Ferndale, MI – It flew off the shelves last fall. So, if you missed it; you’re getting a second chance. The two Detroit-based companies, Valentine Distilling Co. and McClure’s Pickles, have teamed again up to make the perfect Bloody Mary box kit for this season’s football tailgates.
Available in limited quantities, the kit comes with two glasses, a fifth of Valentine vodka (featuring a new-and-improved bottle that recently debuted on shelves), and a McClure’s Bloody Mary mix jar for $29.99. It will hit shelves mid-to-late September at many convenient retailers such as Meijer, Kroger, Walmart, and Costco as well as other area retailers while supplies lasts.
“Our custom tailgating kit is exactly what every fan needs on game day,” said Rifino Valentine, president and founder of Valentine Distilling Co. “Our high-quality ingredients will keep the fan’s spirits up while they cheer on their favorite team.”
Masters of their crafts, Valentine and McClure’s have had a lifelong business relationship. Last fall, these two companies teamed up to stand out on retail shelves.
“Competing for retail shelf space amongst national brands claiming craft status is a challenge,” said Valentine. “We decided to create the Bloody Mary Mix Kit to showcase Detroit craft, quality products in a unique way.”
Working together for years as friends, and now partners as they continue to collaborate on this product, the two companies have extraordinary synergy and strong dedication to Detroit, and aim to share their spirit with football fans this tailgating season.
“Fans loved it last season, and we except them to go crazy for the kit again this season,” commented Valentine. “Looks like a touchdown to me!”
