Likewise, it will encourage the widespread support of Black owned Spirits, Wine and Beer companies, both nationally and internationally. The narratives and brand creation stories inspire and reflect the spirit, culture and ambition of a resilient people and rich heritage.  Now let’s raise a glass to that!
