About Black Spirits Legacy

The Black Spirits Legacy Initiative is focused on driving commerce in economic value and have been for 5+ years through investing in Black-owned founders. They are making sure there’s more Black people reflected in the industry. They currently manage the Michigan Market for Duke and Dame Salted Caramel Whiskey, IslandJon Vodka, LS Cream Liqueur, Fort Mose' Bourbon, T Capri Tequila, Tom Bullock's Gin and Burnt Orange Bourbon to name a few. They are a team of Legacy Liaisons strategically working in this lucrative $353 billion industry of which we are currently grossly underrepresented. They help entrepreneurs with everything: distribution, supply chain, marketing, and eCommerce. Example, helping businesses find very hard to source materials like glass, and helping them understand how to market their brand.

They have built a library of information, training materials, and relationships just to level the playing field for a population that is starting from a deficit. They don’t just want to get them up to a level playing field. They want get them up to plus 10, so that they can compete with other brands.

"Our Legacy revolves around infinite potential and how Black Spirits are going to make history—not competitively but collectively, because doing so will make a global impact." -LAZAR
