Hennessy x Black History Month
Throughout history, Black entrepreneurship has created space for opportunity, progress and legacy within the Black community. And despite the obstacles that threaten to shutter Black businesses, they still find a way to rise above. Hennessy is inspired by, and will continue to support, the Black entrepreneurs who keep going.
The Hennessy Fellows Program, in partnership with the Thurgood Marshall College Fund, is a yearly investment in the education of future leaders in this country. And in 2020, we partnered with organizations like One Hundred Black Men to create the Unfinished Business Small Business Initiative, which provided support and resources for over 900 small BIPOC-owned businesses affected by COVID-19.
And this is just the start. Hennessy’s commitment to uplift and empower the Black community remains unfinished.
Uncle Nearest Whiskey
The best whiskey maker the world never knew. The hill and the hollows above Lynchburg, Tennessee don’t easily give up their secrets. The whispers have always been here, lingering in the shadow, undiminished by the passage of time and the buzz of the larks and the mockingbirds. Here, where Tennessee whiskey was born, the story quietly endured for nearly two centuries, kept alive through the recollections of kinfolk and neighbors and faded ink on brittle, yellowed pages.
New England Brewing Co.
NEBCO is partnering with Sacred Heart University by offering an annual scholarship. The NEBCO African American Brewers Scholarship supports African American students enrolled in the brewing science certificate program at Sacred Heart University. To support the initiative, we will be donating $1 for each case of Sea Hag sold in the month of February.
