Steve Powers for Absolut Vodka
Absolut’s new Art of Sharing campaign prominently features two of our favorite artists, Steve Powers and Chiho Aoshima, creating four (2 each) custom pitchers for the vodka brand. These are must haves for the boozy, art lover. And if anyone is feeling generous enough after depleting some of the bottles content, they should send all four pitchers our way for further investigation.
Great news from our favorite spirit maker Art in the Age (makers of ROOT), as we see they are bottling a new spirit based on the Pennsylvania Dutch recipe for ‘Lebkuchen’, or ginger snap. This will be in our bar the moment we can get our hands on it!
I have no clue what’s going on here but, The Most Interesting Man in the World better be invloved.
Saw a blurry pic of this when my friend from the Whoa! was in Basel. He said it tasted “not like weed… just like Tea.” Which figures since it’s made of black tea with 5% hemp bloom syrup, and 0.0015% hemp bloom extract.

Forget about the part of this graphic which shows this as a bedside table. I think the initial concept was to ward off zombies. Zombies are lame, get over them. This table should be in bars, the classy kind where people get drunk and fight.

I remember reading Jay McInerney’s wine musings in the now defunct House & Garden, and thinking to myself that with age, he had become more interesting while writing about wine than penning novels.
“My first experience with a sparkling pink wine took place on a blanket on the lawn at Tanglewood in the company of a girl named Joan Coughlin. The Who were onstage performing “Tommy” and the warm summer air was perfumed with incense and cannabis smoke. The wine in question, Cold Duck, was, I discovered much later, composed of two parts New York State sparkling wine and one part California bulk red wine. I eventually learned to turn up my nose at Cold Duck, but I think my fond memories of that evening may have something to do with my abiding enthusiasm for rosé Champagne.”
Not that I wouldn’t read another book by him, it’s just that his characters matured way more quickly than I have. And I like to relate.
