North Carolina Senators Call For Ban Of Russian Vodka
Considering Titos, my vodka of choice is made in the USA I can support this notion. In the wake of recent events North Carolina state senator Michael Garrett is asking the North Carolina Alcoholic Beverage Control Board to ban the sales of Russian vodka. The Senator penned a letter to the board which he posted on Twitter on Saturday.
You can read the full letter below, but Garrett said while small this is one way North Carolina can demonstrate that they stand with the people of Ukraine.
Today, I wrote to the members of North Carolina’s ABC Board to insist on cessation of sales and suspension of wholesale purchases of Russian-made vodka in our state, indefinitely. (1/3) pic.twitter.com/EaIoRqAzbZ— Sen. Michael Garrett (@MichaelKGarrett) February 26, 2022
Southern Spirits liquor store in Indian Land, SC has already said it will no longer carry Russian Vodka. Ideally, Senator Garrett would like this ban on Russian vodka to be permanent.
Southern Spirits in Fort Mill says they will not promote Russian products at this time. They will be removing displays from the floor and will promote the Ukrainian vodka Kozak instead. pic.twitter.com/RcoC5LCwuv— Joe Bruno (@JoeBrunoWSOC9) February 25, 2022
