After experiencing serious reproductive health issues around 24 years old, I took an unconventional route to pay off my medical bills: I threw ticketed pool parties, centered around inclusivity. Though I had no prior experience in the alcoholic beverage space when I started Bev in 2017, I did have a mission: create a voice for women where there had never truly been one, and do so in a kind and approachable way. Bev is on a mission to transform the alcohol industry as we know it. Bev is changing the culture around drinking by speaking to and connecting with women — empowering them to break the glass and encouraging them to own their fun. Our first product is the refreshingly crisp and dry, canned California rosé wine. This proprietary blend has bright aromatics of strawberry, raspberry, and white peach. Made specifically for a can, every can of Bev has 11.9% ABV, 0 grams of sugar, and 3 grams of carbs. Bev is currently available in California, Tennessee, Massachusetts, Arizona, Colorado and Texas as well as available online nationwide.
Gem — GEM vitamins have become a staple in my daily routine. GEM was founded by Sara Cullen and I can thank her first-hand for helping me get through my day-to-day. These vitamins have all the good (and important!) stuff while also being delicious and non-intimidating for those beginning their wellness journey.
Unbound — Another female-founded company that I am proud to support is Unbound Babes. Unbound Babes was founded by Polly Rodriguez after she decided to combat the stigma surrounding women’s sexual health. She decided to create a brand that would empower women to feel comfortable embracing their sexuality — with a damn cute product line to boot! Polly is a prime example of a woman who is breaking the glass in a previously male-dominated culture.
County Line Florals — My dear friend, Abigail Spencer, founded Country Line Florals and it has been such a privilege to watch the company grow day by day. Abigail’s eye for design and aesthetic paired with her keen business skills have worked in harmony to create floral arrangements that you will never want be without.
Anything else? Keep breaking the glass, ladies! From myself and the rest of the Bev team, we’re rooting for you xx
