An earthquake struck Marlborough, New Zealand Sunday afternoon, affecting several of the region\u2019s wineries. Philip Gregan, chief executive for New Zealand Winegrowers, told The Drinks Business that nobody was hurt in the 6.5 magnitude quake. Loveblock owner Kim Crawford reportedly lost nearly $40,000 worth of Sauvignon Blanc when a 40,000-liter tank crashed to the ground. Officials are warning residents of aftershocks throughout Marlborough.\r\n\r\nDavid Edward Sinegal\u2014son of Costco co-founder and former CEO James Sinegal\u2014purchased St. Helena\u2019s historic Inglewood Estate, including the vineyard and winery, for approximately $20 million. According to an application filed with the California Department of Alcoholic Beverage Control, the new owner will do business as the Sinegal Family Estate. The property was most recently Wolf Family Vineyards and before that, Jaeger Family Estate.\r\n\r\nIn celebration of Martini\u2019s 150th anniversary, parent company Bacardi is promoting a number of initiatives highlighting the brand's history. Martini's sparkling wines (Prosecco, Asti and Ros\u00e9) will receive a new look, featuring a "heritage crest" emphasizing the brand's founding in 1863. In addition, a limited edition Martini vermouth, dubbed Gran Lusso (Grand Luxury), is being released to mark the occasion. The Moscato-based, single-batch Gran Lusso is inspired by a 1904 recipe from Martini\u2019s archives.\r\n\r\nMaster Distiller Emeritus Elmer T. Lee, 93, passed away on July 16 after a short illness. In 1984, Lee introduced Blanton\u2019s, the world\u2019s first single-barrel Bourbon, and though he retired in 1985, he garnered accolades for his expertise for years to come. This includes his induction into the Bourbon Hall of Fame in 2001, the Lifetime Achievement Award from Whisky Advocate in 2002, and the Lifetime Achievement Award and Hall of Fame induction from Whisky Magazine in 2012.\r\n\r\nManhattan\u2019s 230 FIFTH Rooftop Bar & Penthouse Lounge is slinging what they claim is the world\u2019s most expensive frozen margarita.
