Our Classic & Vintage Artisanal Spirits producer, Diplomatico Rum, was featured at in an article about Pitbull’s fancy cocktail at Strip House by Susan Stapleton in Las Vegas EATER. Read below:
“Rapper Pitbull returns to Las Vegas with his second resident show, and now Mr. 305 has his own cocktail so he “Don’t Stop the Party.”
Strip House at Planet Hollywood Resort, where the Miami-based rapper performs limited dates through March 26, now has the 305 Cocktail made in honor of the “Bon Bon” singer’s show.
The 305 Cocktail features Diplomático Ambassador Rum, aged in white oak barrels for 12 years then an additional two years in Pedro Ximénez sherry casks, along with Carpano Antica Vermouth and orange bitters.
Strip House’s corporate beverage director Richard Breitkreutz says the rum is made by hand in copper pots in Venezuela and sports “aromas of port wine, cigar box, dried fruits and candies as well as complex notes of raisin, nutmeg and cinnamon.”
And much like the bigger-than-life singer, the cocktail comes with a hefty price tag. Diners can drink like Pitbull for $305.
Pitbull returns to the Axis Theater March 16, 18, 19, 23, 25 and 26. The cocktail is only served on nights of the show. No word on whether the “Krazy” singer has sampled his drink.”
