Herschel Supply has partnered with Tuff Gong, the Kingston recording studio Bob Marley founded in 1970 – known as the home of reggae where he produced his greatest works – to release a limited new collection. The new Tuff Gong x Herschel Supply collection has been crafted to capture the essence of Marley’s creative spirit and cultural impact with designs and prints in tote bags, headwear, and more.

All products from the collection will be available ahead of the release of the biopic, “Bob Marley: One Love” on February 14, 2024. Through this collection, Herschel comes together with Tuff Gong, reflecting on Marley’s voice, messaging, and music as the “soundtrack of our brand,” while paying homage to the singer and songwriter. The designs of the bags and totes in the new collection are immediately classic with their retro-modern styles and earthy color ways with subtle details. The apparel offerings pay tribute to Bob Marley, featuring the iconic images of 6 of the legend’s album covers.

The Collection starts at $35 and goes to $100 and is available online at www.herschel.com. Learn more about the collection, here.

About Tuff Gong

In 1970, Bob Marley founded Tuff Gong Records, previously headquartered at 56 Hope Road in Kingston, Jamaica, now home of the iconic Bob Marley Museum. Bob had purchased the property with his wife, Rita, in 1974 and operated Tuff Gong here until his transition in 1981. In 1986, Rita Marley established the museum at the Hope Road location, having moved Tuff Gong to 220 Marcus Garvey Drive in Downtown Kingston.

Today, Tuff Gong International continues to sign world-renowned recording artists. Its current headquarters location is also home to Tuff Gong Studios, one of the most celebrated recording studios in the world, and the only vinyl pressing plant in the Caribbean.

Bob Marley earned the nickname “Tuff Gong” for his fierceness, tenacity, and innate leadership qualities. It is also a nod to the early Rastafarian leader Leonard “Gong” Howell.

The limited-edition Solento Extra Añejo is perfectly sip-able and expertly aged 40 months.

On October 9th, Solento, the award-winning USDA-certified organic tequila, today announces the limited-edition release of Solento Extra Añejo. Made in small batches from 100% USDA-certified organic blue weber agave and expertly aged for 40 months in American oak barrels, Solento Extra Añejo is a deliciously smooth and sip-able libation that proves that good things take time.

Inspired by the tequila’s extraordinary smoothness and exquisite flavor, Solento Extra Añejo comes in a limited-edition box set for the ultimate sipping experience. With only 480 in existence, the box set includes a hand-labeled bottle of Solento Extra Añejo, two ribbed rocking glasses, and a unique, hand-selected, vinyl to elevate the sipping experience – each with a different record. The sleek black bottle with grooves that mimic a vinyl record is an eye-catching twist on Solento’s existing bottle design and the box set is an elevated collaboration between Solento and Studio Ethur Ethur resulting in a premium gifting experience for moments that matter.

“Producing quality tequila is already a long process that cannot be rushed. Solento Extra Añejo has a 40-month aging time that requires patience, but the end result is worth the wait,” said Taylor Steele, founder of Solento Organic Tequila. “My hope is that each sip is an experience – one that inspires you to savor the moment. Reach for this limited run when you’re looking to sip, share, enjoy a quality record, and take it slow.”

The Solento Extra Añejo features smooth butterscotch, vanilla, oak and fresh pepper aromas with tastes of cinnamon, warm caramel and a touch of tobacco. The limited-edition box set retails for $299 at siptequila.com.

About Solento Organic Tequila

Made for those who appreciate the ritual of slowing down and being present, Solento is an award-winning, USDA certified organic tequila range. The name Solento is based on the Spanish translation of the words “slow sun”. We celebrate slow. Our certified organic agave grows slowly under the Mexican sun for seven years and is harvested in small batches from a single estate in Jalisco.

Championing field-to-sip organic craft, Solento’s award-winning team has been producing tequila for over 60 years. They practice a production process that respects the environment and favors quality over quantity. Harvesting in small batches from a single estate, our jimadors are meticulous in their technique; they carefully remove the bitter stem leaving behind only the naturally sweet parts of the agave.

And of course, those epic nights spent reveling with friends at The Starboard – the source of our inspiration.

We wanted to make something that captured the essence of East Coast summers. Something that you could take home that’d spark an amazing memory from an unforgettable summer. A drink that you could share with friends and family to make new moments.
