Meet Toni Gilliard, founder and CEO of Tipsy Lady, a Black-owned premium Caribbean-inspired canned cocktail company that is making an impressive debut in the online direct-to-consumer retail channel.

Following its recent partnership with a small distributor, the Charleston, South Carolina-based brand has launched its online store, and plans to expand its placements into other cities are already in the works. Currently, Tipsy Lady is available in retail markets in CA, FL, NY, and NJ and online in over 30 states.

This latest push into new channels comes on the heels of the growth and popularity of the craft canned cocktail industry on and off premises consumption. "We are excited and honored to kick off our online direct-to-consumer channel and our expansion in other retail markets. Having partners believe in us at this early stage is an overwhelming compliment. We look forward to building relationships and strive to be the best partner to those that bet on us early," Toni says.
