Arthur R., Zakuska Vodka

I’ve been working with High-Proof for the past year on a vodka brand I’m starting and I’ve had an awesome experience with everyone there. Karen and her team have done an amazing job of designing my labels, website, promotional materials, social posts. They’ve provided consulting on a variety on strategic questions, helped me find better vendors and in the process have saved me thousands of dollars. I can’t imagine this brand coming to life with anyone else. They’ve been a partner at every step.
