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…

Friday Featured Cocktail: Triple Crown Grapefruit Smash

November 2 It seems like only yesterday I wrote that very first blog post announcing the Triple Crown head-to-taste makeover, and in the weeks since, we’ve been gradually shifting our branding on social media to match the new look and feel.   Take, for example, the cover photo. What was this:     Is now…

What’s So Funny?

October 24   There’s a rule in improv comedy that urges performers to always say yes…to accept suggestions and turn them into something useful and (hopefully) something funny. But, like so many rules, “Say Yes” can be applied to all sorts of things. In the spirits industry, saying yes results in more opportunities for new…

Trick or Treat, Give Us Something Green to Drink

October 22   When I think about Halloween, nostalgic memories come to mind: jack-o-lantern buckets filled with Reese’s Bars, Dots, and Snickers; skeletons skipping through the leaf-littered streets; and carving the biggest pumpkin you can carry.   Here at Holladay, Halloween means bringing a spooky spirit to our cocktail creations and delivering seasonality into our…

Who Was Ben Holladay?

October 18   Though many have heard tales of The Pony Express and the Overland Stage, not everyone knows much about the force behind the two enterprises: Ben Holladay.     Ben Holladay was the determined and energetic founder, with his brother David, of Holladay Distillery, having recognized that the limestone spring that ran through…

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.
