Les Créations de 2008 by Manvsmachine (MVM)

From Offstage to Onstage:

A Sensorial Immersion

In honour of Les Créations de 2008, the House of Krug collaborated with Manvsmachine (MVM), an experimental electronic jazz trio in Hong Kong to create a unique Krug Echoes journey both onstage and behind the scenes. The events, which took place on October 25 and 26 in Hong Kong, explored the concept, “What Takes Place Backstage Prepares Us for the Experience Onstage”. Through an initial offstage experience, guests discovered Krug's craftsmanship live from the House, and later delighted in MVM's onstage musical interpretations of Les Créations de 2008: Krug 2008 & Krug Grande Cuvée 164ème Édition. The multisensory immersion was followed by a food experience by a Krug Ambassade in Hong Kong.
