Two masters vision – Patron Tequila and Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro

20247972_10154537494611249_7376979559548599106_oVery impressive and artistic Patrón x Guillermo del Toro is packaged in an upside down 750ml bottle with a small skull shaped bottle Patron’s aged orange liqueur  on top resembling a human body and skeleton. The expression is a blend of Patrón Tequilas aged for an average of more than five years in a combination of different new and used oak barrels.

It is described as having notes of “light honey, nuts and raisins, slight vanilla, and oak, with a long finish of agave and oak courtesy of the barrels”.

The packaging design was inspired by jimadores, the labourers who harvest and trim the blue agave that creates Tequila.

This partnership marks one of the first commercial collaborations del Toro has engaged outside of the entertainment industry.

“Tequila courses through the veins of my native land, Jalisco. It represents a communion between spirit and earth, steeped in time and tradition, and a source of pride that roots us and defines us both,” said del Toro. “Through the years, I have been offered many collaborations in designing and executing different products. I have never been tempted. This creation has been an adventure, and a privilege.”

ONLY 3000 BOTTLES MADE WORLD WIDE.

RUINART imagesNPNJI0RTCHAMPAGNE & TRUFFLED POPCORN

Before we start all the fun stuff happening this Friday May 1st at our store, let’s talk about Ruinart is the oldest established Champagne house in Remis, France.

Since 1729, Ruinart Champagne has an authentic Champagne House.  It is also the First Delivery of the “Wine with bubbles” since that time.   At first the sparkling wine was a business gift for cloth purchasers, as Dom Ruinart’s brother was a cloth merchant, but 6 years later Maison Ruinart terminated its cloth selling activities due to success in the Champagne business. Since then, the Maison has kept the standards of excellence of its founders.

Ruinart has had a long standing relationship with the Arts. In 1895, Andre Ruinart asked Czech artist Alphonse Mucha  to illustrate a poster of Ruinart. Today the brand is still closely involved with Contemporary Art and plays a role in numerous international events such as ARCO, the Foire de Bale, the Carre Rive Gauche, London Design, and Miami Art Basel.

The house utilizes talent today: India Mahdavi, created the “Champagne Spoon” bottle stopper in 2006, Christian Biecher, created the “Flower” bottle stopper in 2007, Patricia Urqiola, designed the “Fil d’Or” bottle stopper in 2010 and Maarten

So please be sure to stop by for a great night at Mel and Rose where we will sample Ruinart Champagne,  French Films and Truffle Popcorn on May 1st, 2015 between 6-8 pm
