The collection of nine limited edition cocktails was unveiled.

MATT CHARLES x ROCHAMBEAU (Bombay)
I’m proud to present the NYFW: Men’s Cocktail Collection showcasing Bombay gins that I collaborated on with Laurence and Joshua of Rochambeau. The cocktails are fun, young and playful. They taste incredible, are versatile, and will go over with a lot of people. The boys are inspired by architecture, which is why I chose The Eero named after Architect Eero Saarinen, and picked a beautiful, striking color seen in the Gothic Summer, which they loved. I travel for a network show I am on all over the world so we had a lot in common in that respect. The G’d Up cocktail was also one of the boys’ favorite recipes and they simply thought the cocktail collection partnership was “G’ed Up”, so it was only fitting to keep that name! It’s a fun project and the boys are actually tremendous cocktail experts!” – Matthew Charles, Edition Hotel
