FML x Collectif 1806

Collectif 1806 is an international cocktail initiative comprised of like-minded individuals, inspired by the profound idea that the intentional mixture of fiery spirits can be tempered into something greater than its respective parts. These are individuals who cannot be defined by any one thing. They stir our spirits by pouring a mixed perspective. Their prescriptions reveal new found convictions; They are the catalysts of formative conversations. They change the world by always refining what is given.

Ford Media Lab collaborated with Collectif 1806 to create the bi-annual 1806 Magazine. Each volume focuses on a different city and reveals a photographic and journalistic cross-section of its cocktail culture. By sharing a snapshot of unique individuals and their settings, we hope to pay homage to a community-at-large that thinks outside the glass – the bold few who were called to the bar to shake up the status quo.

Volume 1: New York City and Volume 2: New Orleans are available in our store.
