Edley’s Bar-B-Que Welcomes Heroes Vodka!
by Edley Newman
We’re proud of our heroes. The men and women who put their lives on the line to fight for the freedoms we enjoy every day are incredibly brave. At Edley’s, we want to support those men and women and Heroes Vodka is the newest way we are doing just that.
We are excited to announce we are switching our house vodka to Heroes Vodka, a veteran owned vodka company headquartered right here in Nashville, Tennessee.
Heroes owner Travis McVey is a veteran himself and realizes the need for continued care here on our soil. He contributes 25% of the profits to AMVET. This organization serves to enhance and safeguard the entitlements for all American veterans who have served honorably and to improve the quality of life for them, their families, and the communities where they live through leadership, advocacy and services.
The story behind Heroes Vodka
Heroes Vodka was founded in 2009 by Travis McVey, a U.S. Marine Corps veteran who proudly served as a Presidential Honor Guard from 1989-1992. An innovative and determined entrepreneur, Travis endured the life-changing tragedy of a good friend dying in combat in the War Against Terror in Afghanistan. The experience paved the way for Travis to realize the American dream of owning a business, a business that would enable him to continue to serve his country. Travis’ vision was to develop a brand to partner with well-known veteran organizations. His mission was to help veterans get the care they deserve. With Heroes Vodka, Travis’ dream has become a reality.
Heroes Vodka was first bottled on Veteran’s Day – 11.11.11 – a date that occurs only once in a century and epitomizes the rarity of this event. As the “Official Spirit of a Grateful Nation,” the mission of Heroes Vodka is to deliver exceptional taste and superior value to consumers, while honoring veterans and other American service organizations through charitable contributions.
The next time you’re at Edley’s, order a drink featuring Heroes Vodka and you’ll be supporting our troops with us!
