Discover the premium Gin that Celebrates everything about the Côte d’Azur Lifestyle – Le Cap Soiree

Did you know the Côte d’Azur is acclaimed for it’s timeless glamour with over 300 days of sunshine a year which boast the most iconic coastlines in the world. It makes me think of Hotel du Cap Eden Roc. Imagine this – where you can plunge into the spirit of the French Riviera through the taste of Cap Gin.

 

As far as I know, Cap Gin is made on the shores of the Mediterranean and the spirit of the Côte d’Azur reflects that of the glamorous stylish lifestyles lived in Cannes, Nice to Monaco.

Since lockdown happened in Britain amid the Covid 19 pandemic people are still reluctant to make vacation plans as only most recently restrictions are slowly being lifted with the opening of some hotels, bars and restaurants. I’d like to hear you’re thoughts on this or are you still in favor of entertaining at home to feel safe until this situation settles a bit.

CAP Gin Le Esprit de la Côte France

Although I’m still hesitant for making social plans, I support staying in and drinking can still be fun with great company with sumptuous cocktails to get you into the summer party spirit. I thought this period was very unusual to spend time at home with all major sporting events to music festivals cancelled it seems vacations abroad are nonexistent. So why not bring the Cote d’Azur Lifestyle to me instead.

The Distinct CAP Gin’s formulation was produced  in collaboration with Dr David Clutton PHD a former Technical Director at Diageo who also processed the distillation of Bombay Sapphire Gin.

This week I’m discovering and getting to know Cap Gin from the South of France that features botanicals inspired by the French Riviera with mimosa flowers, rose, and orange blossom sourced from the Provence region. Just for you guys at home, let’s get to know the Gin together and tell you what makes this brand new spirit so distinctly remarkable in taste. For me it does have the wow factor that appeals to Gin lovers alike. When the sample of the Cap Gin arrived the other day, I’m so very delighted to tell you more about it. So here’s what I was able to find out so far. Cap Gin is distilled and produced at the distillerie de Terres Rouge, Turrene in France to create the most classic and timeless cocktails

 

Cap Gin, the unique premium spirit from the Côte d’Azur has made it’s debut in The Spirits Business Gin Masters 2020, being awarded two gold medals.

It’s no surprise that in it’s first year of entering the awards, the Gin won across multiple categories. Experts judges on the panel have portrayed it as floral and luxurious applauding Cap Gin as the ‘IT’ drink this summer winning gold in both the premium and London Dry Categories shows its distinction for exclusivity.

Curious and what to know what’s in it? If you love the fresh feeling of summer then this ones defiantly up your street if you love all things citrusy. Throughout history citrus has formed an integral part of the Côte d’Azur from the prestige of Menton Lemon to Fleur d’Oranger used in the perfumeries of Grasse. Cap Gin contains all of these botanicals, fruit, spices, and herbs to create flavour that is derived from this iconic region. You’ll notice the flavorsome of coriander and juniper mixed just right with natural scents found here to create this premium French Gin.

Just a bit of background into CAP Gin which was created by it’s co founder’s Andrew Campbell, James Auld, Adam Payne three friends to embody the rich culture and diverse heritage of its residents with homage to the spirit of the Côte d’Azur. The port town of Antibes can considered as a major influence with its significance of historical culture to the alluring glitterati nightlife scene.

Even the bottle reflects the clear coastal waters of the Mediterranean brought to life as the go to lifestyle brand. When tasting the gin for yourself it gives you that feeling of being there in the moment or aspire to want to go there is the idea to sell you the Côte d’Azur lifestyle in a bottle. I do love the gin’s uniquely distilled floral finished with a delicate blend of citrus is lightly refreshing to portray the lifestyle of the South of France . I can’t imagine anything more perfect than to unwind this weekend with the refreshing taste of Cap Gin.

Daniel Jackson shot supermodel Christy Turlington and Calvin Klein creative directors Francisco Costa, Italo Zucchelli and Kevin Carrigan for WSJ. Magazine. No one rejects, dislikes, or avoids pleasure itself, because it is pleasure, but because those who do not know how to pursue pleasure rationally encounter consequences that are extremely painful.

Nor again is there anyone who loves or pursues or desires to obtain pain of itself, because it is pain…

As you may be aware from the proliferation of headlines that end in “…and the internet is very upset about it!” the Internet is constantly very upset about various things. Some of those things provoke quite understandable if not righteous upper. Other times though, the internet just seems bored and looking for something to kick around the ol’ Twitter echo chamber.

The world of fashion meanwhile has a long history of provoking, teasing, scandalizing, and, dare we say it, trolling. Actual scandal-worthy fashion moments aside, it is of little surprise then that occasionally otherwise inoffensive fashion items and objects get caught in the Twitter outrage cycle simply for existing. Would fashion really be doing it’s job in 2017 if it didn’t occasionally provoke such strong reactions online? We have little doubt that that was the point at least some of these designers (we’re looking at you Demna) were trying to make. Others maybe were perhaps just playing catch up on what they perceived as a trend.

Beauty has so many forms, and I think the most beautiful thing is confidence and loving yourself.

Fall decorating presents the opportunity to revel in luxury. Fabrics become more substantial, color palettes transition to rich hues, and just about every design decision for the season revolves around cultivating a cozy living environment. In an effort to help you make your space ideal for fall, a group of design tastemakers reveal the decor trends to expect in homes across the country this season, along with a few lessons you’ll want to consider.

 

 

Mike Rowe, host of Discovery Channel’s Dirty Jobs, entered into the world online fashion critic earlier this year when he discovered a pair of $425 jeans on sale at Nordstrom’s from the brand PRPS. He positioned them as another volley in “our country’s War on Work.” He continued, “They’re not even fashion. They’re a costume for wealthy people who see work as ironic – not iconic.” Fair point. Really though we were also a bit offended that DSquared2 already did the whole purposefully muddied jeans a few years ago. In fact, Gwen Stefani was spotted wearing the originals when she first started dating Blake Shelton. See, there are occasional situation in which a high fashion-meets-down home country boy aesthetic really is necessary.

How do you add intrigue to a minimal outfit? By clashing textures and skillfully blending high and low pieces. Jil Sander’s PVC trench is a trophy piece of the highest order; make it sing by pairing it with blue denim and a subtle slogan tee in clean white. Want to dial up the drama even more? Apply a liberal helping of spring’s most covetable accessories: a structural leather bag (Wandler’s Hortensia style is an instant classic); of-the-moment statement earrings courtesy of Alessandra Rich; and The Row’s envy-inducing stiletto boots.


Like exercise trends of earlier decades, it can feel like one more requirement         of womanhood

We get why people would be outraged from a certain view, but we also think at least some of these designers are in on the joke. Maybe the only question is what exactly the punchline is. Then again, when you think about it the entire world of high fashion is taking something mundane (clothing; we all have to wear it), and turning it into coveted and cutting-edge luxury items.

 

Life experience brings out different emotions and different perspectives on things. I just want to be constantly evolving.

People were absolutely astounded, at least in between that time that they read the Tweet or headline and when they actually go to the details, that Prada was selling a $150 “paper clip.” In reality, of course, it was a sterling silver money clip shaped like a paper clip (and when you really think about it, all clips really do the same thing). $150 is a lot for a paper clip, but it’s actually not that eye boggling when you look at other high-end money clips.
