Spritz of Australia: Qantas gets its own signature cocktail

SOFI has created an exclusive signature spritz cocktail for Australia’s national carrier, and it sounds pretty bloody yummy if you ask us.

The Sky Spritz is an ode to Australian native botanicals, featuring Davidson Plum and Finger Lime, both of which hail from the subtropical rainforests of Queensland.

SOFI first started working with Qantas in 2017, originally providing cocktails in its airport lounges.

This special recipe has been under development for over a year now, taking their strong Aussie partnership to new heights.

SOFI called on the expertise of 5th generation winemaker Simon Gilbert from Mudgee to create this soaring Australian spritz.

Tommy Maclean, the creator of SOFI (and himself a Queensland native) couldn’t be more excited to be part of the collaboration.

“SOFI was originally inspired by my travels around the world so it is really special to help Qantas celebrate Australia’s return to international skies,” Maclean said.

“Working with an iconic Australian brand like Qantas motivated us to encapsulate some of the unique flavours of our country and of course, we wanted everything to be locally sourced and all-natural as always.

“We are excited to share this refreshing taste of Australia with international travellers before they touch down.”

In terms of the look, “The QANTAS x SOFI Sky Spritz can design was inspired by retro plane tickets – a nod to the rich history of the Flying Kangaroo,” Matthew Squadrito, head of SOFI’s Sydney-based design agency, Squad Ink, said.

The Sky Spritz is available on Qantas international flights now.
