Tequila Herradura along with Thrillist, celebrated the “Barrel Art Collection” competition, at Villain in Brooklyn. The Villain is a great event space which Herradura completely took advantage of that night. The place was full of colorful and amazing art work from all the talented artists who participated. Herradura not only provided great visuals but but equally great drinks.
One drink in particular was the 2014 Tequila Herradura Colección de la Casa, which features a limited time tequila from a scotch cask. During the event Herradura gave a toast to the Barrel collection and the artist with Scotch cask infused tequila. At the end, Phoenix Lindsey-Hall won $10,000 as first place prize, while Julien Gardair and Kate Fauvell won second and third place, receiving $3,000 and $1,000 respectively.
The event included the artist, influencers and media who enjoyed the artwork and crafted cocktails. Herradura, in support of the arts, donated $70,000 to Creative Capital, an organization that supports innovative and adventurous artists nationwide through funding, counsel and career development services.
Here’s a quote from the winner, Phoenix Lindsey-Hall:
“Winning this competition is definitely a game changer. It’s absolutely amazing, said Phoenix. “I am excited to have been recognized by a brand such as Herradura that is 145 years old and still manages to keep it fresh in supporting local artists.” The judges for the night had to base their decisions off on originality, creativity, overall quality and the inclusion of elements and values that represent Tequila Herradura.
