Leonora Carrington Tequila Decanter

BLOCKBAR.COM ANNOUNCES 1800® TEQUILA AS ITS FIRST EVER TEQUILA TO GO ON AUCTION 

To Celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, BlockBar Will Exclusively Auction an Extra-Rare Vintage of 1800 Colección Tequila, Custom-Designed Decanter by Renowned Artist Leonora Carrington, a Once-in-a-Lifetime Invitation to the Birthplace of Tequila and a Tour of Leonora Carrington’s Exclusive Art Collection in Tequila, Mexico .

Exciting news – to celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, 1800 Tequila & BlockBar are exclusively auctioning an extra-rare vintage of 1800 Colección Tequila with an accompanying custom-designed decanter by renowned artist Leonora Carrington at a starting bid of $25,000 HERE

Today, 1800 Tequila, the world’s most awarded tequila, will release its first ever NFT corresponding to a bottle of its coveted 1800 Colección Tequila, one of the rarest tequilas in the world. 1800 Tequila worked closely with celebrated surrealist artist Leonora Carrington, prior to her passing, to curate a unique decanter titled “El Rey del Tequila” complementing 1800 Colección rare extra añejo tequila. Carrington created only 15 of these silver-sculpted masterpieces fifteen years ago; never released for public sale. Now only one of these prized decanters is available for the first time as an ultra-exclusive collectible with a starting bid of USD $25,000 exclusively on BlockBar.com, the world’s first DTC NFT marketplace for luxury wines and spirits.

To celebrate Hispanic Heritage Month, 1800 Tequila will be the first ever tequila to auction on BlockBar.com. Ownership of the NFT includes the “El Rey del Tequila” (2009) Leonora Carrington-designed decanter accompanied by a bottle of 1800 Colección Tequila. The buyer will be invited to visit Jalisco, Mexico for a private tequila tasting at La Rojeña distillery, Latin America’s oldest distillery and the birthplace of tequila. They will also tour Leonora’s Carrington’s exclusive art collection showcasing her connection to the heritage of 1800 Tequila and allowing for a complete immersion in the land that inspired both Carrington and 220 years of 1800 Tequila quality and tradition. 

“We’re delighted to mark Hispanic Heritage Month by hosting our first ever tequila auction with the iconic 1800 Tequila,” comments Dov Falic, Co-Founder and CEO of BlockBar. “1800 Tequila has a history of partnering with world-renowned artists and this unique, never-made-available-before decanter designed by surrealist artist Leonora Carrington makes this auction highly desirable for tequila and art lovers alike.”

1800 Colección Tequila celebrates excellence in taste, in both tequila and in art, with past vintages having been paired with decanters custom-designed by renowned creators including Gary Baseman, Bosco Sodi and Hector Velazquez Ortus. As a first for luxury collectors worldwide, this year the brand is releasing one exclusive, limited-edition 1800 Colección Tequila vintage aged in ex-single malt whiskey casks from the United Kingdom as a nod to Leonora Carrington’s birthplace. As a deep-rooted Mexican heritage brand, 1800 Tequila commissioned Leonora Carrington, widely considered one of the most important artists in Mexico during the 20th century, to design a unique decanter complementing the ultra-rare liquid of 1800 Colección Tequila. The British surrealist artist was such an admirer of the agave plant and the liquid derived from it after arriving in Mexico in the 1940’s, that she designed “El Rey del Tequila” (“The King of Tequila”) decanter as a tribute. To be paired with the corresponding bottle of 1800 Colección Tequila, the silver sculpture is infused with amorphous characteristics intrinsic to her work, reflecting the fascinating magic of the heart of the agave. 

Only produced and released in the finest years of production, 1800 Colección Tequila is the pinnacle of liquid superiority and a result of a delicate artisan process meticulously supervised by Master Distiller Alejandro Coronado, who creates a special balanced blend between it and the finest aged tequila reserves. 1800 Colección Tequila begins with the selection of the highest-quality agaves that have reached optimum maturity. Following 1800 Tequila tradition, the agaves are steam cooked for several days in stone ovens obtaining a very selected extract, which is then distilled twice, followed by several years of slow aging in ex-single malt whiskey casks. The result is an exquisite, distinctively aged extra añejo tequila with a silky consistency, deep golden color and smooth mellow taste with a subtle touch of caramel, honey and almond that is one of the finest vintages in existence – numbered, limited and certified. 

