Smirnoff Presents ‘True Originals’ in partnership with Gorillaz

Smirnoff Vodka has partnered with Gorillaz to release four new twists on their classic cocktails along with a limited-edition bottle, designed by band members for Gorillaz.

The limited-edition bottle is a reimagining of Smirnoff's no. 21 classic vodka, with the new cocktail recipes making up 'True Originals.'

Band members Murdoc, Noodle, Russel and 2D each created their own spin on cocktails from Smirnoff’s portfolio. Murdoc created the Vodka Murdini (based off the classic vodka martini) while Russel’s Smirnoff Brooklyn, from Russel himself, is said to pay homage to the vodka Manhattan and his love for chilli.

2D has turned the Smirnoff Vodka highball into the Vodka Eyeball, inspired by his pair of eyes which go from back to white. Lastly, Noodle has created Sayonara Martini Cocktail, based on the Smirnoff Passionfruit martini.

On the collaboration, Murdoc commented: “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!”

Mark Jarman, head of Smirnoff GB, added: “Smirnoff is built on the spirit of originality and individuality in all forms; Gorillaz are true originals who dare to push the boundaries in everything they do. We are thrilled to be working with the band to continue creating originality and disrupting the creativity of cocktails.”

The one-off bottle will be available at Amazon beginning 27 October.
