Hey there! So things are changing around here at Garvey and we just wanted to take the time to catch you up on it all.
From here on out we at Garvey are going to go to new standards and efforts of connecting with you, our favorite people in the world, our customers, past, present, and prospective. We understand that you are all busy people and sometimes taking the time out of your day to call us or visit for product information and other necessities isn’t always best. So, we’re bring it to you on that little screen of yours.
We will be active on Twitter, where we will be posting about promotions, product trends, and other inside information we may not have been able to let you in on before, or at least in a timely way.
We will also be on Instagram, where you can check out our newest arrivals as we have them in stock, creative takes on your favorite products, and maybe even a behind-the-scenes of what we’re up to.
As always you can always check out our Beverage Education blog for more industry and product information and our Facebook to connect with us.
If there’s anything you need to let us know about, tweet, direct message us on Instagram, or call us! We can now hear you and get back to you faster than before!
You may not be aware of this because of the recent May gray, but summer is just around the corner! Whether you’re getting ready for graduations, celebrations, or regular summer relaxations, you deserve something that won’t leave you feeling bloated with chemical ingredients when the heat comes around. Be prepared and stock up on some LEAF Vodka. LEAF is finished using the freshest water, sourced directly from nature. The flavor characteristics of the water are incorporated into the liquid, creating distinct and sophisticated vodka expressions.
This isn’t just some weird industry jargon we’re using here. As people around the world are noticing, organic and fresh ingredients most definitely matter when it comes to what they’re putting in their bodies. For LEAF, the liquid is triple decanted prior to the filtration process, producing a pure spirit base and allowing the character of Rocky Mountain and Alaskan Blue Lake water to enhance the vodka. The liquid is then distilled five times using organic wheat grains, providing a softness to the taste.
So, take care of yourself organically this summer and find reLEAF at Garvey!
Call or visit us at Garvey Wholesale Beverage for pricing, availability, and/or more information.
This week on our Beverage Education section, we at Garvey would like to take the time to bring your attention to a cause our partners and founders at Garvey hold close to their hearts: the Lone Survivor Foundation (LSF). For those of you who don’t know the Lone Survivor Foundation dedicates its time and services to a providing a “close-knit and understanding support system. A place where the service members and their families could heal together as they all worked through the consequences of war.” Founded by former Navy SEAL, Marcus Luttrell, LSF works with multiple companies to raise funds to support assistance programs for branches of the military.
Of the companies that give a portion of their proceeds for these causes are Heroes Vodka and RumChata. For a limited time throughout the year RumChata releases their acclaimed ‘Freedom Bottle’. How does this differ from the traditional RumChata bottle? The proceeds made from RumChata’s Freedom bottle’s sales go to supporting the Lone Survivor Foundation, as well as service members and their loved ones. While the RumChata Freedom bottle is only available for a limited time, Heroes Vodka is available year round.
For those of you who aren’t familiar with Heroes. The company was founded in 2009 by Travis McVey, a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps. The portion of the proceeds made from every Heroes Vodka purchase goes to AMVETS to support military veterans, active military members, and their families.
Don’t forget to take the time to support our American heroes, friends.
If you’re interested in purchasing the RumChata’s limited edition Freedom Bottle and/or McVey’s Heroes Vodka, call us, visit us, or check out website for availability.
With summer just around the corner, we’re all at the brink of drifting away from the one that means most to us: our drinking buddy! We’ve heard it all before. That moment your friend turns down a night of drinking because they want to watch their figure for the hot summer months ahead. Well, Be-Tini is here to save us all. With only 25 calories per ounce and no added sugar, Be-Tini has made it their mission to create cocktails you’d be both proud to serve and happy to receive. Don’t believe us? Try it out for yourself! The recipe below has in it Be-Tini Pink Cranberry, but if you’re interested in something a little more tart and/or exotic, try their Be-Tini Appletini and their Be-Tini Tropical Sunset to get a true feel of what they’re all about.
If you’re interested in tasting Be-Tini, stop by Garvey Wholesale Beverage on Thursday, May 19, 2016 from 12:30- 4:30 p.m. for a demo and tasting! Call us for more information or check out our Calendar of Events to find out what the latest demos and tastings will be.
Brooklyn Gin is a craft spirit proudly handmade in New York one batch at a time, using artisan methods and the finest natural ingredients. It is the only gin made with fresh, hand-cut citrus peels and hand-cracked juniper berries and was recently awarded the prestigious Double Gold Medal at the San Francisco World Spirits Competition.
With fresh, juicy citrus notes and a bright floral aroma, Brooklyn Gin was created with classic gin cocktails in mind. It will sing in your gin and tonic and is remarkably lovely in a martini, as well as improve upon citrus driven cocktails like the Brooklyn Gin signature cocktail, the Bee’s Knees:
2 oz Brooklyn Gin
3/4 oz fresh lemon juice
3/4 oz honey syrup (1:1 warm water to honey)
Shake with ice.
Serve up, garnished with a fresh slice of lemon
Interested in freshening up this spring? Call us at Garvey Wholesale Beverage.
