Fast Penny Spirits partners with Black Girl Ventures for Pretty Penny Giveback

Seattle-based Fast Penny Spirits, makers of Amaricano Rossa and Amaricano Bianca, are partnering with Black Girl Ventures for their third quarter Pretty Penny program. This is the second time the amaro distillery has teamed up with the entrepreneurial nonprofit to donate 3% of bottle sales for the quarter.
Black Girl Ventures provides black and brown woman-identifying founders with access to community, capital, and capacity building in order to meet business milestones that lead to economic advancement through entrepreneurship.
“Black Girl Ventures is honored to partner with Fast Penny Spirits. Meaningful partnerships like this are how we are able to make sustainable change in our community,” said Anna Brickman, Strategic Partnerships for Black Girl Ventures. “We are excited to see where this partnership takes us, we know it’s always a win when we are able to work with other women-owned and founded companies to advance this work.”

The Pretty Penny giveback was part of Fast Penny Spirits’ business model from the start.

“Black Girl Ventures was one of our first Pretty Penny partners and we are thrilled to join forces with them again,” said Jamie Hunt, CEO and Founder of Fast Penny Spirits. “Supporting women in business is a key tenet of our giveback program. BGV’s model to provide critical social and financial capital are exactly the types of organizations we need to help advance more women into entrepreneurial success.”
