This expansion plan is in place, including new market launches in New Hampshire in March. “This strategic partnership will serve to strengthen Cylinder’s presence in the New England region by increasing product awareness, creating sales velocity and driving full market penetration,” explained Alexei Beratis, founder of 21st Century Wine Co., “and we will also establish on-premise relationships on behalf of the brand with restaurants, bars and lounges.”

The rapidly growing spirits brand first launched in Connecticut in 2017 and has steadily gained traction as more and more consumers discover the brand. Cylinder, a premium craft vodka, is made in the United States from certified non-GMO corn and is certified gluten free. Distilled six times, then purified using a state-of-the-art filtration technology, gives the vodka an incomparable smoothness and clean aroma for your next drink--whether you’re making a cocktail, enjoying it neat, or on the rocks. In addition to providing a great tasting product that consumers can trust, the 6x distilled vodka is giving back to the community by supporting clean water initiatives in communities its product is sold with Cylinder Cares. By donating five percent of all sales to approved clean water initiatives, Cylinder is advancing its sustainability mission to support nonprofits working to protect the earth’s water resources and reverse the effects of water pollution to ensure they remain beautiful and healthy for the next generations. “We take pride in being a brand that celebrates community,” said Stavrianos, “this new partnership will allow us to donate 5% of revenue generated in Massachusetts to help clean the Boston Harbor and Massachusetts Bay—and that is something that makes me feel good about what we are doing.” Cylinder is available now in major states across the country and has a suggested retail price of $28.
