Premium French wine brand, Luc Belaire has collaborated with music sensation Diamond Platnumz on a cocktail video and exclusive recipe for fans.

The video is a creative collaboration between Diamond and Belaire, fusing the artist’s love of cocktails with his natural flair for performance.  

The video follows Diamond as he enters a club, greeting the barman before proceeding to take the bartending into his own hands. 

Apart from showing his moves behind the bar, he has also created a special cocktail recipe for use with either of his favourite Belaire bottles, Belaire Luxe and Belaire Luxe Rose.

Diamond says he is drawn to the creativity of cocktails and he has always had a natural flair for performance.

“I picked up a few tips from the professional we worked with and I’m definitely going to try some moves the next time I’m partying. 

My go-to bottles are Belaire Luxe and Belaire Luxe Rose. I like a sweet, fragrant cocktail with that extra touch of luxury that Belaire adds, he says.
