Drink Spotlight: Nespresso Reveals Colorful, Candy-Inspired Limited Edition Collection For The Festive Season


Artists Craig & Karl add a pop of color to the latest Nespresso Limited Editions

NEW YORK, Nov. 3, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Coffee lovers are set to be full of joy this holiday season as Nespresso reveals its Limited Edition Festive Collection, in collaboration with renowned artists Craig & Karl. To bring to life the color and fun of the season, this exclusive collection has been inspired by traditional candies that evoke nostalgic childhood memories.

To create the ultimate gift collection, Nespresso has teamed up with design duo Craig & Karl. Craig Redman and Karl Maier are transatlantic-based university friends turned creative collaborators who have a love for simple shapes paired with wildly colorful patterns and a wry sense of humor. The duo have injected their signature colors and patterns into both the Nespresso Limited Edition Variations coffees and espressos and into a selection of unique accessories that make the perfect gifts for design and coffee aficionados.

Craig and Karl explained: "We were inspired by the Nespresso Variations flavors and the notion they were all based around old-style confectionery. We were also mindful that the design had to feel modern and relevant to now, so in our initial development we honed in on candy cane style stripes, which were prevalent in the past. In it, we saw a classic motif that can evoke nostalgia for the customer, but one that equally feels current owing to its bold and graphic form. We also loved that the stripes once applied to dome-shaped capsules gave them the appearance of candy themselves."

The holidays are a time for unique experiences, and the range of Nespresso Limited Edition Variations Confetto coffees and espressos do not disappoint in that regard. Their candy-flavored aromas are combined with the highest quality Pure Arabica to invoke feelings of surprise and wonder. There are three OriginaLine and three Vertuo™ Variations to try, each with a Craig & Karl designed capsule.

The OriginalLine Variations consist of Pure Arabica from Southern and Central America, while the Vertuo™ Variations consist of a smooth Arabica from Ethiopia in addition to the Arabica blend from Southern and Central America.

OriginalLine Variations Confetto Snowball – a delicious espresso pairing sweet coconut notes with a touch of vanilla.
Intensity: 6

OriginalLine Variations Confetto Orangette – the bittersweet flavor of an orange peel and a hint of chocolate are vibrant in this flavored espresso.
Intensity: 6

OriginalLine Variations Confetto Licorice – a tasty combination of spices and licorice candy notes are prominent in this espresso.
Intensity: 6

VertuoVariations Confetto Banana – a sweet banana flavor, reminiscent of banana candy, is present in this coffee. With milk, the roasted coffee notes fade, further enhancing the sweet indulgence.
Intensity: 5

Vertuo Variations Confetto Peppermint Cane – the peppermint flavor comes to life with a distinctive candy-sweet note characteristic of a peppermint candy cane within this coffee. With a touch of milk, the lingering notes of peppermint soften to reveal a well-balanced finish.
Intensity: 5

Vertuo Variations Confetto Cherry – the cherry flavor opens up, harmonizing with almond notes for a cherry candy inspired treat within this coffee. With the addition of milk, the coffee flavor is reminiscent of a sweet dessert.
Intensity: 5

The latest Limited Edition Les Collections range from Nespresso is full of one-of-a-kind gifts that feature unique designs by Craig & Karl. The range offers something for all coffee-lovers, a taste for smooth and creamy milk based coffee recipes, or simply a passion for bold graphic design. The range includes:

  • Touch Espresso Cups designed by Craig & Karl
    Set of two espresso cups made from a mix of black porcelain and soft-touch silicone, featuring colorful Craig & Karl stripes inspired by licorice candies. $20.00

Packaging Spotlight: Patrón Tequila Perfects Holiday Gift Giving with Patrón Silver One-Liter Limited Edition Bottle


Mexican Folk Art-Inspired Large-Size Bottle, in Convenient Gift Bag, is the Must-Have Collectible for the 2017 Holiday Season

ATOTONILCO EL ALTO, Jalisco, Mexico, Nov. 1, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Patrón Tequila is once again perfecting the season of gift giving and holiday entertaining with the introduction of this year's Patrón Silver One-Liter Limited Edition bottle.  This third in a series of collectible large-size bottle designs for the holidays is inspired by Mexico's tradition of vibrant ceramic and textile folk art.

