Remy Martin is back with a bang! Following the release of Volume 1 of Remy Martin’s mixtape-inspired VSOP bottle, Remy returns with the long-awaited Volume 2! Designed with the 80’s in mind, Volume 2’s look will definitely illicit feelings of nostalgia. For this campaign Remy Martin enlisted the help of 3 legendary DJs to create playlists dedicated to their home towns. “In the playlists, DJ Suss One from New York, DJ Meel from Los Angeles and DJ Jamal Smallz from Chicago feature music of renowned artists who played an impactful role in the evolution of hip-hop sound and mixtape culture in the 80’s.” The new bottle is available online at Reserve Bar for $80 and with the purchase of Volume 2 you’ll receive a QR code on the top of the bottle’s packaging which leads to the unique playlists curated by these iconic DJs. We thought it would be fun to pair each playlist with a signature Remy Cocktail, check out our suggested pairings below and don’t forget to try Volume 2!
