Gotta Ibotta

February 13   Remember the extreme couponing craze that swept the nation? Torrents of segments poured into local news stations featuring scissor-happy moms who held up grocery checkout lines and whose laundry rooms were stocked like a supermarket with shelves of hand soap, laundry detergent, liter sodas, and whatever items the deals led them to…

99 Bottles of Booch on the Wall

February 8   Have you ever heard of Kombucha (pronounced kom-BOO-cha)? It’s a lightly fermented tea drink that has gained popularity among the natural food market for its numerous health benefits. Chief among these healthy perks are improved digestion, reduced stress, and increased energy. Personally, I enjoy the taste of kombucha. When made right, it’s delightfully…

No Ordinary Garage

February 7   The garage in the marketing house looks like an ordinary garage. There are shelves stocked with miscellaneous this-and-thats and countertops littered with work-in-progress projects. But there’s also magic lurking in every corner.   At the marketing house, the garage is a sacred space. It’s where we create content. We turn a house…

Leather Bound Triple Crown

February 5   There’s a ruggedness to leather crafting just as there’s a ruggedness to whiskey and bourbon making. The artists of both trades approach the process with patience and care to detail, and let’s be honest … they get their hands dirty. So, when I noticed a local, Kearny-based artist had crafted a leather…

The Perfect Pair

February 1   Some things just go together … peanut butter and jelly, chips and salsa, Batman and Robin, Tequila Rose and 360 Double Chocolate.   One of our most recognized promotions — the 360 Double Chocolate and Tequila Rose Chocolate Covered Strawberry — is the definition of a perfect pair. The luscious strawberry cream…

Table for Two

January 30   Oh, Valentine’s Day. The holiday of doting on your better half, satisfying the sweet tooth, and braving the waitlist at your favorite restaurant so you can share that special V-Day dinner at a romantic table for two.   But what if you didn’t have to wait. What if, there was a place…

What’s in the box?

January 25   Happy Friday, everyone!   Today’s press mention comes to us from DrinkHacker, who recently reviewed the liquor subscription, Shots Box. Complete with 10 mini bottles of sample spirits and recipe cards, Shots Box gives consumers the opportunity to sample smaller craft brands.   Drinkhacker wasn’t impressed, at least, not with the box…

Now, Isn’t That Sweet?

January 23   Remember when the Tequila Rose pudding shots went viral? I do, and I distinctly recall the domino effect of press mentions that followed. The post blew up on social media, reaching millions and being shared by fans over 150,000 times. It caught the attention of several news sites, including OK!, Cosmopolitan, and…

Cocktail Love

January 16   Valentine’s Day is just around the corner, and nothing says romance like a fancy, red cocktail with a French name. In Valentine’s Day Cocktail List recently published by Town & Country, a Nashville bartender recommends a drink called the Saint Charmond. It features a base spirit of vodka or gin, and wouldn’t…

Snow Problem

January 15   Last weekend, a winter storm hit the kc-metro and beyond with several inches of snow. Powerlines fell, leaving thousands without power. Grocery stores were stripped of bread and milk. Roads were littered with rock salt and slush. Did the arctic blast stop the faithful Arrowhead tailgaters from lighting up their grills Saturday…

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.

Our Commitment
The United Kingdom Modern Slavery Act 2015 and the California Transparency in Supply Chains Act of 2010 require companies to disclose their efforts to mitigate the risk of modern slavery and human trafficking in their supply chain. Modern slavery and human trafficking are the use of forced, compulsory or trafficked labor or anyone held in slavery or servitude. As a responsible corporate citizen, McCormick Distilling Co., Inc. is committed to actions that will mitigate the risk of modern slavery in our business. In addition, we expect our vendors, suppliers, and contractors to have the same commitment.

Our Controls
McCormick Distilling Co., Inc. is committed to implementing and enforcing controls to prevent modern slavery in our business and in our supply chain. We have regular contact with our vendors, suppliers and contractors. Our contracts with vendors, suppliers and contractors require compliance with all applicable laws. If necessary, we will engage with third parties to assist us in evaluating our supply chain. Any concerns relating to noncompliance with this statement are investigated promptly and appropriate actions will be taken based on the findings of the investigation.

Our Training
We support our commitment and controls by providing training to our employees. The training is designed to create awareness around the problem of modern slavery and to help employees identify the sign of modern slavery in our supply chain.
