The stars of such popular television series as “The Big Bang Theory,” “The Office,” “Community,” “The Closer,” “Criminal Minds,” as well as classics like “ER” and “Seinfeld” got a taste of VuQo Premium Vodka at gifting suites around Los Angeles in honor of the 64th Primetime Emmy Awards.
VuQo participated in two suites this year- the Secret Room Red Carpet Luxury Lounge at the posh SLS Hotel in Beverly Hills, and the Borgnine Group’s Celebrity Gifting Suite and tribute to Hollywood legend Ernest Borgnine at the Sportsmen’s Lodge in Studio City.
Celebrities like Mayim Bialik, Joe Mantegna, Chris McDonald, and Hector Elizondo stopped by for refreshing VuQo Signature Cocktails, and got to take home a bottle of VuQo for their personal enjoyment. The stars were intrigued by the uniqueness of VuQo, as the only vodka in the world distilled from coconut. Coconut products, particularly coconut water drinks, have become very popular in Hollywood because of their health benefits.
“It’s really exciting that Hollywood celebs are enjoying VuQo as we get to participate in events surrounding television’s highest honors,” said VuQo Founder and CEO, Rich Cabael.
