Carter Reum - VeeV Açai Spirit
By Billy Harris
VeeV, the first açai spirit on the market is the brainchild of brothers Courtney and Carter Reum. Inspired by the Brazilian culture and environment, as well as the women, the brothers set out to create a product that reflected their idea of what Brazil is and what being "green" could be. One dollar from the sale of each bottle goes to their sustainable açai project back in Brazil. VeeV is less Birkenstock and more stiletto!
