The plush outlet also lets you buy beautiful ornate glasses and gorgeous floral arrangements as gifting options to complement the premium alcohol purchase.

Using that as an inspiration, we had the gorgeous and glamourous Malaika walking for us and to launch Mansionz at the same time which is such a great concept, goes with the ethos of my brand and was a great experience!” said Suneet Verma on the launch of his new line at Mansionz, Bangalore.
A vision for the future of Mansionz
Living Liquidz looks to increase its existing presence by adding more points of sale across India and specially at domestic airports. The brand plans to increase more tasting lounges and also create more private label brands. The brand is looking at a presence in every city and every state and will aim for setting up a minimum of two Mansionz per state. As and when there is an opportunity, the brand will also look to enter the duty free business at airports. In the next few years, Living Liquidz will seek to be in every segment of the alcohol market with their own private labels in almost ten segments including rum, dark rum, whisky. At present its wines from private labels have a 25 per cent market share of the liquor sold in their stores and they would like to see this go up to 50 per cent. In addition, Living Liquidz aims to present 50 top brands from the best alcohol producing nations worldwide for exclusive distribution to its stores and customers in India.
“We have great aspirations for Mansionz as a brand – what we offer is a luxury experience and a great experimental space for likeminded people to come together, try out various types of beverages and settle on one that they enjoy. The concept of a Tasting Room is one that is international and our customers in India yearn for that kind of an exclusive space where they can sample foreign liquors and wines and have a first-rate experience. The goal is to provide a novel experience with Mansionz by Living Liquidz and to take the tasting notion up a notch,” said Moksh.
