As the global love for coffee booms, coffee lovers around the world are now enjoying their favourite drink from morning cup through to evening cocktail. And research shows that almost half of cocktail drinkers regularly choose flavoured cocktails including those mixed with coffee.

Tia Maria is leading the coffee cocktail trend with the Tia Maria + Coffee Project, giving coffee connoisseurs the opportunity to sip on innovative coffee cocktails thanks to recipes crafted by renowned mixologists and expert baristas. From the classic Espresso Martini, to new and innovative serves like the Tia Maria Popcorn Frappe, coffee cocktails have never been more in demand.

Tia Maria Brand Ambassador, Matteo Fabbris says; “There’s an increasing love for coffee cocktails, which can be seen at world-class bars in key cocktail cities, while artisan coffee houses are now serving cocktails through the night as a café nightlife culture continues to emerge. The bartender and barista play a very similar role so it’s no surprise we’ve brought the two together to drive this new coffee revolution.”

No other liqueur can make a coffee cocktail quite like Tia Maria, an exotic infusion of natural vanilla and the finest fresh Arabica coffee beans roasted to perfection, complemented with a touch of Jamaican rum. Tia Maria is made using a blend of 100% Arabica coffee, among the best in the world, providing strong character, a full-bodied taste, and a sweet tendency. The beans are expertly roasted, ground and left to macerate to produce this exceptional coffee liqueur.

Flavio Lasalandra, International Marketing Director at Tia Maria, adds; “With the taste for coffee at an all-time high, coffee cocktails have never been more popular and Tia Maria is certainly happy to be leading the charge. We’re urging all coffee lovers out there to unite and join us.”

Chambord-Media-Event-71.jpg

On Wednesday, 20 November 2018 Chambord® hosted an exclusive pamper party for celebs, A-listers and media at The  Bay in Camps Bay. And why? Well, #BECAUSENOREASON.

The guests were welcomed with the eye-catching Chambord® Royale served in a champagne flute. To highlight the delights of this premium black raspberry liqueur Chambord® also served the guests the Chambord® Margarita Coolers with Herradura, Chambord, lemonade and lime and a Chambord® Lemonade with Finlandia – ideal cocktails for the summer. 

Set under the palms of this seaside strip enhanced the quirky festivities of a sunny day draped in pink, with its gorgeous views over Camps Bay’s iconic beachfront, The Sandy B

Private Beach Club’s VIP lounge and pool deck was the perfect spot to compliment the refreshing summer appeal of this all-natrual rasperry liqueur.

Brown-Forman Brand Principal Chantal Canning added,; “Chambord® is a premium, all-natural black raspberry liqueur whereby every drop is produced at a traditional French chateau situated in the Loire Valley of France following many of the same traditional processes. Today, Chambord® continues to inspire versatile cocktail creations around the world and is considered decadent, flamboyant and a real treat to add to your glass of bubbly. As we like to say “pink your drink”. But you don’t need a special occasion to enjoy Chambord®. If you like it, drink it. Why. Because no reason. The Chambord® global mantra inspires women to live their best life however they choose to. C’est la vie.”

While the berry bliss of Chambord® inspired fruit and flowers galore, pampering for the day included nail and hair care pop-ups, make up specialists, beauty products and cool swimwear collections.

Pop-ups included On Trend, MaxiB Collection, Kokodakota, Beach Cult, Vilebrequin and Nvme Bikini, with activations by MUD make-up, Bianca Moore (hair) and Fox Box (nails & eyebrow threading).

Healing Earth and Chambord® provided beautiful gift bags.

DJ Anthea Scholtz provided beachy tropical house beats. Known for her broody techno, Anthea lightened the day with accessible vocal-driven mixes.

Salt and Pepper Catering’s canapés were rounded off with macaroons, a Chambord® dessert infusion and sorbet cones to cool off an exclusive, sun-kissed summer’s day.

Emcee Mamohau Seseane from KFM 95.5 summed up Chambord® Royale: “Its perfection in a glass. Add some Champagne to your Chambord® and have a real sensory experience.”

Sponsors for the Chambord® Royale day were Happy Culture, San Pellegrino, Acqua Panna and One Juice.

Chambord® is a versatile, all natural, black raspberry liqueur with French royal provenance that can be enjoyed in a number of delicious cocktails.

An infusion of the world’s finest raspberries and blackberries, blended with the exotic flavours of black currant, Madagascan vanilla and aged XO cognac, the drink was inspired by raspberry liqueur made in the Loire Valley in the late 1600s - said to have been introduced to Louis XIV during one of his visits to the Château de Chambord. 

Chambord® is available at leading retail stores at R259
