Post Malone, Maison No. 9
While many wouldn’t expect rosé to be a rapper’s drink of choice, it turns out Post Malone is quite the wine connoisseur. Named Maison No.9 after his favourite tarot card, the Nine of Swords, the wine was created in collaboration with his long-time manager Dre London and friend James Morrissey. The salmon pink drink is housed in a tall, slender glass vessel that comes etched with the brand’s name in a white gothic font. In place of a cork, is a luxurious glass stopper cap with raised edges, meant to mirror a castle located near the vineyard where the grapes are grown, and intended to encourage people to reuse the bottle.
