The Night Flight Orchestra have announced the launch of a new wine and rum signature via their collaboration with Phantom Spirits.
The band’s ‘Rum Barrel Aged Aeromantic Riesling’ is limited to 160 bottles, and their ‘Midnight Flyer’ (champagne barrel-aged rum) is limited to 600 bottles.
Starting March 11, both products will be available on the band’s European tour, as well through bundles in the Mikkeller webshop.
Here’s a full statement from the band:
THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA are very excited and proud to announce our new collaboration with Phantom Spirits.
THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA have always had a thing for sparkling wine, and it’s also something that’s fueled our recording sessions and always plays a vital part in our Classic Hour ritual before entering the stage. Some of our epic moments on record have come to life while quaffing sparkling wine at 5 am. Phantom Spirits have listened to us, they’ve spent a lot of time soul searching and researching, and they have created a wonderful sparkling Riesling that will fuel many of our upcoming tours and recording sessions, and it’s also guaranteed to put you in the true THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA party mode, that transcendent experience that many people still believe is just a myth. But now, with the Aeromantic Riesling, you will all be able to feel it too.
And when that fizzling, bubbly feeling starts to fade, and you need something heavier, for those late night conversations that you never will forget, Phantom Spirits and The Night Flight Orchestra have developed the Midnight Flyer Rum. Imagine getting lost on a Carribean island with the lady or gentleman of your dreams, watching the sun rise as the smooth taste of Midnight Flyer Rum strokes your palate like a tropical breeze. And it tastes like foreplay, some say.
Mixen Lindberg from Phantom Spirits added:
Working with THE NIGHT FLIGHT ORCHESTRA has been an absolute pleasure. Besides being humble and kind people, they are as passionate as they come. From the initial thought process all the way up till the final end result, it’s been a whirlwind of ideas where we kept pushing the boundaries, the format, and the overall concept, making this the most decadent hybrid package of elevated liquids we’ve done so far.
As noted, The Night Flight Orchestra recently released their ‘Aeromantic’ LP through Nuclear Blast.
