Intro Statement to Booze
Rodrigo Bellot, our Bolivian casting director on CHE, gave me some Singani while we were shooting and I completely flipped over it, as did the rest of the camera department (operator Gary Jay: Steeeevn, you gotta get this shit into the U.S...). Casa Real, the parent company, agreed to give me a special designation that only I can sell (hence, Singani 63), and a mere five years later (don't even ask), I've got the stuff in a warehouse in Florida. I'm in the process of obtaining a distributor
because I can't sell it until I have one, and when I do you'll be able to either buy it from them or they can tell you where to buy it, or something (I can't sell it on the website because of all the legal shit). My grass roots campaign so far consists of one piece of print and one video, both of which are here on the site. I drink the stuff on the rocks because there's no burn and it has a very subtle, pleasant flavor, but I'm sure you can mix it. But watch out: you can knock the stuff back like water and before you know it,
you're fucking invisible. And it never gives me a hangover. It's possible that its unique qualities are a result of being distilled at like 15 thousand feet, but that's just a theory (there is a 20 thousand acre area in Bolivia where Singani is made; if it's not distilled there, you can't call it Singani. Kind of like the thing with champagne and France). I don't know that I will ever be competing with Sean Combs' product for sales, but I just like the stuff and thought it would be fun to try and get it here.
