Partnership to feature a global series of powerful co-created art experiences and bottle launch events for Fall, 2018.

Belvedere Vodka, the original super premium vodka that stands for taste and character, has announced its global partnership with award-winning visual artist, musician, and activist Laolu Senbanjo, including a striking limited edition bottle now available in-stores. With an artistic vision to reveal the beauty within each of his subjects, the new limited edition bottle visually brings to life Senbanjo’s interpretation of the complexity, nuance and character of the Belvedere liquid.

A Brooklyn-based Nigerian-born performance and visual artist, Senbanjo’s main artistic medium is the skin; he is best known for his body-painting featured in Beyoncé’s Grammy Award-winning visual album, “Lemonade.”  He’s graced the cover of the Washington Post, and has been featured in The New York Times, The Guardian, Vogue, BBC, CNN, and NBC. In addition to Beyoncé, he counts artists including Alicia Keys, Swiss Beatz, Seun Kuti, Tony Allen, Alek Wek, and Danielle Brooks among his collaborators.

Senbanjo applies his mantra, “Everything is My Canvas,” to mural designs, fashion partnerships, live art events and installations, and now to the new limited-edition Belvedere Vodka bottle. The first Belvedere bottle with high-quality full-wrap sleeve technology features a flowing design with sharp edges that represent the water and rye working together to produce dimension and taste. Subtle skin-sense texture, which reacts to UV lights, is used to bring another sensory component to the bottle. The charcoal coloring and distinct shapes create complex, story-rich designs, which draw heavily from his Yoruba heritage.

“When Laolu paints a subject, each design is unique to what he believes depicts their inner beauty. This phenomenal message is seamlessly in line with our mission to reveal the unexpected beauty in life. Also as a social advocate and former human rights attorney, Laolu’s philosophies align with our commitment to community and creating positive action in the world; in this case, the program supports the (RED) organization and the Global Fund to fight HIV/AIDS in Africa, a cause we’ve been supporting for 8 years.”
– Rodney Williams, president of Belvedere Vodka

Belvedere Laolu Bottle

“As an artist I get to share my soul with people around me, my environment and the world and I’m able to channel my experiences like my journey as a human rights attorney and as a Nigerian. The Belvedere bottle design came from that inspiration as well as doing a lot of research about what Belvedere is at its core, like the rye and the pristine water. The bottle is an amazing blend of my art and bringing to life what Belvedere stands for—and I get to be a part of giving back to society, which means a lot to me.”
– Laolu Senbanjo

Belvedere Vodka and Laolu will reveal the limited-edition bottle at an event planned for Spring/Summer, 2019 New York Fashion Week in September. The bottle will support the global fund to help eliminate HIV/AIDS in Africa. The bottle comes in 70cl, 75cl, 1L and 1.75L sizes.

The “Rosé Wine Movement” has come to Manhattan in another shape: a two-story, fourteen-room building decked out in pink, aptly named Rosé Mansion.

The mansion is the brainchild of Morgan First and Tyler Balliet, founders of Second Glass. The duo came up with the ingenious idea of how to present rosé wine in a fun and educational format.

The pop-up mansion has themed, interactive rooms, each with a sample of rosé and a description. Whether the rosé comes from the Finger Lakes or South Africa, a pumped-up room ambassador welcomes you and shares some fun facts about rosé wine. And with decorations like a gold chandelier and a bar filled with hot pink sand, you’ll definitely want to snap a few pics to make your Instagram followers jealous.

For those in the wine and spirits industry, it never hurts to learn key facts to impress your clientele. At Rosé Mansion, you can guess the aromas in different rosé wines, find out how rosé is made, make your own rosé in the Blending Room, and much more.

Plus, the Grand Tasting Lounge, run by beverage director Cara Maldonado (former sommelier of City Winery), carries over 100 bottles of rosé—the largest selection in North America. It’s like taking a trip to Rosé Wine Country, with bottles from Mendoza to Provence adorning the sophisticated bar.

