A full moon will cast its mysterious spell over the world on 30 September – to celebrate this captivating lunar spectacle, Zubrowka brand ambassador and cocktail connoisseur, Pawel Rolka, has created the Zubrowka Thyme Full MoonCocktail.
Legendhas it that the bison grass that gives Zubrowka its distinctive herbaceous flavour grows surprisingly well under a full moon. It is not known what causes this enchanting natural wonder, but the rare bison grass, which only grows in the remote Bialowieza Forest in north-east Poland, becomes remarkably fragrant and releases a unique almond-like vanilla aroma during this mysterious lunar phase.
The full moon is expected to occur when the moon is exactly opposite the sun ataround 3am (GMT) on 30 September. To celebrate the unusual influence the full moon has on the bison grass, Pawel Rolka has prepared a special Full Moon Cocktail – the Zubrowka Thyme
Commenting on his Zubrowka Thyme Full Moon Cocktail, Pawel Rolka said: “Thyme has a wonderfully distinctive aromatic flavour that works beautifully well alongside the herbaceous notes of our bison grass-infused vodka. Thyme also has a slightly warming character, which will be perfect for the September full moon – the temperature might be dropping, but the Zubrowka Thyme Full Moon Cocktail will lift your spirits.”
The Zubrowka Thyme Full Moon Cocktail will be shared on Zubrowka’s Facebook page at www.facebook.com/zubrowkauk and Twitter feed @Zubrowkauk
Bartenders and budding cocktail creators everywhere will be invited to submit their own Full Moon Cocktail creations.
This Zubrowka Full Moon Cocktail is the fourth in a series – a delightful new cocktail combination will be created each month on the date of the full moon.
