Underground Spirits Australia celebrates World Caramel Day

From the weird to the wonderful, there’s a celebratory day for everything in our modern lives – including the luscious treat that is caramel.

To mark the illustrious occasion of World Caramel Day on 5 April, award-winning distillery Underground Spirits Australia will be serving its unique Vodka with Caramel spirit at a decadent industry event at Sydney’s brand-new luxury hotel, the Little National on Clarence Street.

The event is the perfect excuse to signal to industry movers and shakers, from stockists and retailers to influencers and cocktail aficionados, that the Canberra-based Underground Spirits distillery is expanding into the national drinks market.

“Imagine a smooth, premium vodka with the sweetness of caramel – this spirit is a real indulgence. You can drink it neat, over ice or enjoy in a vodka martini to add a new dimension to this cocktail classic that is now on tap at the Little National.

“Thanks to our sleek machine, we can consistently serve the perfect Underground Caramel Espresso Martini. It pours a perfectly cold, smooth and indulgent cocktail in seconds – no more waiting eons for a mixologist to do the job.”

Now it’s time for Sydney to discover Underground Spirits Australia.

“We use caramel that is made for us in Queensland and fold it thoroughly into the vodka to give it its smooth, sweet flavour – and none underground spirits australia of this is lost in our Caramel Espresso Martini on tap, which effortlessly replicates the premium taste that is synonymous with all our Underground Spirits.”

The distillery has partnered with Little National Hotel, situated in heart of Sydney’s CBD and dining precinct, for this indulgent event. Part of DOMA Group – one of the largest private hoteliers in the ACT – Little National’s new Sydney hotel is a key location in the brand’s expansion into New South Wales.

The hotel’s innovative, luxurious and sophisticated design reflects the values of Underground Spirits Australia.

At the World Caramel Day event Little National will be serving up Vodka with Caramel-inspired canapes, including Slow Cooked Pork Belly with Caramel Vodka, Chilli, Ginger & Shallots; Caramel Vodka Drunken King Prawns; Brulee Tart; and a spectacular Chocolate Tart With Caramel Vodka Foam.
