Travel
with a Twist

Take a dynamic travel brand, stir with one of the world’s biggest names in wine and spirits and you get the heady cocktail we call Spirited Stories – a collaboration between DHARMA and iconic brands such as Absolut Vodka, Jameson Irish Whisky and Perrier-Jouët Champagne.

We wanted to shake up the group travel formula by offering something with more fizz, more flavor and more fun. So like any good gourmet, we took inspiration from the French. First, the idea of convivialité, that incomparable feeling of joy and contentment that comes from sharing a table with friends old and new.

Second, the concept of terroir, the sense of place that’s inherent in the flavor of wine and other products made with care. Connecting with destination, meeting producers and tasting in convivial company – for us, all the ingredients of the perfect trip.

A double shot of fun, a generous splash of curiosity and a dash of hedonism – that’s mixology the Spirited Stories way. Bienvenue, and santé!

Spirited Stories celebrate conviviality, the magic that happens around a shared table. We mix the perfect cocktail of place, people and produce to create a new style of travel – passionate, authentic and joyful.
