Stellie’s Spirits @StelliesSpirits
A good host keeps a good drink flowing". That's who I wanted to be, thus who I became. If I made you a drink, I was determined to make you feel it. Before I gave my craftsmanship a name, it was an energy. I wanted sweet, well balanced, cocktails with a kick, so I created them. When I realized others wanted the same, I started Stellies Spirits".
Karibbean Kremas @Karibbean_Kremas
Since November 2009 in the small kitchen of my mother's home, we would start the festivities to welcome the holidays by making kremas from scratch with my mother's guidance.
We would make enough Kremas to share with her co-workers & family and have a glass ready for anyone that visited our home. After many years of this tradition, we decided to share this speciality drink with the world.
12 years later Karibbean Kremas has grown to be a household name year-round, serving the community and sharing laughter at events. We have brought a piece of Haiti to share with the world and hope your ready to have a taste of Paradise!"
