Hamilton, Bermuda, August 24, 2020 — GREY GOOSE® vodka is excited to launch its first-ever Honey Deuce Cocktail Kit, available for delivery in metro New York and 10 major markets across the country. The Honey Deuce Cocktail Kit features everything you need to create the signature cocktail of the US Open right at home, including: a bottle of GREY GOOSE, the 2020 US Open commemorative cup, Chambord® black raspberry liqueur, lemonade and tennis-inspired honeydew melon balls skewered on GREY GOOSE garnish picks. Available in three different sizes via Sourced Craft Cocktails, the launch marks the first time that tennis fans can order the tournament’s signature cocktail along with its souvenir cup delivered straight to their doorsteps. The 2020 US Open Tennis Championships will be played August 31 to September 13.
As a US Open partner for nearly 15 years, GREY GOOSE is proud to celebrate this year’s unique tournament, but cannot do so without also acknowledging and fighting the presence of racial injustice in America. In continuation of the brand’s support of the NAACP, GREY GOOSE pledges to make a new donation in the name of its signature cocktail, the Honey Deuce—which is named after an equal score in tennis.
To help fans across the country live like they’re cheering from the stands, GREY GOOSE has once again joined the USTA to create a Limited-Edition US Open bottle, featuring an all-new tennis inspired design. The Limited-Edition bottle is available for individual purchase via Reserve Bar or, for metro New York, Chicago and Miami residents, in the 18-cocktail Honey Deuce Kit by Sourced Craft Cocktails.
“For over a decade, the Honey Deuce cocktail has been an integral, celebrated part of the US Open experience,” said GREY GOOSE Vice President, Martin de Dreuille. “It was important to us to connect the joy of that experience to fans tuning into the action at home, so we are thrilled to be launching Honey Deuce Cocktail Kits for the first time ever this year. And, more importantly, we are honored to be using our platform to continue the fight for a more just and equal society in this country through our continued support of the NAACP.”
“The Honey Deuce has become near synonymous with the US Open and it’s terrific that GREY GOOSE will keep the tradition going for fans engaging with the tournament in their homes,” said Lew Sherr, Chief Revenue Officer, USTA.
The Honey Deuce Cocktail Kit is available in 3 different sizes serving 8, 12, or 18 cocktails, with the Limited-Edition bottle included in the largest size (metro New York, Chicago, and Miami only and while supplies last). The kits are delivered same-day with fresh ingredients at Sourced Craft Cocktails to metro New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Los Angeles, Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, Washington D.C., Miami, Fort Lauderdale, Boca Raton, Denver, Nashville, and Phoenix. The Limited Edition bottle is available for purchase at Reserve Bar.