“Always at the forefront of culture, 1800 Tequila partnered with BlockBar to release its first NFT to bring the centuries-old tequila-making tradition to a new audience who appreciates luxury spirits and unique, high-value art,” says Lander Otegui, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Proximo Spirits. “A decades-long champion and benefactor of art and culture, 1800 Tequila will contribute 50% of the proceeds from the 1800 Colección Tequila NFT sale directly back to the Council of Leonora Carrington for preservation of various collections including drawings, sculptures and textiles. With a new generation of luxury spirits drinkers and art collectors, this will be the first of many 1800 Colección Tequila NFTs to come.”

1800 Colección “El Rey del Tequila” bottle and decanter will be auctioned off with a starting bid of USD $25,000 from 10:00am EST on Monday, September 12th, ending at midnight on Thursday, September 15th.

DannyLux, the young promise of romantic sierreño music, continues to sow success, taking his lyrics to the world and pleasing his followers. The Mexican American singer-songwriter is debuting his latest single “Junto A Tí.” This project highlights a version of the artist that explores his creative versatility and avant-garde capabilities.

Junto A Ti” is a track that continues his romanticism in a ballad in his own style written and produced by DannyLux himself. DannyLux represents a fresh and strong voice in the successful new Mexican folk music movement that is seducing the world. The music video directed by Daniel Aldaco & Tevan, shows a romantic side in which the couple looks very much in love enjoying every second together.

My favorite verse from this song has to be ‘A cualquier hora, tu me apasionas, si tu no estas soy un desierto,’ which basically means that being with my girlfriend fills me with passion and without her I feel empty like a desert,” comments DannyLux.

At the young age of 17, DannyLux already has a significant music career. In early 2022, DannyLux was selected to be the opening act for the prestigious band Coldplay during their stadium tour in Mexico for a total of eight dates.

After having surpassed more than 15 million plays of his album “Perdido en Ti“, DannyLux continues to grow by leaps and bounds and with a lot of attention from the platforms and the media. DannyLux is currently featured in playlists such as Viva Latino with his song “Si Supieras” along with Eslabón Armado and it is important to remember that DannyLux has been TOP 100 Global on Spotify with Jugaste y Sufrí (#87) and in the Top 200 with Si Supieras (#156).

Recently, DannyLux was featured on Billboard’s coveted annual “21 Under 21” list, becoming one of two Latin artists to make the list. DannyLux is currently working on new music expected to be released soon under Warner Music Latina

About DannyLux:
Daniel Valderrama Espinoza better known as Dannylux was born on March 12, 2004 in Palm Springs California and at 17 years old he already has an important musical career. At his young age, DannyLux was discovered on TikTok and since then his sound has captivated thousands of people.

This release occurs a week after having presented El Plumas, which already reports more than 215 thousand reproductions only on the Spotify platform and of which a video is being considered soon.

Last week Junior H, one of the main voices of the Rancho Humilde label, had reached the resounding number of 100 million views on the Spotify platform for his most recent album entitled Mi Vida En Un Cigarro Vol.2.

Mireya Ramos – Debut Album

Latin GRAMMY Award-winning Latinx vocalist Mireya Ramos releases her debut solo album, Mireya, on ONErpm with a star-studding affair featuring some of the biggest names in Latin music today, May 31, 2022. Mireya spotlights the acclaimed singer and founder of all-female mariachi band Flor de Toloache alongside special guests Adrian Quesada (Black Pumas), Mike Garson (Davis Bowie), Camilo Lara (Mexican Institute of Sound), Gaby Moreno, Jorge Glem, Claudia Brant, Haydée Milanés, Leo Genovese, Velcro, and Roman Rojas. An autobiographical depiction of a day in the life of Ramos, Mireya unveils stories of Afro-Latino pride, police brutality, Black Lives Matter, unbridled love, break-ups, and self-love.

