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

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.

Bishop Nast

 

Bishop Nast is a French street photographer known for empowering what is called the “Grand Paris” and its people through film photography.

During the lockdown, Bishop was struck by the emptiness of places where the neighbourhood usually likes to meet up and hang out. Bishop Nast wanted to capture the strange vibe of these uncertain times where people still find ways to link up with each other to enjoy a bit of conviviality.

HAVANA CLUB X RSF

Collab

Retrosuperfuture and Havana Club come together to celebrate Havana as an inspiration: the culture, the city and the acetate. Throughout a capsule collection and a series of e-events, we cheer to the arts and craftsmanship of today’s scene. From Havana: the city, the rum, the material, stretching globally throughout 5 cities: Milan, Berlin, Moscow, Shanghai and Havana, Cuba.

SEE ON INSTAGRAM >>>

RETROSUPERFUTURE

RETROSUPERFUTURE

The acetate known globally as “Havana” has forever been an icon in the eyewear world, its name comes from the particular pigments of Cuban tobacco leaves as they are drying to then become cigars. By creating an exclusive release of sunglasses, limited-edition bottle, long sleeve tee, and unique domino set in Havana acetate, the two brands unite cultural urban scenes globally.

Drag & Slide

THE TOUR

For each city of the tour, the two brands have selected one ambassador that represents organic growth in the local creative scene, thereby underlining their constant search for craftsmanship in today’s artistic culture. These ambassadors will team up with the Retrosuperfuture and Havana Club for a series of online talks with their fanbase to discuss their work and their process of creation: from inspiration to conception. After all, the inspiration from tobacco leaves gave the name “havana” to the acetate, and havana acetate, in turn, inspired the RSF / Havana Club collection.

INSPIRATION

Havana Club, Skepta and friends all connect over shared values and attitudes. At a time of global uncertainty and unrest this stands firm now more than ever, with communities – both local and global – coming together to share collective ideas, visions, and discoveries from afar.

Skepta drew upon this sense of discovery and community when he visited Cuba in 2019. In Havana, the international grime icon and Nigerian Yoruba chief found deep links between Yoruba culture and Afro-Cuban spirit. Yoruba heritage is infused throughout Cuban traditions with its links to the West African people and is experienced in the joyful energy and DIY spirit of Cuba which brings people together. It is a creative essence that Skepta also sees reflected in his own London community.

Together, this brought Skepta to the Cuban concept of ACHÉ; interpreted as the creative, universal spirit that binds all of us. It is aché which Skepta has channeled into his Havana Club 7 collaboration, with a bottle design symbolizing his vision of global community, brought to life through creativity, love, and cultural connections.

The new design features traditional Nigerian cultural symbols, including Ewe Oshun leaves used in Yoruba rituals, cowrie shells found in sacred statues of Elegua, as well as Guiro textiles and Conga drums. The bottle is dedicated to a global community of creative thinkers and doers – the people we raise toasts to the world over.
