15 Black-Owned Liquor & Wine Brands To Add To Your Bar Cart
You definitely know the founder of #11.
Food and beverage are a central part of cultures all over the world. To try a new dish or cocktail is to appreciate the ingredients and values that matter to that community of people, which is why so many people have strong memories related to what they’ve consumed. During Black History Month, educating yourself on the lesser-known historical figures from the Black community that have made incredible advances in society and putting your money where your mouth is by donating to organizations that support Black communities are ways to celebrate the month. Another way to honor the values of the month is to support Black-owned businesses, and your bar cart is one easy way to start.
These 15 liquor and wine brands — plus one artisan mixer brand — are all Black-owned and have amazing founders' stories behind their portfolios. Whether you want to try a recipe that dates back to the Prohibition era or are a huge fan of all things Mary J. Blige (yes, she has a wine brand!) you’ll love any of the bottles you try from this list.
