A Night of D’USSE at Red

Posted by Mary Jo Almeida-Shore On October - 31 - 2018

On Wednesday September 12, Miami Socialholic had the chance to meet with D’USSE Cognac’s Cellar Master, Michel Casavecchia, at Red the Steakhouse, while he was visiting Miami from Cognac, France. D’USSE Cognac is a byproduct of a partnership between Shawn “Jay-Z” Carter and Bacardi Limited and while Jay-Z leads global strategy for the brand, it is also Michel’s unrelenting commitment to creating D’USSE’s bold, unique flavor that has made the drink a universal sensation. So, we had the opportunity to sit down with Michel and find out exactly how we can “drink like Jay-Z and other VIPs.”

D’USSE is known for its large celebrity fan club that includes A-list names like Kevin Hart, Rihanna, Nick Jonas, Romeo Santos and Meek Mill and was integrated into every stop of Jay-Z and Beyoncé’s On the Run II tour. Below is a customized cocktail recipe that was featured in the D’USSE Lounge during each stop of the On the Run II tour.
