FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
St. Augustine Distillery Unveils New Vodka and Gin Brands
ST. AUGUSTINE, Fla. (July 27, 2015) – In celebration of the new law that took effect on July 1, which gives makers of spirits the ability to sell more of their product directly to customers, St. Augustine Distillery unveils new brands for their vodka and gin.
“This new law allows our customers to buy two bottles, per brand, per year,” explained Philip McDaniel, co-founder and CEO of St. Augustine Distillery in St. Augustine, Fla. and co-founder of Florida Distillers Guild. “That means that someone can buy two bottles of our Florida Cane Vodka, two bottles of our New World Gin and two bottles each of our rum and bourbon when they become available to the public.”
And with the unveiling of the Distillery’s new Pot Distilled Vodka, Ice Plant Edition Vodka, Pot Distilled Gin, and Pot Distilled Vodka, loyal customers can continue to purchase award-winning spirits directly from the craft distillery.
For example, the new law means that a customer can buy two (2) bottles each of the following directly from St. Augustine Distillery gift shop in one calendar year: Florida Cane Vodka, Pot Distilled Vodka, Ice Plant Edition Vodka, New World Gin, Pot Distilled Gin and Ice Plant Edition Gin. More brands will hit the shelves over the next six weeks.
“This landmark law will allow small distilleries like ours to sell more spirits and be more profitable,” said McDaniel. “This will lead to more local jobs, as well as an increase in the purchase of Florida agriculture and new sources of tax revenues for the state and federal government. It will also lead to more experience-based tourism for St. Augustine.”
The St. Augustine Distillery is open Monday through Saturday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m., and Sunday, 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. with free, guided tours and tastings every half hour. For more information, call 904-825-4962 or visit staugustinedistillery.com.
