New Orleans, Louisiana 2021 – New Orleans is world-renowned for its rich culture and incredible food and beverage scene. Also knowns as the Big Easy, it is the perfect setting for creativity of all shapes and sizes to flourish and grow. Thanks to the investment of the state of Louisiana in the local beverage industry, many new beverage artisans and start-ups have been creating unique product lines that serve the local community.
Endymion Spirits Co. is a newly established New Orleans based wine, spirits and beverage brand that has already successfully distributed up-and-coming spirit- and beverage-brands in their home city. Their goal is to bring a new wave of beverage options to the city and its surrounding parishes with a focus on community building. The first product they are creating is a premium sparkling wine that comes in a can making it suitable for any setting. They’ll be working with a top-notch branding company to celebrate their first new product launch that is much more than wine but a community focused enterprise. A portion of the sales will be donated to selected organizations helping with disaster relief, particularly those organizations helping New Orleans’ surrounding parishes recently impacted by Hurricane Ida.
Endymion Spirits Co. has partnered with Watermill Estate Vineyard, which has a vineyard located in the Rocks District of Northeastern Oregon. Nested within the Walla Walla Valley AVA (American Viticultural Area), the Rocks District of Milton-Freewater is a designated grape growing region that resides entirely on the Oregon side of the Valley. The region has a rich and diverse agricultural tradition and global recognition as one of the world’s distinctive wine growing regions for Rhone wine grape varieties. Specialized farming practices have been developed to capture the savory, saline and umami wine qualities derived from these cobbled soils. The wine produced in this region is known for its boldness and award-winning qualities. Endymion Spirits’ premium-label sparkling canned-wine is sourced from this very vineyard.
