Why I Like Monkey Rum
I have known Ian Crystal since 2002 when he first started his career in the beverage industry working for me at The Coca-Cola Company. During our time at Coke and throughout the last 14 years, I have acted as a mentor to him where he has continued to demonstrate the traits of a successful entrepreneur; drive and passion, industry experience, and strategic insights in product / marketing strategy. When evaluating a new business, the right management team is of paramount importance. In the case of Monkey Rum and Evolution Spirits, Ian's leadership and track record make the company an attractive early stage investment investment. His history leading brands like ABSOLUT Vodka and Malibu Rum will be invaluable as he grows Monkey Rum into a national player.
by Zane Lamprey INTRODUCTION | The other day I got really lucky, for two quite unrelated reasons (no, not that reason, all you wise guys out there!) First, because I got a chance to visit the fun and magical city of New Orleans, a place that I hadn't seen in many years, but after seeing it once again, I promise I'll never make that mistake again.
It must happen to all of us. Zane Lamprey got so tired of drinking spirits that he figured he should just make his own. The result of that ennui with the drinking world is Monkey Rum (named for Lamprey's stuffed monkey that is omnipresent on his televised boozing adventures), which is available in both Spiced and Coconut expressions.
Classed as one of the top branding and design agencies in the UK, Identica is turning heads with its eye-catching and sophisticated packaging designs. Whilst J20, Monkey Rum and Drench are some of the team's previous clients, one of their most iconic projects was the redesign of Johnnie Walker's striding man.
Once again it is time to celebrate the spirit that's manufactured, distilled, and made long before any other, we're talking about Rum of course. This Sunday, August 16th, a day we rum enthusiasts will surely celebrate, is National Rum Day. What better way to commemorate this revered day than with some delicious and refreshingly decadent rum based cocktail recipes.
Here, National Geographic TV host of "CHUG" and spirits connoisseur Zane Lamprey shares his Monkey Rum. Monkey is the perfect addition to your summer fun and holiday celebrations. Offered in two flavors, Monkey Spiced and Monkey Rum with Toasted Coconut, the deliciously smooth spirit captures Lamprey's spirit of adventure, making the perfect summer drink.
Happy National Rum Day from Zane Lamprey's Monkey Rum With National Rum Day only days away on August 16th, I thought people would be interested in some fun recipe ideas from National Geographic TV host of "CHUG" and spirits connoisseur Zane Lamprey's "Monkey Rum"!
Zane Lamprey (of "Three Sheets" fame) and I (of little fame) both attended the same high school. However, we only met a few years ago at a Tales of the Cocktail convention in New Orleans. Actually, I've met a lot of people from the Syracuse area in NOLA.
18th June, 2015 by Amy Hopkins Lamprey, who has hosted a number of TV exploring drinking cultures in different countries, including Drinking Made Easy and Chug, first unveiled the rum range last year. Following the initial seed launch on Kickstarter, his Monkey Rum with Toasted Coconut and Monkey Spiced Rum are now available in New Jersey, California and Florida.
Monkey Rum Launches a Real & Virtual World Quest to Find the Monkey logo in Music Videos, Bars, Liquor Stores. _______________________________ Monkey Rum, the new rum from international television star and drink aficionado Zane Lamprey, announced today the #FindTheMonkey campaign.
May 22, 2015 /PRNewswire/ -- Monkey Rum, the new premium rum from international television star and drink aficionado Zane Lamprey , announced today the #FindTheMonkey campaign. Consumers are challenged to find Monkey Rum's fabled Monkey icon hiding in pop culture environments around the country this summer, in both real and virtual worlds.
Zane Lamprey may have the coolest job in the world. As host of National Geographic's Chug and Spike's Three Sheets, the actor/writer/professional booze hound travels the world's bars. All those distillery tours, cocktails, and talks with bartenders rubbed off on Lamprey, because the television host has graduated from drinking rum...
International Television Star Zane Lamprey of National Geographic's world-cocktail culture show "CHUG," announced today the Florida launch of his own spirit, Monkey Rum. Beginning this week, the two Monkey Rum offerings; "Monkey Rum with Toasted Coconut" and "Monkey Spiced Rum" will arrive in bars, restaurants and stores across the sunshine state.
It's an obligatory test for any rum: how does it taste neat? But the neat test applies particularly well to flavoured rums: it's the best way to really see what such a rum is made of - even if you'd never otherwise drink it without a mixer.
It's time to gird up for yet another "National Whatever Day" - but we won't hold the onslaught of made-up holidays against National Rum Day - Sunday, Aug. 16 - because rum cocktails are just too much fun. (Not to mention perfect drinking in our climate, especially this time of year.)
Zane Lamprey, who has made a career out of traveling and drinking as the host of shows like Three Sheets and Drinking Made Easy, had an idea for a new series: It would be called Chug, and it would follow him around the world as he explored the greatest drinking destinations, learning about the customs and culture of each place along the way.
If there's a competition for most enviable person on the planet, Zane Lamprey might be one of the favorites to win. For the better part of a decade, his job has entailed two basic charges: travel and drink.
The title pretty much says it all. Zane Lamprey is what I refer to as a connoisseur of booze. The guy literally gets paid to travel and drink. Sounds like a pretty sweet gig to me, and after chatting with him, I quickly learned he felt the same way.
