Grainshaker: 'What Does Vodka Mean To Me?' Competition

Following the successful Melbourne Cocktail Festival in 2022, Grainshaker are offering one of the bars a chance to develop and distil their own vodka.

About Grainshaker

Grainshaker is an Australian vodka, pot distilled in Melbourne. Australia grows some of the best grain in the world and we think those grains make equally as world-class spirit.

Distilled to extract flavour and texture, Grainshaker is a vodka with character - much more than just a vehicle for alcohol. 

We think vodka's had a pretty bad rap in recent years and think that's unfair. Everyone's got a relationship with vodka - Is it the purest expression of a spirit? A frozen accompaniment to oysters? Maybe it's the element that elevates your Espresso Martini? Or is it the tried-and-true party starter?

We want to celebrate great spirit, great vodka like only Australians can.    

The Prize

  • Develop and distil your own custom co-branded vodka with Grainshaker and The Distiller.

The value of the prize is $20,000.

If 200 700ml bottles at $12 per nip, the revenue generated will equal $52,800.
