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.
