THE FAMILY COPPOLA SECURES A CRAFT SPIRITS LICENSE & LAUNCHES A SPIRITS COLLECTION – GREAT WOMEN SPIRITS
September 27, 2017

GEYSERVILLE, Calif. (September 27, 2017) – Having successfully secured a craft spirits license, The Family Coppola is proud to announce the launch of Great Women Spirits, which will be available this October in select restaurants and retailers. Great Women Spirits -- small-batch, house-crafted, classically styled spirits -- will begin production with its brand of vodka, gin, and brandy, and has plans to expand the collection in the near future.

Being in a family comprised of three accomplished female filmmakers -- Eleanor, Sofia, and Gia -- Francis Ford Coppola is surrounded by powerful women. “My mother, sister, wife, daughter, and granddaughters have all inspired me, as have all of the incredible women we celebrate with Great Women Spirits. We all know well the great men of history, Alexander the Great, Julius Caesar, Napoleon and so on. I can think of as many women who distinguished themselves at that level in the fields of politics, science, mathematics and philosophy, so my choices and reasons for this collection are very personal."

His wife Eleanor agrees, and brings up a compelling perspective. “You know why we don’t hear about famous women in history? Because the history books were written by men.”
