Great Jones Distilling Company, Manhattan’s first and only whiskey distillery since Prohibition, is bringing Jean-Paul Basquiat’s iconic artwork back to Great Jones Street, just down the block from the site of his apartment and famous art studio in Noho.

The full collection includes the release of three exclusive bottles featuring Basquiat artwork; “Basquiat’s New York” tasting room featuring oversized Basquiat imagery, larger-than-life decals, and nostalgic items from 1980’s New York; the opening of a specialty pop-up “The Basquiat Bar,” which will serve a menu of Basquiat-inspired small bites and signature cocktails, and a capsule collection of specialty merchandise, designed and produced by Rome Pays Off, a New York City brand that celebrates art, culture, and individual style.
