On December 29, 2012 our first bottles of Brothers Vilgalys Krupnikas appeared on the ABC Shelves of Orange County. All 36 bottles sold out in one day.
Our Krupnikas is now sold in 10 states and are still going strong! And while this may have started as a primarily "Rim does a business" it's come this far largely thanks to our Founder's Club & Kickstarter Backers, my employees Michlle & Allison, my family who's been hugely supportive, and my business partners Jason & Dylan.
To say thanks for everyone who's been there for us, and to celebrate everything that lies ahead in this crazy adventure, we're hosting a shindig at Brothers Vilgalys. If you haven't been here recently, we've got a cozy new tasting room, a much more organized production space, and five delicious liqueurs which feature well in a variety of great cocktails and on their own.
I'm also excited to say we're partnering with the Piedmont Wildlife Center for this event, which wil benefit from ticket sale donations (Brothers Vilgalys will also be selling closed bottles at the event). The Piedmont Wildlife Center provides eductation and outreach, supports habitat conservation, and also helps with wildlife rehabilitation. For ABC Permit reasons, free tickets are also available.
We'll have drinks, snacks, board games and more for everyone. Please come out and enjoy an afternoon at Bros V.
(Rumor: We could even have hawks / owls in attendance???)
