MurLarkey Distilled Spirits Unveils Bottoms Up to the Bay Campaign
Virginia distiller to partner with Chesapeake Bay Foundation this fall
Bristow, VA (October 29, 2018)—MurLarkey Distilled Spirits is excited to partner with the Chesapeake Bay Foundation (CBF) on its first annual Bottoms Up to the Bay campaign. The distillery will donate one dollar per bottle sold from Thursday, November 1, through Monday, December 31, to help fund CBF programs aiming to “Save the Bay” through environmental advocacy, education and awareness building, and bay cleanup initiatives.
“After living in Virginia for years, my family has come to appreciate the beauty of the Chesapeake Bay and its importance to everyone in the mid-Atlantic and the greater world,” said Tom Murray, MurLarkey CEO. “Realizing the Bay needs our help, our team at MurLarkey all felt strongly about giving back to this part of our community and found an amazing partner in the Chesapeake Bay Foundation to help preserve this natural wonder.”
“It takes action from the whole region to Save the Bay and we’re happy to partner with businesses such as MurLarkey Distilled Spirits that step up and contribute to the long-term cleanup effort,” said Taryn Dwan, Director of Stewardship and Events for the Chesapeake Bay Foundation. “We’ll use the funds raised from this partnership to help grow our advocacy, restoration, and education programs to continue CBF’s work to improve the environment of the Chesapeake Bay.”
Fans of MurLarkey are invited to purchase bottles at select Virginia ABC stores, Maryland Total Wine & More locations, or onsite at the distillery, to help further CBF’s mission of pollution reduction throughout the Chesapeake’s six-state, 64,000-square-mile watershed, which is home to more than 18 million people and 3,000 species of plants and animals.
Since 2016, MurLarkey has challenged convention, producing a broad array of award-winning, premium, handcrafted spirits and broadening its distribution networks. MurLarkey is now available at over 100 Virginia ABC stores and hundreds of restaurants and hotels across Washington, DC and Virginia, and now at select Total Wine & More locations in Maryland. MurLarkey’s extensive selection of spirits can be purchased or sampled at the distillery’s tasting room (7961 Gainsford Court, Bristow VA; 571-284-7961). The distillery is open 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Thursday, 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Friday, and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. Saturday, as well as Monday through Wednesday by appointment.
