New Orleans resident and writer Chris Rose is well known for his direct poetic descriptions of the city we love. “We dance even if there’s no radio. We drink at funerals. We talk too much and laugh too loud and live too large, and, frankly, we’re suspicious of others who don’t.”
New Orleans is more than a city. She’s a way of life. A visceral and enduring experience. And for those of us lucky enough to have lived here and loved her, she holds a place in our hearts that no other place can ever fill.
For 300 years, this beautiful mess of a city has provided her dedicated citizens and guests with the crème de la crème of food, music, cocktails, culture and artistry. New Orleans is more than just the mouth of the Mississippi. New Orleans is the birthplace of jazz. The inventor of the cocktail. The epicenter of culinary ventures. A complex place tolerant of ideas, beliefs, artistry and innovation. The authentic city that Charles Kuralt called, “the unique American place.”, that celebrates culture and takes the ordinary, and makes it extraordinary.
This is where Bolden Vodka is made. Our gift to New Orleans, and the world. A spirit that will redefine American Vodka, made from real grain, never from rectified spirits (NGS), and stand the test of time and be a beacon of the quality of spirit New Orleans and the world deserves.
And just possibly, help the world understand what it means to miss New Orleans.
