Growing platform increases ability to affect change for the spirits industry

The Distilled Spirits Council of the United States (DISCUS) today announced that Dragon Spirits Marketing, a top-of-the-line brand activation staffing and education platform, is joining Spirits United as a partner member, growing the platform’s reach and influence on issues important to the spirits industry.

“As brand representatives for many of our favorite spirits products, Dragon Spirits Marketing is a perfect fit for Spirits United,” said Chris Swonger, president & CEO of DISCUS and “Its ‘Dragons’ promote products across the country, and now, with their help, we can spread the word about the most pressing issues facing spirits producers, retailers and consumers. We are excited to partner with Dragon Spirits Marketing and look forward to growing our collective voice.”

“We are honored to partner with DISCUS through Spirits United, especially considering our company was initially founded eight years ago to introduce new American distilleries to consumers all over the United States,” said Lamar Romero, CEO and co-founder of Dragon Spirits Marketing. “In fact, we now contract more than 3,200 “Dragon” Brand Ambassadors in 27 states, brand activating thousands of events monthly for burgeoning beer, wine, liquor and CPG brands. However, distilled spirits have always carried a special place in our hearts, and we are excited to support all the great spirits brands that make up our industry by engaging policymakers and influencing legislation to create more opportunities for our distilled spirits friends and family!”

Spirits United and its partner members continue to underscore a strong commitment to responsibility. Through Spirits United’s social media content and information on its site, spirits advocates will be encouraged to join industry efforts to prevent underage drinking and drunk driving, and to promote the responsible consumption of beverage alcohol.
