John Wardley, TWE Marketing Vice President, Americas, added: “Snoop Dogg, an entertainment and California icon, is the perfect partner for 19 Crimes Snoop Cali Red. Snoop embodies the spirit of 19 Crimes – rule breaking, culture creating and overcoming adversity. We are truly excited to partner with Snoop and welcome him to the 19 Crimes family.”
Snoop Dogg has form in the beverage sector: in 2018 he helped set the Guinness World Record for the largest paradise cocktail, at the BottleRock Napa Valley music festival. The drink contained 180 bottles of gin, 154 bottles of apricot brandy and 38 jugs of orange juice.
