Sarah Harrelson Launched Ultratravel U.S. at the NoMad Hotel

After an expansion that includes the middle east and India, European travel mag UltraTravel has finally arrived here in the US.  The original UK edition of Ultra travel launched in 2004 and has become the highest circulated travel mag in Europe. In celebration of the inaugural issue, travel and magazine executives as well as several members of the press gathered in New York City’s posh NoMad hotel for cocktails and a viewing of the first issue.  Just like its UK counterpart the US edition features a large format and high-definition photos.  While looking over the publication  guests enjoyed passing hors d’oeuvres and signature cocktails featuring Caliche premium Puerto Rican Rum.
