    FINAL Wet Your Whistle Episode - Don't yuck my rum - Zacapa!

    in Lifestyle

    Sadly, all good things must come to an end.  Yet what better way to bring our Fall “Wet Your Whistle” series to a close than with the Brand Ambassador of the premier rum company, Zacapa!  On Wednesday, December 17th at noon Lynnette Marrero will introduce us to the first rum to be inducted into the International Rum Festival’s Hall of Fame.


    This honor may have something to do with the fact that Zacapa is aged in “The House Above the Clouds,” a facility 7,544 feet above sea level in the highlands of Guatemala.  The naturally thinner air and lower atmospheric pressure of this unique location intensifies the infusion of flavors into the barrels.  This is not the only thing that makes Zacapa’s creation process surprisingly unique.  Instead of using traditional molasses as a base, Zacapa is made from concentrated first press of sugar cane, called virgin sugar cane honey, and a specialized strain of yeast extracted from pineapples.


    Clearly, there is nothing typical about the way in which this rum is made, nor in the way that it tastes.  Tune in this Wednesday to hear more about how this company has made their rum EXTRA-ordinary.

    The Event Jeannie has Bombay Sapphire's Gary Hayward LIVE in C&G's office 10/10!

    in Lifestyle

    This week we will not only be infused with imagination, but also with alcohol! We will be continuing our Fall “Wet Your Whistle” series on Wednesday, December 10th at noon LIVE from our offices with Colin Asare-Appiah.  The Bacardi Portfolio Master Mixologist will be whipping us up some innovative new cocktails, perhaps even some of the final contenders of Bombay’s “The World’s Most Imaginative Bartender” competition.


    It should come as no surprise that the company whose namesake is a 182 carat sapphire entitled the Star of Bombay enjoys crowning the best bartenders in the world.  The real gem of the company, however, is their brand new distillery, Laverstoke.  Designed by multiple award winning designer, Thomas Heatherwick, the distillery boasts a BREEAM award for sustainability and two stunning, intertwining botanical glasshouses.  These glasshouses are meant to maintain two separate climates, one tropical and one temperate to foster the ten botanicals from around the world infused into every bottle of Bombay.  If we are lucky, maybe Gary will reveal if the rumor about these gin botanicals making people angry is true, or a complete hoax.


    So get your shakers ready.  If we can have martinis on a Wednesday afternoon then so can you!

    Interview with Meredith Shaw

    in Music

    “At 14 I booked myself into a studio and recorded a demo and it was sent to a producer in Nashville. He liked it and I flew back and forth to Nashville a few times. So Nashville was the very first place I ever made music in a studio,” Toronto's Meredith Shaw explains. “And I know I have come back to this place very naturally. Every moment of putting these new songs together has felt right. I just feel very at ease and at home.”


    Her passion for country music was rekindled over the past few years through writing trips back down to Nashville, working with The Stellas and Carolyn Dawn Johnson - among others. Meredith's debut country single is called Better Than This - a song she co-wrote.


    “For much of the past couple of years most of the people I was writing with, talking with, and dealing with on a regular basis were in country music. I know I am in the right place,” she said adding that she has always been drawn to female singers who not only had powerful voices but powerful personalities, regardless of their genre citing the likes of Linda Ronstadt, Emmylou Harris, Stevie Nicks, Trisha Yearwood, Martina McBride and fellow Canadians Shania Twain and CDJ as key role models.


    Songwriter/producer Jeff Johnson has been brought in to produce the music that will eventually become Meredith’s debut country music album. His track record with breakthrough acts like Wes Mack, and his writing credits with Dallas Smith, Madeline Merlo and Small Town Pistols impressed her.


    Meredith is the host of the top-rated weekend radio show in Toronto on boom 97.3, a model with a number of successful national campaigns to her name, a business owner of a gift and custom greeting card company, and a philanthropist who started the Girls Who Believe Festival to help girls and young women reach their fullest potential through affirmation and mentorship.

    Hybrid Jazz From Trish Hennessey - with Phenomenal Vocalist Alicia Olatuja!

    in Music

    One of the pivotal days in Alicia Olatuja's life happened just last year.  She had a memorable moment, singing at one of the BIG Inauguration events for the re-elected Barack Obama.  So stunning was her classically trained mezzo soprano voice that the buzz began IMMEDIATELY.  No less than Elizabeth Hasselbeck (formerly of "The View") praised her on the show as if she had never heard anyone sing before that day :)


    Well, the buzz has never STOPPED - and that's no exaggeration!  This beautiful St. Louis native - now based in New York - is writing her own ticket to stardom.  A vocal performance graduate of the Manhattan School of Music, Alicia gave her recital at Carnegie Hall.  And she debuted professionally as Sacagawea in a world premiere operetta.  


    Musical Theater and Opera have been great passions in our guest's life - but so has Jazz.  She and her husband, the fantastic bassist, Michael Olatuja, have their own band.  When you hear "The Olatuja Project", your receive the bliss of Alicia singing in a Yoruba or Shona dialect.  Please check out "The Promise" on CD.


    And the reason for Glorious Alicia's visit?  Her OTHER CD, "Timeless." :-D  When the most industrious promoter, Kari Gaffney, sent the album to yours truly, there was a lengthy ZONING during that day.  Little else got accomplished but listening to Alicia's voice.  If you've HEARD her, you know!  Michael is with her on this project - as well as another bassist that you might know: Christian McBride :)  And other noteworthy artists.


    But it's the world class Alicia Olatuja who is our focus on 12/2.  With the Brooklyn Tabernacle Choir since 2007, voice teacher, vocal producer, teaching artist at the neighborhood Arts Council - OH - and a composer, too!  So very impressive.  Please: hear for yourself!
