Gray Whale Gin Webinar Showcases Brand for CDI Sales Team

By July 23, 2020Connecticut, Top News

Gray Whale Gin Founders Jan and Marsh Mokhtari joined the Connecticut Distributors, Inc., team for a June 12 webinar.

Connecticut Distributors, Inc. (CDI), and Deutsch Family Wine & Spirits launched Gray Whale Gin during a June 12 webinar. Crafted from California botanicals that celebrate the 12,000-mile Pacific Ocean migratory journey of the California Gray Whale from Baja to Mendocino, the eponymous gin supports Oceana, a charitable organization that protects and restores the world’s oceans, for every bottle sold. The small-batch gin is made with botanicals that are foraged along the Pacific coastline migratory path of the whale. Founders Marsh and Jan Mokhtari, who met in a bar in Chicago 20 years ago and started Golden State Distillery together in 2016, joined the entire CDI and Deutsch teams for a virtual educational call as part of CDI’s acquisition of the brand.