Rosé Mansion is a one-of-a-kind experience that focuses on the history, economics, and science of winemaking, with a lot of fun and glitz thrown in. The hour-long tour heightens the understanding of rosé wine in a relaxed atmosphere, complete with wine glass in hand. The tour concludes in the Grand Tasting Lounge, where you’ll have the option to enjoy some snacks and purchase bottles to take home.

Rosé Mansion is open now through Sunday, October 7, 2018, and is located at 445 Fifth Avenue in Manhattan. Tickets are $35 before 4:30 p.m., and $45 from 4:30 p.m. until admission closes at 9 p.m. Tickets include admission, eight samples of wine, a Rosé Mansion vino glass and collectible enamel pin, entry to the Grand Tasting Lounge, and other fun surprises!

Born and raised in Atlanta, Diallo attended Harvard University majoring in history with a minor focus in economics.

While in school, he picked up side gigs as a DJ, performing at college bars in Harvard and Central Square. The summer after his junior year, he took a trip to Los Angeles and decided he wanted to make the move out west after graduation. Since then, Diallo has spent time on both coasts, working in both Los Angeles and New York City.

Named one of Variety’s Top 10 Scribes to Watch, Diallo got his start in television as a writer on Chocolate News for Comedy Central. He went on to write and perform for Late Night with Jimmy Fallon from 2008-2012, arriving three months before the show premiered and as one of only five writers. Some of the stand-out segments he wrote include “Slow Jam the News featuring Barack Obama,” and the first three editions of “A History of Rap with Fallon and Justin Timberlake.”

As an EMMY and WGA nominated writer and actor, producer, showrunner, and moonlighting DJ, Diallo Riddle has proven to be one of the most creative and multi-faceted talents in the entertainment industry today. Diallo can be seen starring on NBC’s smash hit summer comedy series Marlon, which premiered season two on June 14. Loosely inspired by the real life of star Marlon Wayans, this update to the classic family comedy centers on a loving (but immature) father committed to co-parenting his two kids with his very-together ex-wife. Diallo will return as fan-favorite Stevie, Marlon’s overly intelligent, yet oblivious friend and confidant from college.

While acting in front of the camera keeps Diallo busy (he also recently appeared on NBC’s new drama series Rise) he continues to flourish in his writing career. It was recently announced that IFC picked up Sherman’s Showcase, a scripted musical variety sketch comedy show created by Diallo and his writing/producing partner Bashir Salahuddin (executive produced by John Legend’s Get Lifted Film Co). The eight-episode series will premiere in 2019 and has it all: music, comedy, games, and dancing. Diallo and Salahuddin also wrote and produced the series South Side about a rent-to-own business on the south side of Chicago, which was recently given a series order by Comedy Central.

When he isn’t on set acting, writing, or producing, Diallo can be found in the DJ booth. He has held DJ residencies at the Dream Hotel Highlight Room, Beauty & Essex, Skybar LA Mondrian, Soho House NYC, Boulevard 3, The Standard Hotel (both West Hollywood and Downtown LA), and Chateau Marmont. He has also performed at A-list events including the Golden Globes and the People’s Choice Awards. On the charity front, he is an active supporter of The Children’s Institute, a nonprofit organization that provides services to children and families healing from the effects of family and community violence within Los Angeles’ most challenged neighborhoods.

Tell us a bit about the projects you are working on.

We just wrapped filming on Season 2 of Marlon which was incredibly fun. Love Marlon and my cast mates like family.

Now, my writing partner and I are producing and starring in our Comedy Central show, South Side, in Chicago. It’s an edgy but funny look at what it really means to live and laugh and love in Chicago’s South Side community, using primarily Chicago actors who still live on the South Side. We think it’s important for the world to know that this community is about more than what we may see on the news.

And later this year we will be writing the comedy and music for our upcoming IFC sketch show, called Sherman’s Showcase. The concept of Sherman’s Showcase is that there is a show-within-a-show that has been on the air since the 1970s (like Soul Train or SNL). We bounce from year to year in the history of the show, so the clothes and hair and music reflects the year we are currently in.

