Tequila Takeover (19 Bottles of Hussong’s on the Wall)

November 6

 

Happy Tequila Tuesday, everyone! It’s the perfect day to write about our recent rendezvous with the Tequila Club of Kansas City!

 

 

On Saturday, October 27th, 42 members of the local Tequila Club ventured to the distillery on a charter bus. This group included founding members and some pretty important faces too: local mayors, seven members of the Bar association, a former Kansas House minority leader, a former FBI task force leader, and loads of seasoned business owners.

 

 

When it came to entertaining this exciting bunch, Wyatt didn’t disappoint. Along with a personalized tour, members enjoyed a Hussong’s Happy Hour in the new event space, which featured flights, cocktails, and light appetizers and concluded with a bourbon tasting of our rye in the works, a two-year-old barrel pull accompanied by a sample of our signature White Dog.

 

 

 

And guess what?! They loved every minute of it! Among the group were four registered sommeliers, who were all unanimously impressed with the taste of our bourbon. They gave us high praise and agreed that we are going in the right direction. Couldn’t have asked for a better review!

 

 

Still, it’s the tequila that brought them, and they’ve made Hussong’s their tequila of choice. One member even noted that his at-home collection of empty Hussong’s bottles continues to grow. He’s currently sitting on 12 bottles of Platinum and seven bottles of Reposado, which he keeps because of our signature clay jugs. That’s a lot of love!

 

 

A local organization for more than 47 years, the Tequila Club of Kansas City is a vital player in the local spirits community. Way to rock it out and show them a good time, Wyatt! I, for one, am excited to see how our relationship progresses in years to come.

McCormick Distilling Co., Inc. is a distilled spirits company located in the United States, doing business in the domestic and certain foreign markets. We comply with federal, state, and foreign laws regarding labor practices wherever we operate.

The California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 (SB 657) (“Act”) seeks the elimination of slavery and human trafficking from product supply chains and requires that large companies who do business in California disclose their efforts toward the elimination of slavery and human trafficking. The information below relates to our efforts to comply with the Act.

1.) The vast majority of our suppliers are located in North America, principally in the United States, and in the European Union. To the best of our knowledge and belief, no supplier to our company, whether located within or without the United States, has ever been accused of engaging in forced labor or human trafficking.

2.) We reserve the right to audit our suppliers’ operations to ensure compliance with the Act. Currently, audits are not regularly performed by the company or an independent third party.

3.) Our purchase orders and supplier contracts will now contain an express representation that each supplier will comply fully with all applicable laws prohibiting human trafficking and slavery and that any violation of such laws is cause for immediate termination of our contracts and orders. We will terminate our contract with any supplier found to be in violation with our policy on human trafficking and slavery.

4.) To further our efforts to eradicate human trafficking and slavery from our supply chain, we have now asked suppliers to return a signed statement to us acknowledging that they support the elimination of forced labor and human trafficking.

5.) Our Employee Code of Conduct requires that company personnel try to ensure we work only with reputable suppliers. Employees annually affirm their compliance with our Employee Code of Conduct, but we have no formal training related to the issue.
