Share an olive. Share the tradition. Drink BiVi.
BiVi Sicilian Vodka, a subsidiary of Iconic Brands, has announced its upcoming sponsorship of the 2015 Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival presented by FOOD & WINE. The eighth annual event, which attracts food and beverage enthusiasts, industry professionals, and influencers, will be taking place in New York City from October 15-18.
Launched in the summer of 2015, BiVi Sicilian Vodka is produced in an “Old World” artisan distillery in Messina Sicily and is hand-crafted with Sicily’s local pristine waters and the finest semolina wheat. The stills are fired using the finest Sicilian fruitwoods from Blood Orange and Lemon trees. The brand, along with its celebrity spokesperson, legendary actor Chazz Palminteri, have joined forces to raise awareness for the product as it becomes available across the U.S.
As part of its partner-level sponsorship at the event, BiVi Sicilian Vodka will have a prominent presence at Giada De Laurentiis’ Italian Feast presented by Ronzoni sponsored by the New York Post taking place at Pier 92 on Thursday, October 15. That evening, BiVi will offer attendees an option to taste one of two very special cocktails that will be crafted exclusively for the event: A Bronx CockTale, a recipe dedicated to the brand’s spokesperson, legendary actor and celebrity, Chazz Palminteri, and The BiVi “Share An Olive” Martini.
“We are excited to be part of this year’s Food Network & Cooking Channel New York City Wine & Food Festival,” shared Rich DeCicco, CEO of Iconic Brands. “It is an honor to be among such great company and our presence, in particular, at Giada De Laurentiis’ Italian Feast will serve as a great alignment for our brand, further emphasizing BiVi’s Italian roots, heritage, and tradition.”
Tickets to experience BiVi Sicilian Vodka at Giada De Laurentiis’ Italian Feast are available online at www.nycwff.org.
