As New York’s Fashion Week winded to a close, Fou-Dre vodka held its exclusive launch at midtown Manhattan 320 Studios. The all-natural, ultra premium vodka is the brainchild of founder and CEO Chanel Turner. The D.C. native founded Fou-Dre, which means lightning in french, in 2009 with her own investments making her the first African-American woman to be a proprietor of a vodka brand.
The celebration kicked off at nightfall. Invited guests of the exclusive invitation-only launch mingled with each other while sipping on signature cocktails. Patrons lined up as beautiful models poured shot after shot of Fou-Dre vodka at the top of an ice sculpture in the shape of a lightning bolt.
Eleet Mag had the opportunity to talk to 28-year-old Turner who talked about the eco-friendly ultra-premium vodka. The unique bottle, made in the shape of a lightning bolt, is made from 100% recycled glass and dyed and labeled with 100% organic ink. Fou-Dre vodka has a smooth taste without the bitter after bite. A great mixer, the fruit-infused vodka can stand alone and be enjoyed by itself.

Recording artist None, who recently appeared on BET’s 106 & Park, was on hand to join the festivities. Other noted celebrities included actor Thom Scott and Chef JJ.
