After severing ties with those muthaf*ckin’ racists at Cristal, JAY Z had to move on to a new alcohol to
shove down our throats drink responsibly. Over the years, he’s been a strong supporter of Armand de Brignac (better known as “Ace of Spades”) and now the champagne brand belongs to him.
In a statement released earlier today, Sovereign Brands revealed that Hov has purchased Armand de Brignac for an undisclosed amount.
“We are proud to announce that Sovereign Brands, a New York-based wine and spirits company owned by the Berish family, has sold its interest in the Armand de Brignac (“Ace of Spades”) Champagne brand to a new company led by the globally renowned Shawn “JAY Z” Carter,” says Sovereign Brands.
Yvonne Lardner, global director of brand communications for Sovereign, added in an emailed statement: “We have had a wonderful relationship with Jay Z throughout the years since he first discovered Armand de Brignac. He became interested in owning the brand and made us an offer we simply couldn’t refuse.”
Damn, the Ws keep adding up for one Shawn Corey Carter. What’s next?
