Whitney and Griffin McFarlane grew up on St Thomas so when they decided to go into business for themselves, they wanted to create something that celebrates the heritage of the islands. So they distill craft vodka made with unique Caribbean flavors. The islands are known for rum. By using the same base ingredient as rum-pure cane sugar, they distill their vodka and infuse it with locally sourced herbs grown in the Virgin Islands and throughout the Caribbean Archipelago. Thus the name ARC. Email firstname.lastname@example.org or email@example.com for more information.
