Before the breakup of the Seagram Spirits and Wine Group in the late 2000s, the powers that be decided it was time for something new. The premium Scotch whiskey brand Chivas Regal needed a makeover. It had to be something fresh and edgy, something that would generate buzz. And even though the luxury liquor was a favorite of Jim Morrison and enjoyed multiple mentions in the world of pop culture, the rebranding had to be something that would get the masses talking even more. Enter Jason Strauss and Noah Tepperberg.

The Art of EPIC Residences & Hotel

EPIC Residences & Hotel has made quite a splash on the Miami scene since opening its doors in early 2009. Located at the convergence of the Miami River and Biscayne Bay, it has become one of the haute spots that is redefining the area. Contributing to the buzz of this luxury locale is the permanent art collection displayed throughout the property.