The brightly colored pewter bottle label on this year's special edition release features Patrón's iconic bee design and depicts elements of Patrón's meticulous production process, including renderings of the native Weber Blue Agave from which Patrón is created, the razor sharp ax used to chop the harvested agave, and the traditional "tahona" stone which crushes the cooked agave to begin the fermentation and distillation process. The bottle is topped with an intricately designed metallic stopper, mirroring the detailed aesthetic of the label, and is packaged in a beautiful green gift bag, reminiscent of Patrón Silver's signature box.

Inside this limited production bottle, every drop of ultra-premium Patrón Silver tequila is handcrafted in small batches from the highest quality 100 percent Weber Blue Agave, and distilled and bottled at the Hacienda Patrón distillery in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico.

"Patrón is always one of the most-gifted spirits during the holidays and our limited-edition large size bottle has become something that people look forward to every year, both as a gift for someone special, and for holiday entertaining," said Lee Applbaum, Global Chief Marketing Officer at Patrón Spirits. "The distinctive label design of this year's bottle - influenced by our rich Mexican tradition of crafting artisanal tequila - offers a truly unique gifting option for those who enjoy and appreciate high-quality, luxury spirits."

From gifting, to mixing-and-matching simply perfect cocktails this season, Patrón has the holidays covered. The Patrón Cocktail Lab, a library of hundreds of versatile cocktail recipes developed by Patrón's mixology team in collaboration with talented bartenders around the world, uses an interactive interface to tailor recommendations to each visitor to the site.  This fall and holiday season, hosts searching for their holiday go-to cocktail can find anything to match their tastes, from the herbaceous "Daylight Saver" (made with Patrón Silver tequila, Patrón Citrónge Orange liqueur, Lillet Blanc, fresh lime, and a touch of absinthe) to the tart and refreshing Cranberry Cooler (combining Patrón Silver tequila, Patrón Citrónge Lime liqueur, cranberry juice, and club soda).

The Patrón Silver One-Liter Limited Edition bottle is available at fine spirits and liquor retailers across the country for the suggested retail price of $59.99. For more information, please visit www.patrontequila.com.

About Patrón Tequila
From hand-harvesting the highest-quality 100 percent Weber Blue Agave, to the traditional, time-honored distillation process and individual labeling, numbering, and inspection of each bottle, Patrón tequila is crafted with meticulous precision and care. Though Patrón has grown to become one of the most-recognized and respected luxury spirits brands in the world, it is still exclusively produced in the Highlands of Jalisco, Mexico, in the same small batches and with the same commitment to quality and craftsmanship.

Packaging Spotlight: Budweiser Kicks Off The Holiday Season In Spirit With A New Holiday Look


Budweiser Continues to Lead the Way in Design and Innovation, Adding a Limited Edition Holiday Bottle to its Roster

NEW YORK, Nov. 22, 2016 /PRNewswire/ -- To celebrate the 140th holiday season of America's No.1 full-flavored lager, Budweiser is launching newly designed limited-edition holiday packaging, spreading holiday cheer nationwide. Debuting this month, the seasonally relevant packaging is designed to creatively reflect Budweiser's traditional festive holiday spirit.

Designed in partnership with Jones Knowles Ritchie New York, the all-red, tonal look is inspired by the brand's longstanding history of decorating its 12 US breweries for the holidays. The seasonal aluminum bottles highlight the brand's strongest equities, specifically the colors of red and white – which fit right in with the holiday season.

"At Budweiser, we have a long-standing tradition of decorating our local breweries across this country during the holidays," said Ricardo Marques, vice president from Budweiser. "This season, we want to extend the holiday cheer with our limited-edition bottles and toast to a bright new year!"

Budweiser continues to lead the way in design and packaging innovation, with the past year giving life to some of the brand's boldest and most unique offerings. Starting in 2015 with the launch of the brand's new visual identity, Budweiser rolled out redesigned cans and bottles to reflect the detail exemplary of brewing America's No. 1 full-flavored lager.

