Gorillaz have teamed up with Smirnoff for a new vodka collaboration.
Their aim is to “explore, celebrate and reimagine Smirnoff’s history in distinctive cocktail culture with a Gorillaz spin,” a press release explains. The result is a re-imagined limited edition bottle design and some special new cocktails, such as Murdoc’s Vodka Murdini, a spin on the classic vodka martini.
Commenting on the collaboration, Murdoc says: “Nothing to see here folks — just the OG vodka brand teaming up with the OG virtual band. Cheers Smirnoff — pleasure doing business with you! I’m not usually one for labels, but this is a beauty!”
The bottle will be available from Amazon and Bar.com from 27th October.
