    • Avec

      Avec is a Black-owned mixer brand on a mission to “drink better, together.” Their products use 100% real ingredients, low sugar, and (sing it with us) natural botanicals. They're also a part of the 1% for the Planet Program, which was founded to prevent greenwashing (aka cleaning up the planet and stuff). Learn more here.

    • Loft & Bear

      Founded by Paul Ryan Elliott (left), Loft & Bear’s artisanal vodka is crafted in the heart of downtown Los Angeles arts district in small batches. Distilled from soft, organic winter wheat and California sourced spring water, they hand fill and label every bottle for a true craft experience. Loft & Bear also donates 5% of profits to their partners at PATH and other charitable community events. Not to mention, they have the word “Bear” in their name and we happen to think that’s pretty, prettyyyy cool. Learn more here.

    • Happy Cork, Brooklyn

      "I have always loved the wine and spirits world but when we were thinking of opening I wanted to have something that would be for the community and inclusive of brands that aren't typically carried anywhere else. We have the largest selection of black owned, minority owned, women owned and run wines and spirits in the US.  Being able to highlight these brands is a special part of this experience. A few of my favorites are Esrever, McBride Sisters Collection, La Fete Rose, Lve by John Legend, Uncle Nearest, HH Bespoke Spirits, Wifey brands, Three by Dwayne Wade." – Sunshine Foss, Owner
