The Spirits Brand You NEED To Have At Your Next Gathering: HH Bespoke Spirits – From Diva Sharene WoodBy Jill Goldsberry | April 1, 2019 | Lifestyle
Sharene Wood, mom, fashion design CEO and now spirits entrepreneur is one to watch! If you don’t know her you may know of her brands like 5001 Flavors or the hottest boutique uptown Harlem Haberdashery (yes, google them now, we’ll wait!).
Shay, as she is often called, is now part of an elite group of women in the spirits industry with the launch of her lifestyle brand HH Bespoke Spirits. An African-American woman from the fashion industry to the spirits biz? We had to find out how she did it!
“Well we’ve been in business so long and we know a lot of people, so it was a natural transition,” Shay says.
Shay found a ready and willing partner in the AstraLuna distillery and manufacturer, and she launched her own spirits quietly in November 2018. Shay aimed to create bottles that make a statement with their size and unique shapes. “Each label represents a member of my family,” Shay shares. That includes her husband Guy Wood Sr., son Guy Wood Jr. and brother Kells Barnett. Yes, it’s a family business but HH Bespoke Spirits is Shay’s vision.
Each spirit is triple distilled creating a premium 40 proof spirit. The flavors are infused with various enhancements. HH Bespoke Rum is infused with botanicals with notes of vanilla and butterscotch. The HH Bespoke Gin surprises with hints of lavender, rosehip and cranberry. HH Bespoke Vodka is clean and crisp.
Impress your friends at the next gathering and make cocktails using this is Black-owned, woman run, high quality distilled liquor straight out of Harlem, Divas! Purchase at hhbespokespirits.com.
