THIS IS a really tough time for everyone and it is hard to know what
to write about with all that is happening close to us in Baltimore, MD, and
far away in Nepal, and hearing that Canadian singer Joni Mitchell is sick
these days : Our thoughts and prayers and best wishes go out to all these
people and situations that make it so rough and where one cannot wonder why
such things occur?

ALWAYS WE ARE HERE for you. Just let us know what we may do, what you are
looking for, how we may be of assistance to help make things easier and
smoother for you?

WE HAD Kerri Hardiman here from Van Gogh Vodka this Tuesday morning, April
28th, 2015 tasting us on her whole line of 22 different flavors. We are
adding the Coconut and the Blue Triple Wheat in our next order that we hope
to sell for $24.99 a bottle each. Their products are all natural and double
infused. They're a "Martini in a bottle." Try something new on your next
visit. Thank you Matt and Kerri! What a fun and exciting way to start my
day today. The first thing I asked Kerri was if she had a drawing, sketch
or painting of Van Gogh's with her?!? She smiled and said ' no." Oh well,
next time Kerri have one with you and that will cement the deal. I am
smiling as I type this. Cheers all!

I TRIED many of these Vincent VAN GOGH vodkas including one that we have on
our shelves, the Acai-Blueberry Naturally-Infused and Flavored vodka,
$27.99. Kerri recommends that with this we add fresh lemonade and muddled
blueberries to make a great drink for spring and summer. I look forward to
rtrying this myself.

WE ALSO HAVE Vincent VAN GOGH Raspberry Vodka On Special for $22.99 for you
all to consider when you next make a mixed drink and want that pure and
delicate blueberry flavor! Bottled in Schiedam, Holland, all imported
vodkas from Holland, all 22 of them. Thanks Kerri. And for this Raspberry
Blueberry vodka Kerri recommends that you add some simple syrup, lime juice
and some Raspberry liqueur. Sounds like a dangerous and divine delight,
both that we have, all twenty-two that are available. What fun. What an
unexpected way for me to start my Tuesday with tiny sips of some of these
like the Coconut that I quite liked, it might have been my favorite,
especially for spring and summer months! With 35% alcohol by volume.

From this moring tasting the Vincent VAN GOGH Holland vodkas with Malkit, Tony, and poured and explained by both Kerri Hardoman Key Account Manager, MD, and Matt from National Republic Wholesalers. Cheers, happy Tuesday all! 4/28/2015
