McCaslin, co-founder of Spirits of India Feni.“This fulfills a lifetime goal of ours to introduce Feni to the US.”Feni will be available for purchase through Wirtz Beverage Illinois distributors.“Spirit of India Feni is a unique, game-changing spirit that will enhance the creativity of mixologists while expanding the palates of new customers and consumers alike,” said Jason Griffin, business development manager of Wirtz.
