Spirit manufacturing is all in the family

LAS VEGAS – Las Vegas resident Dan Pettit always wanted to make flavorful beverages and in the spirit of family, is making his dream come true with his daughter, Angela. Together, they are manufacturing and marketing their creation: Azzurre Spirits.

The corporate financier and personal trainer teamed up earlier this year to get the company off the ground, manufacturing gin and vodka in Northern California and selling it in Nevada. They didn’t want to take a chance on running out of product since it is created differently from other alcohol. It is only distilled once rather than multiple times, and there are no added sugars or oils. Only apples, grapes and sugar cane are used for flavor.

The products are currently available in Nevada restaurants, retailers and venues in The Valley and Pettit hopes to have it available in California soon. Find Azzurre Spirits at Mandalay Bay, STK Las Vegas at The Cosmopolitan, db Brasserie at The Venetian, and Lee’s Discount Liquor.
