honor. remember. celebrate. those three words serve as the new BRAVE SPIRITS” tagline and their weight is heavy. as is the $2 donation that is donated from the sale of each bottle of AT EASE RUM, FIRST IN WHISKEY, VALOR VODKA and STANDING GUARD GIN.
an american company, with the exception of some of the gin’s juniper berries, every single ingredient and component is also american made. happy 4th of july!
at the moment, BRAVE SPIRITS is available in a handful of states (PA, NJ and DE). but the concept behind this brand is so creative, novel and generous that it’s only a matter of time until it’s available everywhere. my brother in law is vice president of his construction union. he’s very pro-american labor, obviously. he visited me for a fourth of july bbq and fell in love with the complete set of four soldier bottles. he has asked me to find out when he will be able to purchase them online because wants to buy all four asap. he was beyond impressed with this product!
i especially love the bottle design. the shape cleverly emulates the silhouette of a soldier and the label poses as his uniform arm patch. the names are quite ingenious as well.
the brainchild of David and Jennifer Fox, BRAVE SPIRITS or 20% of it’s $20 retail cost to the Brave Spirits Foundation. Composed of retired members of America’s services, the foundation chooses how to properly distribute the funds among charities and organizations that support America’s servicemen and women and their families.
check them out today, sign up for the newsletter, maybe they’ll be holding a tasting near you… BRAVE SPIRITS

charles (scorpio) instructed his mechanics to outfit his aston martin, a 21st birthday present from queen elizabeth (taurus), with a bioethanol engine which he’s taken to running on surplus wine. waste not, want not… even for the royal family, whose royal train runs on biodiesel. this is a great video to watch… especially the ending, where the reporter suggests a jet that runs on leftover champagne.
