The craft cocktail revolution has a firm grip on our generation, so showing up to a party with a bottle of Grey Goose is fine, but doesn't make anyone as excited as it used to do.
"What the fuck?!" you might be thinking. "Grey Goose has been proven to be the most premium vodka out there and I'm gonna look like a BALLER when I show up with it." Sure, no one's gonna be MAD if you show up with a bottle of Grey Goose, but nobody's really a brand loyalist anymore, instead leaning into the desire of wanting to try something new each time, and it doesn't really matter whether it's craft beer or a new "small batch" spirit.
So, show up with something new, like a bottle of Hangar 1 Vodka. Crafted in an old airplane hanger in California (hence the name) it's high-quality without being high-cost, and comes in a really cool bottle, which let's be real, everyone appreciates.
