Made from Grapes!
That's not a typo. Boomerang Australian Vodka is made from grapes. While vodka has been around for centuries (either Russia or Poland is home to this spirit, depending on your definition of vodka itself), the best vodkas have been distilled from grains or potatoes. Until now, we haven't encountered such a high quality vodka made from grapes.
Boomerang Australian Vodka is crafted with 100% Chardonnay grapes grown in South Australia’s Barossa Valley. It's five times distilled and charcoal filtered, a process that serves to remove impurities from the finished vodka. And that finished vodka is impressive—very smooth and clean tasting, excellent neat, on the rocks, or in any number of mixed drinks.
If you can find it here in the States, Boomerang Australian Vodka tends to cost a pretty penny. At Trader Joe's, we made a great deal that's allowing us to offer this premium vodka for a mere $5.99* for each 750 ml bottle. Quality plus price equals Boomerang effect. Cheerio, mate!
