Mix up a eco-friendly cocktail with VeeV

A spirit called VeeV is delivering a fabulous new eco-cocktail experience based on Acai berries. These berries are found in the Brazilian Amazon Rainforest and are becoming increasingly popular as a food and ingredient for healthy products all over the world.

Acai berries are dark purple berries which are believed to have over 50 percent more antioxidants than other better known berries. By fusing these exotic-tasting berries with a hand-crafted base spirit that has been distilled, an eco-friendly cocktail with no artificial additives has been created.

Many people now believe Açai berry to be one of the healthiest foods on the planet; certainly it is very much at home in the super food category. And by using this very special berry, VeeV has managed to develop a 60-proof liquor that mixes just like vodka and leaves a wonderfully smooth taste in your mouth. VeeV's motto of ''enjoy tonight and save tomorrow'' sums up perfectly how they have managed to balance producing a wonderfully delicious drink with protecting the planet.

The company has gone through a rigorous carbon neutral certification program and now claims to be the only certified carbon neutral spirit in the world, setting an excellent benchmark for other producers of spirits to follow. VeeV's totally cool boxes are produced from 100% post-consumer waste and the soy ink sustainable packages are standard. ''VeeV enables us to reach a young, influential audience who strive to make environmentally-friendly choices while also experiencing a great-tasting product'' says Courtney Reum, one of VeeV's founders.

A range of specially-developed cocktails based on the VeeV spirit has also been developed to appeal to eco-urban party people. Fancy a bit of Joie De VeeV? Or perhaps are you tempted by a little Eau de VeeV? Well you can now pop into some of America's most fabulous lounges or restaurants to enjoy a VeeV, or you can have a go at mixing up a little eco-friendly cocktail in the comfort of your own home.
