My guests are almost always my inspiration. This drink was for a group of lovely ladies celebrating an impending nuptial. The bride to be was looking for something fun, bubbly, and different from her normal vodka drink. I picked her brain on some of the flavors she liked and went to work. The challenges of divining a drink for a guest on the spot is my favorite part of the job. I kept it relatively simple, bright, and through a little homage to yardbirds expansive whiskey offerings in there to tie the whole experience together.
VEEV, now 70 Proof, is a handcrafted premium spirit, that is infused with just the right amount of Acai and other natural flavors like prickly pear and acerola cherry which makes it a better alternative to vodka. Crafted at our award winning distillery that is powered by renewable wind energy, VEEV is distilled in small batches to ensure we achieve a perfectly balanced taste. The result is a versatile, full-bodied spirit with a smooth finish. So go ahead, cheat on the harsh taste and same ole boring vodka you’ve grown tired of. #CheatOnVodka
