Ford Media Lab was hired by Collectif 1806 and Rémy Cointreau to concept and create 1806 Magazine. FML developed the first two volumes, each focusing on a different city and revealing a photographic and journalistic cross-section of its cocktail culture. The project sought to pay homage to a community-at-large that thinks outside the glass, while also highlighting Rémy Cointreau’s values of terroir, people and time. Storyboard and writing by Rachel Ford, design and photography by Kyle Ford, and printed by Cocktail Kingdom.
1806 Magazine was a Top 4 Nominee for Tales of the Cocktail's 2018 Spirited Awards in the Best Cocktail & Spirits Publication category.
