The “Oz” bottle comes in an orange and apple green color scheme, with vignettes, flowers and parrots that form the letters “O” and “Z”. A special neck tag is also attached to each bottle, revealing the four cocktail recipes and related images created by the filmmaker.
The Australian-born filmmaker embarked on this project in 2012, flying to the brand’s headquarters in Sweden to collaborate with mixologist Johan Evers. The result is vodka that has a spiced orange flavor base.
Luhrmann’s four other cocktails recipes are dedicated to each beach in Australia—they are “The Tama-Glama”, “The Hells Bells Beach”, “The Cable Beach ‘Stairway to the Moon’”, and “The South Avoca Elevator”.
This bottle will be launched in Australia next month, and will cost US$54.99.
