Lot18 and AMC Launch New “The Walking Dead” Wine Collection

TWD-trio

Just in time for the highly anticipated new season of “The Walking Dead”, Wine lovers and fans of the worldwide hit television series “The Walking Dead” can now order “The Walking Dead” Wine Collection from Lot18 in partnership with AMC.

With a limited number of each specially created bottle available, these wines can be purchased exclusively at Lot18.com/TheWalkingDead while supplies last. The individually selected wines were carefully crafted by the team at Lot18 to highlight their shared characteristics with the beloved characters Rick Grimes, Daryl Dixon, and the villainous Negan.

Based on the comic book series written by Robert Kirkman and published by Image Comics, “The Walking Dead” reigns as television’s most watched drama for adults 18-49. “The Walking Dead” tells the story of the months and years that follow a zombie apocalypse, and follows a group of survivors, led by police officer Rick Grimes, who travel in search of a safe and secure home.

The series is executive produced by showrunner Scott M. Gimple, Robert Kirkman, Gale Anne Hurd, David Alpert, Greg Nicotero and Tom Luse. “The Walking Dead” is currently in its eighth season airing Sunday nights on AMC.

The inspiration behind the wines are as follows:

Rick Grimes – 2016 California Petite Sirah
Whether he’s fighting off a herd of walkers or rallying communities to defend against the Saviors, Rick Grimes is undoubtedly the leader of the group, just as this Petite Sirah would command the attention of anyone who tastes it. Like Rick, this red is a true crowd pleaser – bold, dark and balanced, exhibiting a notable tension between the bright acidity and firm, tannic structure. You’ll realize with just one sip that his is a wine that’ll never let you down.

Daryl Dixon – 2016 California Cabernet Sauvignon
Resourceful, fearless and capable of handling both the dead and the living, Daryl Dixon is a loner man of few words, but his loyalty to the group is immediately apparent to anyone he encounters. This California Cabernet Sauvignon is similarly reliable, showing depth and an attractive core of ripe black fruits, intermingled with savory nuances of coffee bean and dried herbs. Like Daryl’s crossbow, this is a wine you can count on to always hit the mark.

Negan – California Bourbon Barrel Red Blend
Negan is the man we all love to hate, but you have to respect his uncompromising style. This red blend is also brawny and bold, creating devotees with its robust, extracted flavors of vanilla, dark chocolate and caramel. A portion of the wine was bourbon barrel aged for three months. Composed of 73% Merlots, 18% Zinfandel and 9% Petite Sirah, this is a wine that packs a punch harder than Lucille’s, compelling you through the apocalypse and beyond.

 

Mumm House unveils the secrets of Usain Bolt’s success

Usain Bolt proved that his incredible talents go far beyond being the fastest man on the planet when he was appointed the new ‘CEO’ of Maison Mumm last year.  Maison Mumm released a new video, in which new CEO Usain Bolt passes on his personal tips for coming out a winner.

As Mumm’s Chief Entertainment Officer for the past year, Usain has inspired the world with his positive mindset by creating daring celebrations with a distinctive Mumm touch. This bold new production shows him revealing an unexpectedly intimate side, in a series of slickly choreographed routines worthy of a professional dancer.

For the first time ever, the video shows an elite athlete raising the curtain on the secrets to his success. Usain Bolt radiates a winning attitude before even hitting the starting blocks, and his personal method defies convention: “Don’t win to celebrate, celebrate to win.” That message establishes Mumm as a Maison with a strong point of view and a mindset focused on panache and positive thinking: in short, a true icon of victory and celebration.

Mumm’s distinctive bottle is the ultimate expression of victory celebrations and a tribute to the achievements of sportsmen everywhere. The video is a new chapter in the daring history of the Maison Mumm. Edgy and unconventional, the film – directed by the talented Luis Cervero (having worked for Pharell Williams, Justice, etc.) – features the athlete and the former Jamaican Miss Universe contestant Yendi Philipps in an up-to-the-minute expression of Maison Mumm’s signature values of Dare. Win. Celebrate.
