Salute American Vodka Partners with Brescome Barton, Inc.

Charitable Spirit is Now Available in Retailers across Connecticut

 

BRANFORD, Conn. – Salute American Vodka, a high-quality craft vodka company, has announced a new partnership with Brescome Barton, Inc., the largest wholesale distributor of spirits, wine, and beer in Connecticut. The partnership will bring Salute American Vodka from more than 90 locations already sold to nearly every retailer across the state.

 

A spirit with soul, Salute American Vodka is a leader of corporate social responsibility in the spirit industry. The first dollar of every bottle sold goes directly to organizations that assist veterans and other American heroes in their pursuit of an education, furthering their careers, starting a business and achieving the American dream. The company’s charitable mission mirrors Brescome Barton’s commitment to carry socially responsible brands in the alcoholic beverage industry.

 

“We are proud to partner with Brescome Barton, a distributor that will not only help Salute American Vodka to expand across the state but a company that holds similar conscious business standards,” says Mike Lutz, Operations Manager of Salute American Vodka. “At Salute American Vodka, we have a product with a social mission and we put the mission first. One hundred percent of every Salute American Vodka dollar contributed goes directly to organizations that help veterans and other American heroes in their local communities.” 

One of Salute American Vodka's charity partners is  Work Vessels for Vets, Inc. The Connecticut-based nonprofit organization equips America’s returning veterans with the tools they need to start a business or pursue career education. The nonprofit works with veterans in the Greater New Haven area and across the state as well as across the country.

Salute American Vodka is USA Certified™ product, meaning everything from the ingredients to the packaging was made in the country. It’s an 80-proof vodka that is distilled four times, giving it a thicker pour with a clean, smooth, and odorless taste. In June 2016, the brand was acquired by Handcrafted Brands of Branford, Conn. The vodka is bottled and distilled in Rochester, N.Y. For more information about the brand and its impact, visit: www.saluteamerican.com.

What Does Dr. MLK, Jr. Mean to You?

Each month, we pose a question to the OneLISC family, and share the responses reflecting our diverse range of voices and backgrounds. To mark Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr.'s 92nd birthday, this month’s Reflections from the Field consider his life and work and his legacy today. The reflections register anger and dismay and exhaustion, but also hope, power and a commitment to keep working, to keep exerting good, strong pressure to shape our moral universe.

These Nonprofits Give Small Businesses What They Need to Survive and Thrive

So much goes into the relationship between small businesses and the nonprofit business development organizations (BDOs) that are dedicated to supporting them and helping them grow. The three BDOs profiled here, longtime LISC partners, have gone above and beyond to help entrepreneurs survive the COVID-19 pandemic. They know that the wellbeing of small businesses means jobs preserved, goods and services are accessible to the community, and local economies have a better chance of weathering the pandemic-borne recession.
