Kevin Hart Covers June 2023 Food & Beverage Magazine Issue
The June 2023 issue of Food & Beverage magazine (www.fbmagazine.com) features film and television star Kevin Hart, speaking on his new tequila brand. The media king, who has recently branched off into a variety of food and beverage space endeavors, now joins the tequila world. He celebrated his cover at his Los Angeles based Hartbeat headquarters this week, while hosting an activation for Gran Coramino.
“I knew exactly what I wanted Gran Coramino to taste like. I just needed someone who could bring that authenticity and high quality product to fruition,” said Hart, Founder of Gran Coramino Tequila. “Juan, my partner James Morrissey from Global Brand Equities, and myself decided on every aspect of this product. We worked tirelessly to create the perfect Reposado Cristalino and Anejo and I couldn’t be happier with the result.”
Quoted from the cover article: As entrepreneurs, long-time philanthropists, and tequila lovers from diverse backgrounds, Beckmann and Hart first bonded over their passion for tequila. However, they quickly realized they shared a commitment of giving back to their respective communities in a meaningful way. Recognizing the importance of bringing financial resources and learning opportunities to deserving small businesses, Gran Coramino is proud to donate $1 from every bottle sold to support diverse entrepreneurs and their endeavors. Working with trusted partners in Mexico and the United States, Gran Coramino is helping close wealth and opportunity gaps through cash grants and programs.
“We’ve been working with Local Initiatives Support Corporation (LISC) to create the Coramino Fund — a give back program providing $10,000 grants to Black and Latinx owned small businesses all over the country,” stated Hart. “I know that pursuing the path of entrepreneurship is hard work. I also know that some of our best and brightest have historically been excluded from opportunities or lacked the resources to pursue their entrepreneurial dreams and we want to do our part to break down those barriers.”
Emmy & Grammy nominated Kevin Hart was born and raised in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where he launched his career as a comedian during an amateur night at a local comedy club. Over the years Hart has become Hollywood’s box office powerhouse, opening ten films at number one at the box office with $4.23 billion revenue at the global box office. Hart is the Chairman of Hartbeat and Founder of HartBeat Ventures.
Both of these companies play an integral part of his eco-system serving as an incubator for extraordinary growth and creativity. Hart continues to develop, star, and produce feature films and television and podcasts via Hartbeat for his various partners which include Netflix, Peacock, Sirius XM and Audible.
In 2020 Hart released his seventh hour long stand-up special, “Zero Fu**ks Given,” which quickly became Netflix’s biggest stand-up special of 2020 and earned him a Grammy nomination for “Best Comedy Album”. Hart also earned Emmy nominations for “Die Hart,” for “Outstanding Actor in a Short Form Comedy or Drama Series” along with an Emmy nomination for his Docu-series, “Don’t F**k This Up”. Kevin is a New York Times Best Selling author twice over and his first Audible original, “The Decision,” was nominated for an Audie award for “Best Original Audiobook in 2021.”
