Vecchia Romagna (VR) 1820, a top Italian brand, has reinforced its position in the wines and spirits market. The brand sponsored the Project LOUD (Lagos of Our Dream) initiative, a Gov. Sanwo-Olu empowerment initiative that is targeted at equipping youth with vocational skills. At the graduation ceremony of the graduates of the initiative on January 31, 2024, in Surulere, VR 1820 empowered top students from the Mixology class with robot cocktail blenders to kickstart their careers.
The global Mixology market, which specializes in mixing cocktails, and inventing new and exotic drinks to refresh socialites in bars and at events, is projected to reach 1.4 billion USD before 2028. The attractive size of the segment has raised the number of young people willing to build a career or business out of mixing cocktails. VR 1820 is enabling this set of aspiring young people by sponsoring the Project LOUD Initiative where classes are organised to teach the skills.
The top graduating students of the Mixology class who received the VR 1820 branded blenders are Izegbu Ifeanyi, Iroegbulam Ijeoma, Richard Okoro, Zainab Lawal, and Baily Enoch.
Speaking about the initiative, the Lagos state Commissioner for Science, Innovation & Technology, Honourable Olatubosun Alake, who presented the VR 1820 robot blenders to the top graduating students, said the state government is committed to equipping youth with useful skills that will help them build a business and contribute meaningfully to their communities.
The Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Fidossi Wines & Spirits which is the distributor of VR 1820 in Nigeria, Engineer Fidelis Egbochie said, “VR 1820 is widely regarded as ‘master of emotions’ due to its reputation in connecting people at various high level, entertaining and social events. The brand is committed to the Lagos state government's aspiration of equipping young people with valuable skills that will help raise their economic contributory levels.”
“We are delighted to be supporting the Project LOUD initiative. We believe in the government’s economic development agenda and we hope the beneficiaries of the initiative will go ahead to build a business out of the skills they have acquired, as well as the equipment they have received”, he added.
Speaking on behalf of the graduates of the Mixology class, Izegbu Ifeanyi said, “I am so happy for the opportunity the government has provided for me and my colleagues to learn how to make cocktails and build a business out of it. Also, VR 1820 has shown extraordinary support to us by gifting us robot blenders to ensure we have the right equipment to start making money from what we have learned.”
