ENGINE, the 100% organic, distilled dry gin made in Italy, has announced its partnership with professional rally driver and automotive thrill-seeker Ken Block. As Ken Block’s official spirit sponsor, the year-long collaboration will include the ENGINE logo on his pilot suit, a series of unique digital content, an exclusive co-branded event at Hoonigan Racing Headquarters and more.
In 2023, Block’s Hoonigan Racing Headquarters will be home to a new ENGINE bar, highlighting the ENGINE’s various 80s retro details, which are a tribute to the characteristic world of racing. Block and ENGINE will also play host to events on the ranch located in the Wasatch Mountains of Park City. Guests will have the opportunity to learn from the award-winning racer as they witness the Gymkhana legend drifting in action. Block’s official announcement of the partnership can be found on ENGINE’s Instagram page.
Speaking on the partnership Ken Block said: “I love motorsports and marketing and when I saw ENGINE hit the market with its innovative bottle design, I knew it would be a perfect partner for me to collaborate with. I’m really looking forward to working with them.”
Both eye-catching and sustainable, ENGINE’s design is crafted from recyclable aluminum and inspired by oil and fuel cans, motocross races and racing vehicles. With a goal to stand out from today’s world of premium spirits, there is an intentional contrast between this vessel that implies grease, grit and grime and the pure, clean and award-winning liquid you’ll find inside.
Commenting on the partnership Paolo Dalla Mora said: “The world of motor racing and automobiles is not only what inspired ENGINE, but it is something that I’ve been passionate about since I was young – making our partnership with Ken Block a dream come true for me. I have admired Ken and his racing for many years, and I know ENGINE is a perfect brand to help fuel his dreams in the year ahead.
For me, ENGINE is about returning to the ’80s and ’90s dreams of mine, and our partnership really responds to everyone who is dreaming big and living life to the max. We can’t wait for everyone to get their hands on the limited-edition cans and attend our events as we head into 2023. And, remember – if you are out enjoying ENGINE, leave your car at home.”
