Florida Has A New Orange: Tanqueray Announces The U.S. Release Of New Flavor Tanqueray Sevilla Orange

Inspired By The Warmth Of Seville Orange Groves, Tanqueray Sevilla Orange Offers Delicious, Bittersweet Flavor to The Signature TANQUERAY Four-times London Dry Gin

Tanqueray, widely-known as the world’s most celebrated gin, has released Tanqueray Sevilla Orange. Launched in select Florida markets this summer, the new flavor epitomizes sunshine in a glass with its bittersweet orange taste and warm hints of spice. Known for its iconic green bottle and red emblem, TANQUERAY London Dry Gin is one of the world’s most award-winning gins, with a portfolio that includes TANQUERAY London Dry Gin, TANQUERAY No. TEN Gin, TANQUERAY Rangpur Gin and TANQUERAY Sterling Vodka.

Tanqueray Sevilla Orange launches in Miami and Orlando.

Tanqueray Sevilla Orange is created by infusing the brand’s four-times distilled classic London Dry gin with the essence of orange. Tanqueray has been making world-class gin for over 185 years. Founder Charles Tanqueray had a pioneering spirit and an obsession with creating the world’s finest gin. In this pursuit, he sourced botanicals from all around the world and created over 300 recipes. Charles Tanqueray once captured the sun-soaked taste of Seville orange groves in a recipe during the nineteenth century. His archival recipe inspired the creation of this new liquid. Tanqueray Sevilla Orange is an ideal complement for bright, fresh cocktails like Negronis, Sevilla Orange Spritz, Sevilla Orange & Tonic and more.

Tanqueray Sevilla Orange unveils a Wynwood mural in celebration of launching in Miami and Orlando.

We are thrilled to introduce Tanqueray Sevilla Orange into the U.S. market just in time for summer. This vibrant flavor innovation is perfectly crafted for bartenders and consumers to enjoy at sundown and anytime in between,” said Christina Choi, Senior Vice President of Gin at DIAGEO North America. “We encourage them to enjoy and serve Sevilla Orange responsibly as we remind spirits drinkers that gin is officially in.”

To celebrate the launch and bring Tanqueray Sevilla Orange to life, the brand has unveiled a mural in Miami’s Wynwood Art District located at the corner of NW 5th Ave + NW 27th (2701 NW 5th Ave), encouraging consumers to take snapshots of the artwork and try Florida’s new orange. If you’re planning to check out Wynwood’s latest exhibit, Tanqueray invites you to stop by the local restaurants currently serving Tanqueray Sevilla Orange in the Wynwood neighbourhood: Beaker & Gray and Three. Tanqueray Sevilla Orange can also be enjoyed in Orlando at local bars Celine and Mathers.

Mural artist and Miami local Nicole Salgar said, “Working with Tanqueray Sevilla Orange was an exciting experience. Their team did a great job of capturing the Miami feel with this mural, and it was a very fun challenge for me to execute. The Wynwood Arts District is a perfect setting for this mural, as it is a Miami landmark of public art and culture!

First introduced in Europe in September 2018, Tanqueray Sevilla Orange is now available in one Liter bottles at select accounts in Orlando and Miami. 750ml bottles will also be available this October 2019.

UGG Collective Launches For Autumn/Winter 2019

Brand Ushers In Seasonal Marketing Campaign With A Fresh Cast Including Musician H.E.R. And Entrepreneur Luka Sabbat

The iconic lifestyle brand continues to celebrate its uniqueness and elevated position by featuring personalities who highlight the diversity and spirit of UGG®.

From majestic mountains and wild woodlands to buzzing cities and quiet beach towns, California represents an eclectic paradise that brings together people from all across the world. For the brand’s new campaign, UGG® and the cast traveled across San Francisco finding breathtaking locations in the Presidio and historic Battery Chamberlain.

The UGG Collective consists of Californian musicians, actors, entrepreneurs, filmmakers, photographers and professional athletes. Like UGG®, they are bold, provocative, free-spirited, optimistic and real,” said Andrea O’Donnell, President, Fashion & Lifestyle Brands. “Each season, we select new groups of unique individuals to represent the brand. In telling their stories, we tell ours.”

This season the cast includes:

  • Gabi Wilson/H.E.R. dives into enigma to get listeners to focus on her sound rather than the person behind it. Writing and practicing music since the age of three, the California native’s soulful songs have garnered praise from the likes of Alicia Keys, Bryson Tiller, and Rihanna. Touted as one of R&B’s rising stars, she won her first GRAMMY Award in February 2019 and is part of a growing group of young creatives who are revising identity and art in the digital age.
  • Luka Sabbat does everything his own way. Growing up between New York and Paris with fashion-industry parents, he has an innate sense of style infused into everything he does—most notably, his self-made project “Hot Mess,” a collaborative collection of unapologetically raw photography, film, clothing, and furniture. Boldly unfiltered, he redefines what it means to be a young creative entrepreneur.
  • Crystal Moselle is intent on bringing more female perspectives to film, turning her lens on an all-girl cast in Skate Kitchen, which follows a group of unapologetically young, queer, and feminist skateboarders in NYC. Honest in her storytelling, Moselle’s tender curiosity allows her to create soft yet extraordinary moments on screen—uncovering beauty in pain, and truth in fiction.
  • Daniel Woods never cowers in the face of failure, embracing it as a ladder to greatness. Competitively climbing since age eight, he is currently at the top of his game, winning a gold medal at the IFSC World Cup in 2010 and dominating the American Boulder Series for the last decade. Passionate and daring, he pushes the limits of possibility on a daily basis.
  • Lola McDonnell is a free-spirited model whose wild heart and love for travel lead her to some of the world’s most beautiful places. Often accompanied by fiancé and fellow Collective member Zackery Michael, she leads an unconventional life of adventure.
  • Zackery Michael lives life on his own terms as a self-taught photographer who’s always on the road. From shooting fashion editorials in NYC and celebrities in L.A. to documenting the mountain tribes of Myanmar, his photography focuses on intimate shots of people and places, often featuring his girlfriend Lola McDonnell.

The brand campaign was shot by photographer Frederic Auerbach and produced by 3Star Productions. The cast was assembled by casting director Shay Nielsen, and came to life with the help of wardrobe stylist Kate Ruth, hair stylist Nikki Providence and makeup artist Dana Delaney. The locations were given flair and detail with the assistance of set designer Eli Metcalf.

I realized that he was right! That’s when I started my research; I started talking with the men and asked what they were looking for in their underwear, and pretty soon I was getting input from lots of men around the globe,” Yasemin, a renowned New York fashion designer who has been in the business for over 30 years, revealed.

There are 7 different collections in the Adam Smith Brand. The purpose is to allow different choices depending on the need – the Executive, (for men who wear suits and official dresses); Basic, (casual underwear); Sports, (for the gym, athletics, etc.); U-Collection, (for men who love colors and dinner dates); Relax Boxer Shorts, (for in-house use); Seamless Collection, (for men who need comfort and relaxation at all times); and Form Collections, (Work, Casual, Sports, Dates, In-house, and for men who love to define their shape respectively).

Yasemin added, “You can pick from our wide range of underwear lines, depending on your needs – whether it’s to wear comfortably under your suit, to help you work out without breaking a sweat, to looking your best for a date, or whatever else your needs may be. All designs are detailed for your comfort.
