What inspired the collaboration of Drake x Brent Hocking?
Originally launched in 2016, Virginia Black was the outgrowth of a meeting between world-famous entertainer Drake and luxury liquor mogul Brent Hocking. Drake was looking to expand his brand into new terrain, and Hocking had previous experience working in the beverage space with his prior product DeLeón Tequila. After a couple of years of friendship and discussions, the two men realised that they could bring whiskey to a new audience, beyond traditional whiskey fans. The end product of Drake's new whiskey collaboration with Brent Hocking was Virginia Black; a personally selected collection of two, three, and four-year-old bourbon whiskey focused on a high-rye content and finished with a decadent profile.
