Alexandra Dorda has spent her entire life in the hospitality and spirits industry. Her family created and produces the much lauded Chopin Vodka. After a departure for academia and the finance industry, a healthy creative bug threw Alexandra back into the world of spirits. The resulting Kasama Rum is a homage to Alexandra's love and connection with the Philippines. A delicious rum with beautiful tropical notes, Kasama Rum launched right before the world changed with COVID, but now, the momentum is building back up as Alexandra travels the states sharing her beautiful spirit. We chat inspiration, art, and travel.
The world suffered a massive loss in April when the titan of life, Tomas Estes, passed. For those of you that had the opportunity to meet this larger than life soul, we have the stories and memories of being in his presence. A lover of life, agave, love, and art, Tomas' legacy will echo for decades to come. I offer a few parting words here and we revisit my favorite of the 2 interviews with the legend. We chat travel, choices, Tequila, and so much more.
