      Hi Hilary- still working out distributor details- hopefully will have some news for you all very soon. Thanks for checking in!

      Hey Carin - sounds great! Thank you so much :-)

      Hi Hillary! I'm still in the process of awaiting my production date- the latest I've heard is end of January- and from there 6-8 weeks to get the bottles in hand. So the best I can say right now with a definite answer is "sometime in March". I'll draw a definite line in the sand as soon as I can- promise! I want to celebrate with you as soon as possible! Carin

      Hi Cory- Sorry for the delayed response on this! First of all- thank you for your amazing support and pledge- much appreciated. And for your question. My plan is to launch in San Francisco and Northern California to start, since it's my backyard. Once I find a retail location with an online store to carry my product- they will be able to ship it around the country- and some can ship to other countries. I hope to have this locked in very soon after I launch in late Feb/early March. trust me- working very hard on this, especially as I've gotten so many global inquiries from the success of the KS campaign! :) Best, Carin

      Hi Hilary! Happy New Year and thanks for your sweet note and your support!

      Everyone at and above the $100 level has been invite d to launch party, where SIA will be served straight as well as in a few different cocktails. There will be a goodie bag at the party to take home (containing the Flask - it was a surprise ;). Exclusive updates and thank you on video and site are also included at this reward level as well. For folks who can't make the party, items will be mailed.

      Feel free to contact me with any other questions and thanks again for your support, couldn't have done it without you! Best, Carin

      Hi Carin! First of all congratulations on the amazing 100% funding of SIA. That's great! Just a quick question, for those who pledged higher amounts, will we receive all of the "rewards" from each level that come before that? Thanks! Can't wait for the launch party.

      Congrats Carin! How appropriate that you would succeed on Dec 21, 2012! You are certainly entering a new phase in life and I wish you all the best! Dawn

      Congratulations!! So delighted for you! I didn't realize your project was up until just now! I am so happy you have already met your goal, can't wait to sample SIA!

      How could someone outside the USA get a hold of some SIA once it has launched? (Since the only way I see to get a bottle through kickstarter is the private tasting, which does sound immensely fun)

      Really liked your video pitch. Having seen a couple of other local beverage success stories roll by (most notably Tito's Vodka in Austin as well as (organic) Republic Tequila in Austin -- i wish you luck. Look forward to seeing updates as you make more progress. Cheers.

      Fellow backers, you are the backbone in helping this to become a reality. Tell your friends, your family, aunts, uncles, cousins, neighbors, pets and everyone else you know to kick in a dollar. Then, tell them to spread the word. Every dollar counts!

      Congrats on the launch and good luck!
