Havana Club et Frenna - collaboration exclusive "A Toast To The Culture"

A TOAST TO THE CULTURE

Success is often attributed to the artist himself, but Frenna knows better than anyone that his success has been a process of setbacks, patience, hard work and teamwork. The support he received from his community, friends and family, combined with his passion for the hip-hop culture are the foundation of Frenna’s success.

His Ghanaian roots have always been a major influence on his musical development, upbringing and the value he places on family and friends. This cultural influence and the sense of family that the people around him give him are also important values that he grew up with in the Schilderswijk in The Hague. There, as a child and teenager, he was shaped by everything he saw and experienced in the neighbourhood, and it was there that he developed his work ethic, which has enabled him to realise his dreams.

Havana Club and Frenna believe in the value and importance of creating together and therefore selected six creatives and guided them through mentoring sessions where knowledge and creative ideas were shared. Inspiring each other and sharing creativity were the most important pillars of the process.

The limited edition bottle of Havana Club Rum will be available from April 1st in the Netherlands and Belgium at Gall & Gall, Drankdozijn and Belgian sneakerstores DNA et DeMakers Gallery.

The connection that is generated at a party has something unique, it’s difficult to explain. As they say in Cuba, music says all the things that words can’t say… and that’s why the Bad Gyal x Havana Club collaboration was born, materialising in a special edition designed by the artist herself, combining her urban touch with Cuban rum.

Both Bad Gyal and Havana Club have always been committed to achieving a quality result with an authentic style. Aspirations that have been realised in this exclusive collaboration, with details such as the dripping gold on the upper part of the label and the neon pink ink to celebrate the energy that is generated at parties.

RUM OF SKEPTA

ROS - Rum of Skepta bottle

Collab

Havana Club and international musical icon Skepta are proud to announce the next chapter of their global collaboration, a limited-edition rum, Rum of Skepta. Following the creation of two unique Havana Club 7 Rum bottles in summer 2020 and 2021, which drew inspiration from the entwined roots of the brand’s Cuban birthplace and Skepta’s own Nigerian heritage, Rum of Skepta is the pinnacle of a journey which has paid ode to creative impulses, inner strength and the power of community.

RUM OF SKEPTA

RUM OF SKEPTA

Created by Skepta himself alongside Maestro Ronero Asbel Morales in Cuba, during a visit in early 2020, the transporting blend reflects this mood, with a round, balanced flavour profile, subtle on the palate. It is the result of an exceptional meeting of those at the top of their respective fields, and continues a proud tradition of rum creation in the country, something richly embedded in Cuban culture.

A NEW CHAPTER

The collaboration between Havana Club and Skepta began in 2019, when Skepta first visited Havana, Cuba. Struck by deep and entwined links between Cuban traditions and those of his own West African Yoruba heritage through paths of migration, the first two chapters of the collaboration – a pair of redesigned Havana Club 7 Rum bottles – captured this cultural infusion in their labels, which featured traditional Nigerian symbols. The maturation of the collaboration – and an accumulation of the previous chapters of the project – Rum of Skepta was made to encapsulate a feeling of refined elegance, a symbolic emblem of growth, achievement and luxury.

The Collection

The collaboration between the artist, his fashion brand Pigalle Paris and Havana Club pays tribute to Stéphane’s days in Cuba, which in his own words “have changed his life”. It aims to celebrate togetherness, building upon common values: strong commitment towards local communities and constant advocacy for diversity and inclusivity.

Stéphane Ashpool has always been inspired by the world of music and rhythm. From his very first block parties and late-night jam sessions thrown in the top stories of Paris hotels to his acclaimed Pigalle runway shows, it is clear that music, colors & a powerful sense of community have always served as the cultural cornerstones that have supported Ashpool’s vibrant creative career.

Visiting Cuba for the first time, Stéphane was quite naturally captivated by Havana’s local music & dancing scene and the effervescent energy of its people. This vibrant world, fueled by the warming taste of Havana Club rum, resonated with Stéphane’s own story. After all, his mother was a professional dancer, and growing up in Paris Stéphane was always surrounded by many different cultures and rhythms. For him, Cuba felt like a celebration of both his past and present, and that’s how he spent the next few days: meeting and bonding with local communities, savouring their way of life.
