I made my way into Marquee night club in Chelsea with the promise of “The Vodka of Tomorrow.” The folks at VDKA 6100 (pronounced “vodka 6100”) had piqued my interest the moment I walked in with a banner that boasted “Originated in Australia, Distilled in New Zealand, Designed in New York, Sculpted in France”… Jeez, this is some well-travelled stuff! My thirst lingered and I walked into a packed dance floor with beautiful girls serving shots of VDKA 6100 at my disposal. I’m not generally one to shoot vodka so pardon me if I was a skeptic, but I took down the small glass of the spirit of the night and was pleasantly surprised. Smooth from beginning to end with a subtle flavor that was so enjoyable it made me laugh at the lemon wedges on the tray. This was good stuff. It had a refreshingly cool finish and before I knew it, I had shrimp and flatbread being offered my way as well. The DJ’s were spinning 90’s classics from the likes of Crystal Waters and Robin S and with a 6100 vodka soda in hand, the vibe was super cool into the night.
Midway through the party, an acrobatic dancer was raised on a sheet to the ceiling and danced above us next to the disco ball (Think: Pink’s classic 2012 MTV Video Awards performance). This certainly purveyed the feeling that it’s #AlreadyTomorrow. All things considered, the folks at VDKA 6100 succeeded in introducing their new spirit to New Yorkers in style. And even though it might already be tomorrow for VDKA 6100, we’ll have to see what the bright future holds for the budding brand. Check out our photos below:
