Derived from the Aboriginal word for "water over rocks," CooranBong is the first super premium vodka distilled from Australian grapes in the world. Using select hand-picked Shiraz and Cabernet Sauvignon grapes from the Barossa Valley, CooranBong emphasizes a unique 10x distilling process. The logo borrows from ancient Aboriginal artwork, emphasizing the number four and its value towards the elements, seasons and cardinal directions amongst others.

Taking advantage of the non-existence of a definition of vodka in many countries, Cooranbong follows a trend seen with Cîroc and is distilled from grapes. CooranBong vodka is gluten-free.[1]

Awards[edit]

So far in 2008, CooranBong has been the recipient of two silver medals.[citation needed] Its first medal was awarded for superior packaging design at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition. The second, and most recent, medal was presented for exceptional taste by the International Wine and Spirits Competition in London.

Distribution[edit]

Currently, CooranBong is available for distribution in California, Colorado, Illinois, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, and Texas. Eight new states are expected to be added by the end of 2008.