Mireya dives into the story of a brown girl from Puerto Rico born to a Dominican mom and Mexican mariachi dad; of her nights dancing to New York City hip-hop and at Giant Step events; of jamming on her violin with DJs and bands from all over the world while hustling in Queens and Brooklyn performing mariachi music to make rent. It’s a reflection of her musical globe-trotting adventures from India and New Zealand (with her partner Andy Averbuch) to life-changing mariachi performances at The White House, the Latin GRAMMYs (live set celebrating Ruben Blades, “Person of the Year 2021”), and NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert.

Mireya represents my path and growth and the experiences that inspired that progress,” says Mireya Ramos. “It’s taken 10 years to bring this album out the way I’ve intended to. The process all started with laying down tracks in 2012 with producer Sinhue Padilha, who now tours with Lila Downs. It’s taken on a whole new life since then with so many of my favorite musicians playing on the recording. Mireya is a carefully crafted, honest portrayal from my soul to the ears and minds of those keen to know what makes me who I am.

Ramos sings down the cultural barriers between modern Anglo and Latin music on Mireya, blending genres with textures of Mexican classics while revealing the emotional heritage of America’s future. Mireya opens with Nunca te voy a Olvidar with Flor de Toloache, Jorge Glem and Roman Rojas. On the track, Ramos never forgets where she came from and shares the riches of Latin culture with the world.

La Llama highlights her collaboration with Adrian Quesada of Black Pumas; Ramos also appears on Quesada’s new album, Boleros Psicodélicos (ATO Records; June 3, 2022), on the track Tus Tormentas. A catchy hip-hop beat, thick low-end bass guitar, and Ramos’ violin set the perfect vibe for the duo’s vocals to glide above. With lyrics by Ramos’ brother Velcro, La Llama features her rapping debut. Inspired by Stevie Wonder’s Master Blaster, Canto takes listeners on a dub-adventure with chill island reggae putting smiles on listeners’ faces. Produced by Andy Averbuch, Canto includes a crew of Kiwi musicians from Ramos and Averbuch’s year-long stay in Aotearoa, New Zealand during the pandemic.

Lady Grinning Soul by David Bowie gets a Latinx make-over featuring pianist Mike Garson (who plays on the original track on the Bowie album, Aladdin Sane) with Ramos singing in Spanish and English with vocalist Gaby Moreno. The stripped-down version follows Ramos’ full-band single of the track produced by Camilo Lara (Mexican Institute of Sound). The remixed version on Mireya takes the vocals, piano, and strings centerstage.

Angelitos Negros, also featuring Camilo Lara, has been with Ramos her entire life with her mother singing it since she was a young child. Angelitos Negros speaks to the importance of the representation of black and brown communities, and the lack thereof. In the case of the storyline of Angelitos Negros, the whitewashing of BIPOC communities in historical paintings. Ramos took to the streets to perform Angelitos Negros at Black Lives Matter protests across the globe. Composed by her cousin Sonia Montez, Climbing Fences was inspired by the Michael Brown police shooting case in Ferguson, MS and represents all police brutality cases in black and brown communities.

Mireya rounds out with songs of love and loss. Mi Mayor Fortuna is a power-ballad writing collaboration between Ramos and two-time GRAMMY Award-winner Claudia Brant. Ramos channels the great Latin pop singers Laura Pausini and Cristian Castro with her soaring vocals on this heart-wrenching rancheras. Produced by Sonia Montez, La Golondrina is a beautiful Mexican classic traditionally performed at funerals and tributes her grandmother, Manisa. Ever since Ramos heard Imogen Heap’s Hide and Seek, she’s envisioned recording herself doing a version of La Golondrina with the vocoder effect. The melody itself is sweet, yet melancholic. The rancheras Canción Mixteca features singer Haydee Milanés and Gaby Moreno, who contributes deft electric guitar work underneath the emotive vocal harmonies.

Quédate Aquí is equally fit for driving with the windows down and the volume up or on a sweaty dance floor. A cover of New Zealand’s stadium-packing pop behemoth Six60, Quédate Aquí is the Latinx summer jam of 2022. Para Mí carries an electro-synth soundscape with tasty drums by Stevie Wonder’s touring percussionist, Euro Zambrano. Ramos sings of a difficult ending to a romantic relationship, where her former lover keeps appearing in her dreams while she wishes he was only a faint memory.

