The Triad Collective

"My Ketel One serve is a reflection of what truly matters in my life: Music, Family & Sustainability.

One of the best parts of my day is playing music with my daughter, in a band we've created together called "Smiles" which regularly performs in bars & restaurants around the city. Inspired by the joy she has found in music, I've created a Ketel One serve (and a spirit-free option) which is being sold in several restaurants throughout Toronto, and will directly help aspiring musicians by fundraising to help them purchase new instruments and equipment, as well as provide awareness of new and upcoming talent in the community.

This initiative is also partnered with the Junos, the famous Canadian Music Award program, which will provide substantial visibility.

The Triad Collective is heavily inspired by the zero waste philosophy we currently execute at my small cocktail bar, Mother. Ketel One is blended with a housemade kombucha made from an upcycled product that is blended with spent herb and citrus trimmings, then augmented with plum wine and infused with Local Canadian Cedar. The drink is then garnished with a brush of lacto-Canadian grapes which I reduce into an "edible paint". 

Mother, Junos and Ketel One Vodka have incredible things in common, caring for the future of our global family; so, inspired by art, music, and family, I present The Triad Collective.
