ACARDÍ HAS TEAMED UP WITH PHOTOGRAPHER CAM KIRK TO CREATE AN ORIGINAL DIGITAL MASTERPIECE INSPIRED BY THE NEW RESERVA OCHO SHERRY CASK FINISH.
BACARDÍ is expanding its Premium line of rums with the launch of a limited-edition Reserva Ocho Sherry Cask Finish series. Each of the Premium rums from the BACARDÍ Reserva Cask Finish series will begin with a base of BACARDÍ Reserva Ocho aged under the Caribbean sun, and then finished for several additional months in a unique barrel that will change year to year. The finishing process increases the complexity of the spirit, adding subtle flavor notes and textures, resulting in a truly luxurious tasting experience.
To celebrate the occasion, photographer Cam Kirk will unveil an original, innovative digital art piece that will go up for blind auction as an NFT (non-fungible token). While NFTs are typically bought and sold on cryptocurrency-based galleries and marketplaces, you don't have to own cryptocurrency, or even know much about it, to participate. Simply bid on the NFT when it drops, and BACARDÍ will handle the rest for the winning bid and buyer*.
Proceeds from the NFT sale will directly benefit the brand's “Backing the B.A.R.” initiative with the NAACP. The initiative provides business acceleration grants, education, support, and entrepreneurship solutions for Black-owned bars, restaurants, nightclubs, lounges, liquor stores, and small businesses in the process of applying for a liquor license.
Cam Kirk has produced work for Nike, Beats by Dre, New Era Caps, Atlantic Records, Epic Records, Interscope Records, Gucci Mane, T.I., Migos, 21 Savage, Lil Yachty, Metro Boomin, Rae Sremmurd, 2 Chainz, Future, Young Thug, Zaytoven and many more. Known for his candid and raw style of photography, Cam Kirk’s work has been recognized and published in Forbes, Rolling Stone Magazine, Hypebeast, Vice Magazine, SSENSE, Fader Magazine, Complex Magazine, XXL Magazine, ESPN, Pitchfork, New York Times and more.
*Open to bidding and purchase by U.S. residents ages 21 and older.
