When he saw an opportunity to leverage these products as a way to give back, he took that opportunity to launch an entirely new business venture. HMG Beverage LLC launched in November 2020, the week of Thanksgiving. Started with five blends, and now offers a spirt line as well to include, Gin and Straight Bourbon Whiskey with plans of offering other beverage options as well, with a portion of every purchase donated to charity.
