Marketing Support for Craft Alcohol Makers
“Suzanne has a very clear understanding of what our customers need from us is so very helpful in making marketing decisions and helping execute in our voice. Since we can’t do it all ourselves, it’s so nice to feel confident in her capabilities! Since The Crafty Cask has come on board, we’ve seen a serious uptick in our customer involvement and requests of where to find our product. Couldn’t recommend Suzanne and The Crafty Cask more” ~Jenni K., Charbay Distillery
