In a statement, Drake said that the whiskey gives everyone ‘access to glamour, swagger and soul.’

‘We believe everyone should have access to glamour, swagger and soul,’ Drake said.

‘Virginia Black grants them that access, allowing people to embody the lifestyle always, not just on special occasions.’

His co-founder, ex-financier Brent Hocking, also spoke about his partnership with the hitmaker, saying they ‘hit it off on our love for basketball, music, style, fashion, we were like-minded.’

He added about Drake: ‘He’s a connoisseur himself. He loves wine. He doesn’t just drink, he asks.’

While no doubt the flavour of the drinks themselves will be a drawcard for fans, the bottles also feature a unique design which sets them apart.
