We’re thrilled to announce that PUNCH is live! The new online magazine is a collaboration between Ten Speed and Talia Baiocch. Through both words and images Punch will explore the world of wine, spirits, and cocktails, and the culture that surrounds them.
Punch’s articles are chic, fun, and informative. Featuring everything from drinking with LCD Soundsystem’s DJ Nancy Whang where she shares her Pimm’s Cup recipe to a visit to “Alex’s Place” an unmarked, underground Istanbul cocktail bar.

Punch aims to capture the ethos that’s driving cocktails forward: the connection of beverage to tradition and place, the passion to innovate and yes—fun. Believing that the wine, cocktail and spirits worlds share more in common than they probably realize. They want to bring them together and shine a light on the many places where their values are entwined.
While stories are the core of the Punch vision, founders Talia Baiocchi and Leslie Pariseau are also bent on becoming a one-stop font for everything from drinks-related travel to mixing the perfect Manhattan. So we’re building a library of editor-tested cocktail recipes and an A-Z guide to drink.
