1792© Whiskey, the untypical and award-winning whiskey, today announces Studio 1792, a one-night-only experience that will gather hip-hop legends Ralph McDaniels, Ice-T and Wyclef Jean for an evening of bourbon, cocktails, music and intimate discussion. The livestreamed event will take place from 9 p.m. – 10 p.m. EST digitally via https://style.1792bourbon.com/studio1792 and will offer fans unique access to exclusive conversations with some of hip-hop’s greatest talent about the untypical paths that have led each to where they are now.
Much like the talent who will grace the stage at Studio 1792, 1792 Whiskey is committed to elevating its category to exceptional new heights and isn’t afraid to do things differently on that quest.
“In a world of traditional, rustic bourbon brands, 1792 proudly stands out as a modern and cosmopolitan offering,” said vice president of global marketing at Sazerac, Sara Saunders. “From packaging to creative campaign and everything in between, 1792 is sophisticated, distinct and completely unexpected in American whiskey. That’s at the heart of what we’re celebrating with Studio 1792: those who are unafraid to do things a little differently, a little untypically… and the experiences that follow when you are open to those possibilities.”
Ralph McDaniels elaborated on Studio 1792: “Studio 1792 is a celebration of the road less traveled. Neither of our guests, or myself for that matter, found success overnight; getting to where they are today required resilience and confidence that in betting on themselves and the unknown, they could chart something new – better even. To me that’s the soul of what it means to be untypical, and why I’m excited to bring this experience to life with 1792 Whiskey.”
Also featured at the event will be live performances by Sugartone Brass Band and an after-party DJ set with @DJScratch.
