“We believe in community. We believe in unity. We believe in inclusion. We stand united in the belief that all people are created equal — ALL PEOPLE. Live Proud stands for strength and power exhibited by standing united, regardless of race, color, religion, creed, sex, sexual orientation, gender identity, national origin, ancestry or age. Live Proud stands for you — a person who not only loves and accepts yourself but also proudly accepts your friend, neighbor, co-worker or even a stranger. Live Proud stands for the liberty and freedom to openly love whomever you love. Live Proud stands for giving to those who help to protect and support your rights and those of your neighbors,” said Beth Hohlier, CEO of Live Proud Spirits.

Live Proud Vodka has a sweet corn and white pepper aroma, with a hint of sea salt and dried spices. The medium viscosity vodka has a clean and silky taste with a smooth spiced dry finish and good salinity. It is six times distilled from Midwestern corn, charcoal filtered and crafted in the United States.
“Many vodka brands use pride packaging for marketing themselves as being pro-LGBTQ+, but we are LGBTQ+,” Hohlier said. “By supporting our brand, you are supporting a women-owned business and an LGBTQ+ business.”