In 2016, Budweiser took cues from  culture to inspire new packaging looks, leading to its boldest patriotic packaging move ever with the launch of the America can followed by the Torch bottle just in time for the Rio 2016 Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Budweiser's America packaging run ends this month, making way for the next season of Budweiser traditions, including the debut of holiday packaging. The limited-edition festive bottle will be available through the holiday season.

About Budweiser
Budweiser, an American-style lager, was introduced in 1876 when company founder Adolphus Busch set out to create the United States' first truly national beer brand – brewed to be universally popular and transcend regional tastes. Each batch of Budweiser stays true to the same family recipe used by five generations of Busch family brewmasters. Budweiser is a medium-bodied, flavorful, crisp and pure beer with blended layers of premium American and European hop aromas, brewed for the perfect balance of flavor and refreshment. Budweiser is made using time-honored methods including "kraeusening" for natural carbonation and Beechwood aging, which results in unparalleled balance and character.

DEERFIELD, IL--(Marketwired - Oct 29, 2015) - Basil Hayden's® Bourbon, a distinctive super-premium bourbon known for its trademark spicy finish, and Quoddy®, the Maine-based footwear brand with a century-old family tradition of shoemaking, have come together to create 100 limited edition gift sets for the upcoming holiday season, perfect for bourbon fans who appreciate handcrafted, American-made finds. The co-branded gift sets will be exclusively available for purchase beginning November 1 at the "Basil Hayden's Bourbon Holiday Shop" on Huckberry.com, an online curator and retailer of products that inspire active, adventurous and stylish lives.

"At Basil Hayden's, we make our bourbon in small batches, using a family recipe said to date back to 1796, to ensure our fans experience the highest quality product," said Halley Kehoe, Director, Small Batch Bourbons at Beam Suntory. "We are constantly on a mission to uncover brands that share the same values, which is why we teamed up with Quoddy -- a brand rooted in history and dedication to handcraftsmanship -- to create a premium gift set this holiday season that we hope bourbon and shoe fans alike will enjoy!"

The Basil Hayden's + Quoddy limited edition gift set brings to life what each brand is known for: American craftsmanship and style. Each gift set will feature four leather wrapped rocks glasses, artfully packaged in a handmade leather gift box. A pair of custom, made-to-order co-branded Basil Hayden's + Quoddy shoes will accompany each gift set, giving bourbon fans the opportunity to don their "drinking shoes" as they sip Basil Hayden's Bourbon.

Each pair of custom Basil Hayden's + Quoddy drinking shoes is made using hand-sewn Horween® leather -- the same leather used to wrap each rocks glass -- in a rich whiskey color and feature a co-branded insole and stylishly branded exterior. As one of the oldest running tanneries in America, founded in 1905, Horween offers an unparalleled blend of quality, consistency, responsiveness and innovation.

They're focused on doing things the right way -- not the easy way," said John Andreliunas, President of Quoddy. "The Basil Hayden's + Quoddy limited edition gift set is a testament to two brands that hold true to their roots and never give up on striving toward unrivaled craftsmanship and innovation. We think fans of great bourbon and great shoes will love receiving the gift set during the holidays!"

About the Company
It all started on a hot summer day when local farmers decided to establish the Brenham Creamery Company and make butter from excess cream brought in by area farmers. A few years later, the creamery began making ice cream and delivering it to neighbors by horse and wagon. It was in 1930 that the company changed its name to Blue Bell Creameries after the native Texas bluebell wildflower.

And although Blue Bell is only available in about 30% of the nation’s supermarkets, it ranks as one of the top three, best-selling ice creams in the country. Our products are sold in 23 states including: Alabama, Arizona, Florida, Georgia, Louisiana, Mississippi, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Texas, South Carolina and parts of Arkansas, Colorado, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, Tennessee, Virginia, and Wyoming. No matter how much the market grows, quality standards never change and are never diluted or compromised. That's why, people who are lucky enough to live where they can buy Blue Bell Ice Cream, say it's "the best ice cream in the country."