At the heart of the madness is Sherman, the host. Think of him as an unhinged Dick Clark. We will have actual musicians and recording artists on the show playing themselves, other artists, and original characters that we the writers create for them. We think of this show as our In Living Color, our Chappelle Show, and we can’t be more excited to bring this completely original concept to the air. And the original songs to your earbuds.

With your busy schedule, what do you like to do with your downtime?

I sleep. I should work out, but I sleep. There’s nothing more chill than sleep.

When you go out to eat, where do you like to dine?

In LA, me and the wife love Nerano in Beverly Hills, and Pace in Laurel Canyon. And Via Veneto by the beach. We fancy!

What types of dishes do you usually order?

I know nothing is more en vogue than to diss all dishes with truffle on them, but I am not over it yet. Walk into Via Veneto and try to order something other than the truffle dishes. I dare you.

Do you cook?

I wish. I’m working on three shows and have three children. I’m out of bandwidth. I wish I cooked.

What types of drinks do you order when out?

I used to be a Mule guy. Lately I stick to the best Cabernets. But if I go harder, I sip Casamigos.

Do you prepare drinks at home?

Yes. I got good at Aperol-based drinks for a while.

Do you own a home bar?

Yes.

What is it stocked with?

We have the works. And we have lots of parties. We are lots of fun!

What is your favorite drink/cocktail?

Cabernet. Casamigos. And the occasional Macallan 18.

The Spirit of Adventurous Mixing with Mamont Vodka.

Recently, I am fascinated with aperitif cocktails that are typically sipped before a meal. The traditional practice of sipping a neat, chilled glass of Mamont with cured fish or charcuterie in Siberia quickly made me think of a trip to Spain, and how sherry was similarly utilized. I decided to put the two together to create a version of a Bittered Sling in the style of an Old Fashioned or Sazerac, but keeping the flavors subdued. In this way, they might accentuate the saltiness or richness of the food eaten with it.

CAMUS Cognac and a handful of Chilled 100 Ambassadors celebrate their sense of place by discovering what it is about their hometown, city, or state that speaks to them.

CAMUS is the world’s largest independent producer of cognac. Family owned for five generations and more than 150 years, CAMUS is renowned for their expertise in extracting a sense of place and converting it into a product. They have done that with their award winning Borderies VSOP, made from grapes grown in the smallest and most sought-after region of Cognac, also home to the CAMUS estate, and recently accomplished the same thing with the release this year of Lambay Irish Whiskey Small Batch Blend. Named after a private wildlife sanctuary off the coast of Dublin, Lambay Irish Whiskeys are made from the finest Irish whiskey distillates, finished in cognac casks with a touch of Trinity Well water from the Island that bears its name.

These four mixologists below received bottles of their Borderies VSOP cognac and their new release Lambay Irish Whiskey Small Batch Blend. In part one of this series, we explored cocktail recipes created using Borderies VSOP cognac from top mixologists across the U.S. In part two of this series, we will check out the unique cocktail recipes created using Lambay Irish Whiskey

The J Street

The J Street

By Jessica Weinstein – Hanks D.C., Washington D.C.

“When most people think of D.C., dark hotel bars and steakhouses come to mind, but underneath that white table cloth is a diverse and transient city that I call home. The “J Street” cocktail represents what our unique city has grown into—it melds the sights and smells of old school D.C. like Cognac and Scotch with the bright and adventurous flavors of new school creativity. It represents the amazing food, beverage, and arts scene that exists in our nation’s capital today. “J Street” is named after the only lettered street that you won’t find listed on a sign above the road … It’s named after what you’ll find underground.”

Ingredients:

  • 1 oz. Camus Borderies VSOP
  • 1/2 oz. Lambay Whiskey
  • 1/2 Lime Juice
  • 1/2 oz. Cereasum
  • 1/2 oz. Orgeat
  • 2 dashes Bitters

Preparation: Shake, drop into flask and fill with crushed ice. Top with 2 dashes angostura and garnish lavishly with mint.

Holly Trinity

Holly Trinity 

By Josue Gonzalez – The Broken Shaker, Miami

“The water used to distill Lambay comes from the Trinity well, and with it’s triple distillation I thought, Holly Trinity! This spectacular Irish whiskey is a great sipper, so how was I going make a cocktail reflecting my hometown? The answer is always pineapple, not only a sign of hospitality, but such a well rounded fruit. A dash of vanilla to bring out those cask aging notes and the spice of black walnut are a match made in cocktail heaven.”

