By November 28, 2017Connecticut, Top News

Brescome Barton presented a check to Salute American Vodka for $1,776 on October 6 at Brescome Barton’s headquarters in North Haven. The funds benefitted the Work Vessels for Vets organization, which supports veterans transitioning from active duty back to civilian life. Brescome Barton President and CEO Gene Sepe presented the check to Salute American Vodka President John Neikrash, who also serves as the Chairman and Co-founder of Work Vessels for Vets. The first dollar of every bottle of Salute Vodka sold goes directly to organizations that assist veterans. In September, Brescome Barton also donated $5 per case of Salute American Vodka sold to support the non-profit’s outreach efforts.