Beauty Free is a self-assurance hymn, a mantra. Ramos composed the piece when she was not feeling herself, but knew she could rely on the healing powers of music. She wrote Beauty Free to remind herself that she is strong, beautiful, and always her own favorite girl.

“…her tender new single ‘Mi Mayor Fortuna’ further cements her as a powerhouse of a vocalist…

the romance she oozes is so beautiful it’s contagious.” –Remezcla

Stunning Rentals in the Exclusive Gated Enclaves of Palmilla and Pedregal 

Cabo Platinum announces two new villas, Casa Fish and “The Cliff House,” to their award-winning collection of luxury vacation rentals. The in-house team carefully selected each property to create experiences that offer all the amenities of a resort, the utmost privacy of a home, and the five-star hotel services provided by the Cabo Platinum concierge. The 4400 square foot Casa Fish resides in the prestigious Caleta enclave in Palmilla, a quick golf cart ride to the One & Only Palmilla. Located in the gated community of Pedregal, The Cliff House features almost 11,000 square feet with panoramic views from the Pacific Ocean to the Sea of Cortez. 

“Cabo Platinum is thrilled to bring these two exclusive properties to discerning travelers everywhere,” says Mishan Andre, owner of Cabo Platinum. “Their locations are steps away from the destination’s best beaches and local culture while offering our guests heartstopping views during their vacation.” 

Casa Fish: After purchasing in 2017, the owner invested another $1 million USD to raise the bar and improve the spanish-style villa with an outdoor bar and luxurious amenities and finishes. The resort-like home offers the ideal vacation space for families, couples, and groups. The house features four bedrooms, each with private en-suite bathrooms for the utmost privacy, an additional two half baths, an open concept chef’s kitchen, office, and entertainment space: a 40-foot lap pool and jacuzzi complete the secluded and luxurious tropical atmosphere. The home is second row from the beach and a short walk to the exclusive Palmilla sand. Located in the exclusive, gated community of Caleta Palmilla, a short golf cart trip brings guests to the on-site spa services at the One & Only Palmilla. Additionally, the Shoppes at Palmilla provides guests with various dining choices, art galleries, shopping, and a seasonal weekly organic market. Rates begin at $3000 per night, with a minimum three-night stay. The price includes daily breakfast chef service (food cost extra) and butler service for the entire visit.

The modern coastal interiors, designed by Cabo Platinum Interiors, feature plush conversation areas in front of a fire or reading and game nook. A heated pool and a hot tub create the perfect outdoor living experience outside the oversized wraparound terrace. Enjoy a morning yoga session on one of the five terraces and head to the sauna, contemplating the waves from the inset picture windows. A quick five-minute ride from the bustling downtown of Cabo San Lucas, residents and tourists hob-nob at local restaurants, clubs, and shopping districts.

For its debut in Mexico, Lids will open four locations in the metropolitan area, State of Mexico, and Queretaro: Parque Toreo, Galerías Toluca, Premium Outlet Punta Norte, and Premium Outlet Querétaro, all opening in the coming months.

Each store will have the immersive shopping experience of the extensive licensed and branded merchandise that Lids has long been known for. Products in each store will include a wide variety of products from major U.S. league teams MLB, NFL, and NBA, among others, as well as items from well-known brands such as adidas, Nike, New Era Cap, ’47, Mitchell & Ness, Hurley, Oakley, and more. The Premium Outlet Punta Norte store will feature Lids’ exclusive custom areas, which give consumers the opportunity to embroider a cap of their choice there.

The expansion in Mexico is strategic for Lids, as the brand seeks to further expand its international presence in the future. “For over 20 years we’ve received feedback from Mexico longing for the world’s largest hat and jersey selections to be closer to home. We’re thrilled to finally make that a reality this month as we open four locations in Mexico, bringing the best selection of sports and fashion headwear to the country,” said Lawrence Berger, Co-Founder and Partner at Ames Watson and Chairman of FanzzLids Holdings, which is the owner of Lids.
