ZACAPA 23 AND DUNCAN QUINN
PRESENT THE CASK CHRONICLES
The Cask Chronicles is a collaboration between
high-end menswear designer Duncan Quinn and
barrel-aged spirit Zacapa 23. Launched in NYC,
The Cask Chronicles is a customized vintage
double-decker bus that is making its way cross
country. By day, the bus is a pop-up men’s tai-
loring boutique; and by night it transforms into
a multi-course dining experience matched with
Zacapa cocktails.
