Today, Mike Piazza launches TRUE Vodka, his bespoke Italian-made vodka brand, in collaboration with GrapeStars, the one-stop shop for celebrity wine and spirits. Piazza is a former baseball player with the NY Mets, and is a Hall of Famer for his time as a player with them.
Piazza is bringing TRUE Vodka to consumers as a nod to his Italian heritage, something he’s always wanted to honor in a big way. Consumers nationwide will have first-time access to enjoy TRUE Vodka at home and have it delivered directly to their doorsteps with the ease of GrapeStars, the exclusive retailer for TRUE Vodka.
RUE Vodka is made from mixed rye and wheat grains from Italy and uses specially purified water from the springs of Tuscany, making it incredibly smooth. The high-quality vodka is produced by a seven times distillation process by legendary supplier of spirits, Caffo, in the Distelleria Friulia. TRUE Vodka has been awarded the prestigious gold medal for best bottle design at the FESPA awards in 2017 and has been picked 9 out of 10 times in blind taste tests against other leading premium vodka brands.
“Mike Piazza hit many majestic home runs in a Mets uniform as part of his Hall of Fame career, and Mike is hitting another home run with True Vodka,” stated Mets Executive Vice President & Chief Revenue Officer Lou DePaoli.
“I have been a long-time Mike Piazza fan and cannot overstate how thrilled we are to team up with him.
