Johannesburg, South Africa – Bisquit & Dubouché in partnership with Kwesta celebrated heritage and legacy at the elevated experience, The 17th Bar.

As part of their partnership and through their shared values of going further, following your instinct, being bold as visionaries and pioneers;  Bisquit & Dubouché and Kwesta hosted guests for a unique opportunity that saw the musician narrate his musical journey that continues to see him succeed in the industry. Kwesta got intimate and personal with an immersive and stripped-down show – a performance in his career like no other, which brought the attending guests inside his music, the moments behind each song created and where he is headed next.

Referenced from 16 bars given on rap verses, the 16 years of music from Kwesta, and following the 16 Bars concert earlier this year – The 17th Bar saw entertainer Nomuzi “Moozlie” Mabena welcome guests which included rapper ROII; singer Thabsie, media personality Ms Cosmo, musican MÖRDA and more join Bisquit & Dubouché for ‘A Story to Sip’ with Kwesta as he detailed his journey down his music lane – showcasing hits and sharing the stories that made the music succeed for over a decade.

Just like the progressive spirit and the disruptive cognac pioneered by Alexandre Bisquit and Adrien Dubouché,  who went further to tell their own stories and leave behind their own legacies – Kwesta spoke on how he followed his instincts to success and shared his ‘story to sip’; while guests enjoyed signature Bisquit & Dubouché cocktails named after hit songs Ngud’, Ngiyaz’fela Ngawe and Spirit.

In a short quote at The 17Th Bar – Ryan George, Campari Group Marketing Manager South Africa said, had this to say, “Bisquit & Dubouché holds an over 200 year heritage and a proud story that carries a spirit of progression, innovation, and disruption – vital in crafting and distilling an unmistakable cognac. Much like Bisquit & Dubouché, Kwesta’s story also combines the same defining characteristics which form part of his legacy. We Share a Sip with Kwesta as we celebrate 16 years of his music tonight at The17th Bar. We’re proud to have Kwesta as our global ambassador and to feature him in the international A Story To Sip TV Commercial, which is now live.”

Recalling life changing memories, Kwesta shared how he got to 16years in the game -“The story of how I got here? I needed to write a 16, but the problem was I didn’t know what a 16 was and ended up doing 34 bars. A few days later, Slikour called he said, ‘I think you should come back, we want to chat to you.’ In that moment, my life changed.”  Proudly sharing in excitement, Kwesta continues to celebrate his partnership with Bisquit & Dubouché as the global ambassador and his feature in the Story To Sip international TV commercial. “Stories are made to be shared and my story is 16 years old, and counting. Thank you to everyone who joined us tonight as I shared my story to sip with you all over the unmistakable – Bisquit & Dubouché,” exclaimed Kwesta at The 17th Bar. He went on to say, “I’m thrilled to partner with Bisquit & Dubouché as their global ambassador and can’t wait to inspire more Stories to Sip together with upcoming pioneers and visionaries.”

Ensuring more stories to sip are shared, Bisquit & Dubouché will take over KONKA in Soweto for an unforgettable night headlined by A Story to Sip moment, and with international icons Black Coffee and Kabza De Small on Sunday, 26 November 2023. Be sure to join them to share #AStoryToSip.
