A 'Cointreauversial' evening

It was a glamourous evening as Rukn Luthra, Managing Director, Remy Cointreau - India sub-continent and Gulf and celebrity hairstylist Adhuna Akhtar of BBLUNT, together hosted a gala evening in honour of Alfred Cointreau. Alfred is the 6th generation of the Cointreau family.

The 'Cointreauversial' evening on Alfred’s first visit to tinsel town witnessed a gathering of Mumbai’s who’s who sipping signature cocktails like 'One Night Stand' and 'Born Again' especially created by Mumbai’s own Dimi Lezinska, who took inspiration from Adhuna’s BBLUNT salons and their vivid and quirky creations. Guests also got the opportunity to style their cocktails at the garnish bar with the creative supervision of Alfred Cointreau.

“I take this opportunity to express my gratitude and show appreciation for the Indian culture. On my first visit to Mumbai, it is a privilege to share the rich history and legacy of the iconic Cointreau brand, its unique know-how, and its importance as the heart of the world’s best cocktails with the leading bartending professionals and guests from different walks of life", says Alfred.

Among those who graced the evening were Adhuna’s better half, Farhan Akhtar, Zoya Akhtar, Shabana Azmi, Dia Mirza, Aditi Gowitrikar, models Carol Gracias and Surily Joseph, Sam Ziza and Sujal Shah, Reshma Bombaywala and The Vault's Keshav Prakash, among others.
