Now Millions of Streamers will get to Clean Up Their Vodka Act ®Meet award-winning FIFTY STATES Vodka, the All-American Vodka that packs a punch Big enough to become the Official Vodka of UFC Partner, Titan FC Under the watch of billionaire Dana White and The New Buzz at Xtreme Action Park
Award-winning Local Choice Spirits, a female-family run company owned by Pixie Paula Dezzutti partnered with the legendary Italian Liberati family to launch ultra-premium FIFTY STATES Vodka, now the official sponsor of Titan FC which will broadcast to over 500 million streamers worldwide. One of the few products made entirely from American farmer’s Grain and resources, award winning FIFTY STATES was created to be America’s Vodka and is positioned to become the best-selling vodka of 2019-2020 replacing many of the industry leaders.
CHARLESTON, Apr 20, 2019 – FIFTY STATES Vodka recently joined the line-up of award-winning Local Choice Spirits products, produced in South Carolina’s aptly awarded distillery of the year, Striped Pig Distillery. The premium vodka is 6x distilled, gluten free and offers a smooth, uniquely crisp experience determined to make a statement that is setting a new standard. The distinct bottle design easily stands out and oozes American elegance, a combination that until now has been missing from the market. FIFTY STATES is 100% produced and bottled in the USA, positioning itself as America’s Vodka.
Thanks to the perseverance of the Liberati family there is history in the making here as Fifty States Vodka is the first female owned spirits company to take a leading supporting sports role being named the official sponsor of UFC partner Titan FC. “We are looking forward to showcasing this premium American made vodka and partnering with them to support military veterans through Titan’s philanthropic partners A-HERO (aherousa.com) and SOWW (sowwcharity.com)” said Titan FC COO Lex McMahon. Titan FC 54 will take place Friday, April 26th, 2019 at Xtreme Action Park in Fort Lauderdale, Florida with billionaire Dana White, the CEO of UFC Fighting at ringside with FIFTY STATES Vodka in tow. Fighters will weigh in on Wednesday at the pre-launch yacht event, It’s A 10 Party, featuring celebrity guests and hosted by another pioneering woman, CEO Carolyn Aaronson, wife of Jeff Aaronson, the CEO of Titan FC Fighting.
Now featured as the official vodka of Xtreme Action Park, thrill seekers can enjoy FIFTY STATES every night of the week, not just on fight night. “The reason we are doing this partnership is because your product is 100% made in the United States and I want a bottle on my bar that you know what it represents. I know you are doing the right thing by giving back to our veteran families, something other companies just say they are going to do but never back it up”, said Food and Beverage Manager Tim Shepley. Local Choice Spirits has already given generously to Folds of Honor to provide scholarships to the children and spouses of fallen and disabled service members through its partnership sales of other products on their platform. Pixie looks forward to the impact her family can make for A-HERO foundation.
Titan FC is dedicated to establishing itself as a marquee MMA promotion for both up-and-coming and veteran fighters. The promotion established a #FansFightersFirst creed towards providing fans with great, action-packed fights and fighters the opportunity to showcase their skills on a competitive platform. In June of 2015, Titan FC partnered with the UFC (Ultimate Fighting Championship) to showcase past, present and future Titan FC events on the UFC’s digital streaming network, UFC Fight Pass. In doing so, Titan FC is now available to mixed martial arts fans across the globe in 150 countries. FIFTY STATES was created to acknowledge the U.S. Military, not only to pay homage to the men and women that have served our country, but also to give back to the brave heroes and their families with a brand that generates jobs and opportunities. Local Choice Spirits is a pioneer in cause marketing innovation and hosts a “Lift Your Spirits” campaign on the infamous 92.5 Kickin’ Country Radio to honor the American Spirit.
The idea for FIFTY STATES came to Tom Liberati several years ago while he and his friend were drinking at a bar. Tito’s was one among only three or four products that were actually made in the USA, and this was only brought to Liberati’s attention because he asked the bartender. Unfamiliar with the brand names, Liberati could see no way of easily recognizing a bottle made in the USA, so he developed the concept for FIFTY STATES. "With the creation of FIFTY STATES Vodka, our goal is to give people a premium American product that even behind the bar is easily recognized as being made in the USA," said Tom. "People want to choose local and support local businesses and community causes that are important to them. But you don’t want to have to spend your time at the bar trying to figure out where a product is actually made and whether it’s going to meet your standards."
Family means everything to the partners involved in this American dream. The Liberati family, Tom, Lori, Michael and Lexi decided to partner with Local Choice Spirits upon hearing about CEO “Pixie” Paula Dezzutti and her female-strong team of expert brand developers, Rachyl Dezzutti, Robyn Ekvall and Addie Belasco. Liberati noted, “Hearing about a person with a huge heart, a huge portfolio, and a lot of years of experience (and located in South Carolina) I called her up and said, listen, this is what I have. With open arms she accepted it, took it in, as family, and here we are today having a wonderful time.” Remy and Randal Ekvall round off the team with their management skills and support of their mother and sisters. Todd Weiss, James Craig and Johnny Pieper are master distillers with almost a decade of experience in producing award winning spirits and will deliver what we predict will quickly become known as America’s Vodka.
“Pixie” Paula Dezzutti has been named one of the most sought-after branding experts in the US and comes from a decade of experience in advancing and utilizing a cutting-edge technology called TerrePURE as an early investor and member of the board of directors for Terressentia Corporation. She works her magic crafting the cleanest spirits in the marketplace with a concentration on building distilleries as well as diversity brands under a collaborative incubator platform. And she puts her money where her mouth is with her partnership platform offering the greatest chance of branding success! FIFTY STATES’ proprietary distillation process combined with a proprietary blend of premium U.S. grain gives this libation its unique and refreshing taste. Alongside the premium vodka, the brand name, and the brand ethos, the bottle itself is also undeniably American, featuring an eye-catching American Flag inspired design that recently took home the Silver Medal for packaging from the Denver International Spirits Competition 2019. The sleek frosted bottle is decorated with red vertical stripes adorned with white stars, and the bottleneck is wrapped in blue with white stars.
FIFTY STATES was intentionally designed to stand out for its elegance as well as for being easily recognized as a product made in the USA.
FIFTY STATES is currently available for purchase at the Striped Pig Distillery in Charleston, S.C., and select retailers across the U.S. and is also available for purchase online here.
FIFTY STATES Vodka has 40% alcohol by volume (ABV) and a suggested retail price of $28 for a 750ml bottle.
FIFTY STATES encourages you to celebrate at festivities with friends, family, and FIFTY STATES Vodka. But please remember to drink responsibly and in moderation.
Mix FIFTY STATES Vodka and freshly squeezed lemon juice in a cocktail shaker filled with ice. Shake for 3-5 seconds, then strain into a chilled sugar-rimmed martini glass. Garnish with a twisted lemon peel.
