It was love at first sip for Steven Soderbergh. While filming the movie Che, Oscar-winning Director Steven Soderbergh fell in love with Bolivia’s 500 year old National Spirit made from the Muscat of Alexandria grape grown at high altitude in the Bolivian Andes.

Before Soderbergh decided to import it to the US, it had never been out of the land-locked Bolivia.  And now it can be yours on


Singani 63 is loved by some of the country’s top mixologists for its versatility. Coming from vineyards that average 6,000 feet in elevation or higher, picked at optimal ripeness, the spirit is meticulously distilled to preserve the intense aromatic authenticity.


Singani 63 is very floral with notes of vine flowers, jasmine, orange blossom, honeysuckle, and more. Beautiful texture, clean flavors, and a remarkably smooth finish with lingering acidity will leave you wanting more. It’s been this way since 1530 when Spanish missionaries brought grapevines to the Bolivian Andes so they could party on the road.


Nearly half a millennium later Singani 63 would be given Domain of Origin AND Geographical Indication status. And when Steven Soderbergh got turned on to Singani 63 while making the movie Che, he decided he would bring it to the U.S. even if it meant he might end up drinking his entire inventory himself.


As soon as I tasted Singani I called Vodka and said ‘I’ve Met Someone’

Soderbergh’s career has long been marked with commercial successes, with Sex, Lies and Videotape, Erin Brockovich, Traffic and the Ocean Eleven’s Triology reboot among his many acclaimed directorial hits. With a career so celebrated, Soderbergh has just about seen and experienced it all, which is why his passion to bring Singani 63 to the masses means you should probably get your hands on this must-have as a perfect way to toast to the holidays.


I can’t believe I qualify to be a GrapeStars partner! This is most excellent because members of the GrapeStars universe are curious and adventurous, my favorite combination in a human!  Steven Soderbergh
