Crown Royal Honors Black Music With Unityfest

As the nation was at an inflection point in culture last Summer, Crown Royal Regal Apple launched a project to fill media spaces with the work of some of today’s most impactful Black artists, giving everyone access to art that inspires necessary change. In a testament to culture, Crown Apple used their voice to support by capturing the work of four street artists to cement these impermanent works as everlasting stories by celebrating their imaging of resistance and beauty.

This month, in honor of Black Music Appreciation Month and Juneteenth Unityfest, Crown Royal Regal Apple continued their mission to amplify Black artists in partnership with singer and songwriter, Lucky Daye.

Last week, the Juneteenth Unityfest brought together people of all backgrounds for a day to commemorate Juneteenth and Black culture, with music performances, storytelling, inspiring remarks and more. With his own personal connection to the arts, Lucky Daye performed during Unityfest and honored the works of Crown Royal’s Black Art Preservation Project. Click here for more on it.

There’s something new dropping this fall and it’s ripe for the taking. Captain Morgan is hitting the shelves with Captain Morgan Sliced Apple Spiced Rum – something brand new that’s sure to shake up the rum category as a spirit that is so delicious it can easily be enjoyed neat or on the rocks.

There’s more fun to be had with this twist on a classic – we took the flavor of our signature Original Spiced Rum, added a subtle hint of ginger and fused it all together with the deliciously juicy and crisp taste of fresh cut apples.

In their own unique, signature styles, each artist’s mural showcases some of the diverse flavors, people, art and sounds that make up the irresistible spirits of the communities that Captain Morgan Sliced Apple is out to celebrate.
