VeeV Spirits LLC is the first carbon neutral spirit brand and is an active member of 1% for the Planet® where one percent of VeeV’s sales are donated to rainforest preservation and environmental causes and was ranked by Inc. Magazine (September 2011) as one of the 250 fastest growing companies and brands in the U.S.
VeeV® Spirits, LLC was founded by brothers Courtney Reum and Carter Reum in Los Angeles in 2007. Inspired by the superfruit power of the açaí berry, the Reum brothers changed the alcohol industry by introducing VeeV®, The World’s First Açaí Spirit®. What started as a two-man start-up grew into one of the best-selling independent liquor brands in the U.S. Their social-entrepreneurship has captured the attention of other socially conscious entrepreneurs such as Shoes founder Mycoskie and Branson and both have mentioned VeeV Spirits LLC in their case studies on business.
VeeV® Spirits manufactures 2 product lines: VeeV, an açaí Spirit, and VeeV VitaFrute™, which is the first line of organic and all-natural super-fruit cocktails, and comes in three varieties: Cosmopolitan, Lemonade, and Margarita.
VeeV is an açaí-infused wheat based grain alcohol liquor distilled in Idaho. The 60-proof liquor was launched in 2007 by brothers, Courtney and Carter Reum. It is marketed as the first and only distilled spirit made from the açaí berry. VeeV also contains Vitamin C-rich acerola cherry and prickly pear, which is believed to combat hangovers. In addition, VeeV is a carbon neutral spirit, and for every bottle purchased, the company donates $1 towards tropical rainforest conservation in Brazil.
VeeV was awarded a score of 83 (out of 100) from the Beverage Testing Institute in 2009.
