Fine Spirits: VeeV is the latest luxury spirit, introducing the trendy new acai superfruit into the distilled beverage world.
A hand-crafted, column distilled based wheat spirit, combined with 100% natural ingredients, including prickly pear and acerola cherry , VeeV is a new way for consumers to experience the flavors of the exotic land of Brazil.
Acai is one of the most talked about fruits in both the health and culinary world, because it is filled with beneficial antioxidants and bursting with berry flavor.
VeeV is a 60 proof clear spirit, but it is completely unlike vodka, although it makes an excellent vodka substitute in any drink, chilled neat or on the rocks. With a less alcoholic taste than its popular counterpart, the palate can appreciate the dark berry flavor of acai combined with citrus.
Drinking VeeV, one pays homage to a country responsible for the festive Carnival spirit, low-rise "Brazilian" bottoms and supermodel Gisele Bunchden. While VeeV is great on it's own, it also makes a perfect mixer to celebrate any festivity, from the upcoming holiday season to the 2016 Olympics.
For your holiday party, present the "Coco Loco" for something fun, but refined. The hot cocktail is a blend of VeeV, mixed with Godiva Milk Chocolate Liquor, milk and topped with a thin slice of Habanero Chili.
Or try the romantically dubbed "Mistletoe Touch," a blend of VeeV Acai Spirit and Grand Marnier, with muddled cranberries, blackberries and blueberries.
Not only is Veev "a better way to drink," it is also the only certified carbon neutral spirit company in the world. As part of their commitment to doing better, Veev donates $1 from each bottle sold to protect and replenish the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest through the Sambazon's Sustainable Acai project.
