Okanagan Spirits is hoping to boost the spirits of those in the Ukraine.
For the month of March, the company is donating 100 per cent of the proceeds from the sale of all lines of Okanagan Spirits vodka.
“In the hopes of lessening the plight of Ukrainian refugees fleeing the Russian invasion, we will be donating all proceeds from every bottle of vodka sold from our family distillery throughout the entire month of March, and we are hoping to inspire our wonderful spirits community to join in,” the Vernon- and Kelowna-based company said in a release.
At the end of the month the company will tabulate the sales of all of its three vodka lines, in all size formats (1.75L, 750ml, 375ml, and 50ml), and will be donating 100 per cent of the proceeds to the Ukraine Emergency fund through Canada’s branch of the UN Refugee Agency UNHCR.
“Any bottles that you have already purchased in March, or any bottles that you purchase through the end of the month, either for yourself or for your restaurant, lounge, or liquor store, will be included in this effort to hopefully help make this horrific situation a little better for the families affected,” said Okanagan Spirits.
