The 1990s to early 2000s was an amazing era for hip-hop. And that infectious feeling is about to return with the comeback of the iconic blend of vodka, cognac, and tropical fruit juices that is Hpnotiq.
A favorite of the nightlife scene back in the day, Hpnotiq is now ready to introduce itself to a new generation of drinkers. Don’t forget, in the days of gold chains, snapbacks and logo-heavy clothing, Hpnotiq played a huge part in hip-hop life style.
