Heroes Vodka, a veteran-owned vodka made from 100% American grain, today announced a partnership with Heidelberg Distributing Company in Ohio and Kentucky, expanding the brand’s availability to 15 states nationwide.
Founded in 2011 by U.S. Marine Corps Veteran Travis McVey, Heroes Vodka is part of the R.S. Lipman Company portfolio of brands.
Every sale of Heroes Vodka supports America’s military, the company says. A portion of every purchase is donated to AMVETS, Operation StandDown and other Veteran organizations to develop community assistance programs for American Veterans, active duty military and their families. In 2016, Heroes Vodka donated $12,000 to AMVETS, $2,000 to Operation StandDown, and $1,000 to Bunker Labs, the company says, totaling donations of more than $60,000 since inception.
“We are proud to partner with Heroes Vodka and the R.S. Lipman Company to bring Heroes Vodka to the Kentucky marketplace,” says Jimmy Carpenter, Heidelberg’s Vice President and General Manager (KY). “Kentuckians enthusiastically support our Veterans and we are proud to have added this great tasting vodka to our portfolio that does just that.”
Kevin McNamara, Vice President of Sales & Marketing for Heidelberg said: “We are very excited to be partnering with Heroes Vodka and the R.S. Lipman Company and introducing Heroes Vodka to the Ohio market. Veterans have always been supported in Ohio and we are proud to add this great tasting vodka that does the same.”
Bottled in Frankfort, KY, Heroes Vodka is four times distilled.