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 oz. Lambay Irish Whiskey
  • 1 oz. Pineapple Juice
  • 3/4 oz. Vanilla Syrup
  • 1/2 oz. Fresh Lemon Juice
  • 4 dashes Black Walnut Bitters

Preparation: Combine 1 dash of walnut bitters and all remaining ingredients in a shaker, add Ice and shake vigorously. Strain into a footed pilsner and top with crushed ice finish with the remaining 3 dashes of walnut bitters over the top of the cocktail then top with more crushed ice. Garnish with a bamboo straw, pineapple slice, and a pretty flower. Enjoy.

Sassy Irishman

Sassy Irishman 

Created by Joel Cockerill – Flock n Fowl, Las Vegas

“For this drink, I wanted the citrus to take a back seat to the beautifully balanced cognac barrel finish of the Lambay, and to let the bitter and herbaceous notes of the sassafras, wild cherry bark, and complex cherry cola notes of the Peruvian Chuncho Amargo bitters take hold. I added a touch of Luxardo as well to work in tandem with the cherry bark and bitters to really bring the cherry notes to life.”

Ingredients:

  • 1 1/2 oz. Lambay Irish Whiskey Small Batch Blend
  • 1/4 oz. Luxardo Maraschino Liqueur
  • 1/2 oz. Fresh Lime Juice
  • 3/4 oz. Sassafras and Wild Cherry Bark Syrup
  • 1 dash of Chuncho Amargo Bitters
  • 1 Egg White Marigold and Lime Cheek (for Garnish)

Preparation: Add all ingredients to shaker, wet shake, strain and dry shake. Pour into nick and nora glass and garnish with marigold and lime cheek.

*Apricot and lemon peel infusion

Add dried apricots and Camus into an airtight container and steep as you would sun tea on a hot day for about 12 hours. Remove and add lemon peel for another 12 hours.

Treaty Oak Distilling, a vanguard distillery that has been at the leading-edge of the small spirits movement for over a decade, is ready to reach new heights.

Founded in 2006 by Daniel Barnes, this talented team of rebels have a clear cause—to make the best spirits that purposefully break from convention in order to create something new, or even curious. Comprised of distillers, sommeliers, botanists and architects, the crew draws inspiration from the past, but also the world around them.

“We strive to strike the perfect balance between heritage and innovation. Our willingness to be different based on knowledge and expertise is what sets us apart.”
– Daniel Barnes

Until now, the company’s award-winning portfolio of hand-crafted whiskey and gin has been one of the best kept secrets in Texas. But, thanks to a new partnership with Mahalo Spirits Group, a leading craft spirits sales organization, the upstart brand is set to make its mark on the spirits industry, by expanding its U.S. footprint beyond Texas into seven new markets, including: California, Florida, Georgia, Illinois, Michigan, Tennessee, and Virginia.

The Treaty Oak portfolio—from the most awarded distillery in Texas—includes three expressions each of whiskey and gin. The team carefully balances tradition vs. experimentation, and when possible, use local resources, including limestone filtered Texas spring water. In partnership with James Brown, (who is on the forefront of the heirloom grain movement), the team sources corn, wheat, and malted barley from Barton Springs Mill, where 90% of grains are grown by Texas farmers using sustainable organic practices. But, they’re also transparent when sourcing from outside partners.

“We find the best of the best and make it better. There’s no shame in that. The only shame would be blatantly misleading our customers.”
– Daniel Barnes

In preparation for its U.S. expansion, Treaty Oak refreshed the look and feel of its website, company logo, and the various brand bottles and labels, with help from creative powerhouse Crispin Porter+Bogusky. The whiskey portfolio now features paint-dipped background colors and texture with a classic design, while the trio of gins include disruptive paint strokes over a delicate juniper stem wrapped in oak leaves.

Here’s a look at the Treaty Oak Distilling portfolio of products:
