Vodka has been made from potatoes, grains and even corn — but in Australia’s Barossa Valley, they are using grapes. Grapes from this region are only the first step in the process of making this high-end libation, aptly named Boomerang Vodka. Fosters, the makers of the famous “Lager” and proprietors of Fosters wine estate, collaborated with Chris Williams of Wattle Creek Winery in the famed Sonoma Valley to bring a taste of uniqueness and of Aussie life to the people of the U.S.
The ultra-smooth, clean and elegant taste is achieved through using chardonnay grapes and distilling 5 times for purity. Filtering it near its source helps in the non-agressive mouthfeel and easy drinkability. Boomerang is excellent on its own, served neat or on the rocks, and also works well in a vodka-martini.
