Inspired by a personal dream, Rifino Valentine gave up a career on Wall Street and executed on the vision of creating an artisan distillery in Michigan. Since its launch in 2009, Valentine Vodka has established a new standard of the highest quality handcrafted vodka, capable of competing with established international brands.
Join MSED as we revisit one of our most popular networking locations at Valentine Distilling Co. in Ferndale. Share the story about how this new venture was nurtured from a passion and a dream to achieving national recognition through a commitment to creating the best. In 2012, Valentine Vodka won a gold medal in the prestigious San Francisco World Spirits competition, competing against more than 1,000 entrants from around the world. 2013 promises more surprises as Valentine reaches for new levels of success - including new production of gin and whisky.
Enjoy time with some of the top marketing minds in Michigan while learning about a true Michigan success story. The evening includes appetizers, a tour of the distillery, a taste of the "notoriously good" spirit, pizza and networking.
