SKYY Vodka Winter Star Cocktail Shaker Will Help Consumers Give Back This Holiday Season
SAN FRANCISCO, Oct. 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate the holiday season, American-made SKYY® Vodka is partnering with internationally renowned designer Michael Aram and The Creative Coalition, the premier nonprofit charity of the arts and entertainment communities, to launch the exclusive, stylish, and limited edition SKYY Vodka Winter Star Cocktail Shaker by Michael Aram.
Available for a limited time during the important gift-giving months, the SKYY Vodka Winter Star Cocktail Shaker by Michael Aram was inspired by the iconic cobalt blue SKYY Vodka bottle. The festive star design marks a first-time collaboration for Aram and makes sophisticated cocktail style easy for holiday gifting and home entertaining. Proceeds from each shaker will benefit The Creative Coalition and the organization's initiatives that support First Amendment rights, arts advocacy, and public education making it easy for gift givers to show their true holiday spirit in style.
"Last year, SKYY Vodka teamed up with amfAR to create a flocked blue velvet limited-edition holiday bottle to support AIDS education and prevention. This year's partnership with Michael Aram and The Creative Coalition will focus on bringing elegance to at-home entertaining for the holidays while also supporting a very worthy cause," said Kathleen Schuart, Senior Marketing Director, SKYY Vodka. "The SKYY Vodka Winter Star Cocktail Shaker not only showcases SKYY Vodka's dedication to quality, innovation and style, but also our commitment to charitable giving. For seasonal gifting and holiday parties, we hope consumers will look to this signature barware item as a fun way to truly get in the spirit of giving this year."
Designer Michael Aram took a rare departure from his iconic botanical motifs to create this modern cocktailing essential. "I'm a believer in elevating and simplifying at-home entertaining – and working with SKYY Vodka on this project is the perfect pairing of artisanal design and spirits," said Michael Aram.
