spa at the Ivy’s Penthouse.
As VIP parties go in Sydney this one was up there. The Penthouse, overlooking the Ivy Pool was transformed into a stunning snow and ice scene by ‘Artistry’ and wow, it never looked better. The scene replicated a morphing between Moscow’s cosmopolitan nightlife, a New York style condo party and Sydney’s ever changing persona.
Irina Antonenko, Miss Russia 2010 and our own Jesinta Campbell, Miss Universe Australia 2010, were very glamorous additions to the event and both girls were a delight to chat with.
Daimon Downey, formally of Sneaky Sound System and a real ‘Mr Personality’, MC’d and performed with mate Nick Broadhurst on sax. The crowd warmer was by Flight Facilities, who performed their popular single ‘Crave You’, with Giselle on vocals.
Black Pearl Epicure caviar was eagerly ‘licked’, oysters gulped and a truly delicious range of Russian inspired and delectable treats disappeared from trays at lightening speed. Shots of Russian Standard Vodka hit the spots of many early and the cocktails were hard to resist. Excellent party.
