LIQUID COURAGE
Spirited Collaborations

Last week, we at Joonbug attended the Macallan Masters of Photography Series launch event at the Bowery Hotel that debuted the drams latest venture into collaborative territory. That's right, the beloved whisky teamed up with photographer extroidinaire, Annie Leibovitz to launch a pricey, new bottle and promotional pictorals that featured Grey's Anatomy star, Kevin McKidd. The starry soiree brought much-a-buzz to Macallan paving way for more spirited collaborations?

We guess so, since receiving word that the next venture to launch is between, Patron Spirits and world-renowned fashion designer, John Varvatos. The first-ever artist to collaborate on a new design element of the Patron bottle, to craft a limited edition bottle stopper exclusively for Patron Anejo tequila.
