Crown Royal Introduces First Rye Whisky: Harvest Rye


Crown Royal introduces a first in its history: a blended rye whiskey called Crown Royal Harvest Rye.

The new offering combines the richness of Northern harvest rye grains with with smoothness of Crown Royal to create a perfectly balanced whisky.

The distinct Canadian climate provides the ideal conditions for growing rye grains. This is due to the fact the grains are planted in the fall, then blanketed with snow during the harsh winter months and only finish their growth cycle once they have sprouted throughout spring and summer. The extra time the grains take to fully mature results in flavorful hints of fruit, cloves and spice.

Crown Royal Northern Harvest Rye is available at 90 proof, and sold at $29.99 for a 750 mL bottle.

Additionally, the spirits brand expand its highly sought after Crown Royal Hand Selected Barrel whisky program to select markets, which allows retailers to purchase an entire barrel of whisky, featuring the distinct Coffey Rye.. Source: Baller Status

Footwear Designer, Olka Osadzińska, Imagines Impossible but Amazing Sneaker Collaborations



Olka Osadzińska is a footwear illustrator from Russia who has two signature Reebok shoes under her belt, with a third coming up. She is also an art director and curator, with her work shown at MoMA Warsaw and in Berlin and Tokyo. This time around, she was inspired by the recently announced and unexpected Hello Kitty x Yohji Yamamoto collaboration, teaming up with Lyst to imagine some fantasy sneaker collaborations herself. The results are stunning and creative, with sneakers we wish were real. Using some of Lyst’s top selling sneakers, the artist paired them up with some of pop culture’s most influential pillars. An iconic pair of New Balances are clad in LEGO pieces, while the Nike Dunk Hi silhouette rocks a Jurassic Park-inspired print. A pair of  Saint Laurent sneakers are inspired by New York City’s Studio 54 resulting in angel-winged white roller blades and gold accents. Balenciaga’s high top shoes pay homage to Jeff Koons, and lastly, white Giuseppe Zanottis don gold hardware and feline features in an ode to Karl Lagerfeld’s cat, Choupette. – Source: HYPEBEAST

Snoop Dogg Watches HBO’s ‘Game of Thrones’ for “Historic Reasons”


As HBO’s most-watched show ever, Game of Thrones entertains millions of viewers around the globe with intriguing fantasy storytelling. One devoted fan, however, might have a slightly twisted look at the series. In a recent interview with the New York Post, Snoop Dogg revealed himself as a huge fan of the hit HBO show, explaining that he watches it “for historic reasons.” Yes, exactly.

Judging from your contribution to the Season 5 Game of Thrones mixtape, it seems as though you’re a big fanboy.

Most definitely. When they asked me to do the track, I was more than honored because I’m truly a fan of the show. I would have done it for free, but they gave me some money on top of it, so I was like, “F - - k it, let’s do it!” I watch it for historic reasons, to try to understand what this world was based on before I got here. I like to know how we got from there, to here, and the similarities between then and now.

Interviewer Hardeep Phull then asked Snoop to clarify his answer while emphasizing that Game of Thrones is a fictional television show, he responded:

Um, OK. So what parallels have you drawn between this fictional TV show, and the modern world?

That kings still rule and a bitch f - - ked everything up, in every situation!

Hmmm. I see.
