Awards to be presented during April 18-21 event at Grande Lakes Orlando The WSWA Educational Foundation will honor Gerry Ruvo, Chairman of Campari America, with the Sidney Frank Innovation Award presented by Mast-Jägermeister, given annually to a person who has made exceptional industry contributions in addition to noteworthy philanthropy and community service. "Alan Dreeben and Gerry Ruvo, each have a long history of supporting charities, individuals and community organizations with their time, money and leadership. Alan and Gerry are industry giants, and we are honored to recognize their contributions," said WSWA President and CEO Craig Wolf. ABOUT GERRY RUVO Gerry Ruvo is a transformational leader in the spirits business with nearly 40 years of experience. Ruvo began his beverage alcohol career at Gallo in upstate New York, followed by senior sales roles with Monsieur Henri, where he helped introduce Stolichnaya Vodka to the U.S. After moving to the Paddington Corporation as Vice President, National Sales, he was named Vice President of Sales for the newly formed International Distillers and Vintners (IDV), the largest spirits company in North America. In 1998, he joined SKYY Spirits to develop the burgeoning one-brand company before being named CEO after the buyout of the company by Gruppo Campari in 2005. Ruvo helped Campari build a diverse portfolio of unique, owned products, beginning with the acquisition of Cabo Wabo Tequila, Wild Turkey Bourbon, Espolon Tequila, Appelton Rum, and Forty Creek Canadian Whisky. Recognizing the consumer trend towards all-natural, infused products, he is also credited with introducing the popular SKYY infusions line. Ruvo's dedication to charitable efforts includes work on behalf of the American Cancer Society and the Sky Ranch Foundation. He has also served as Chairman of the Distilled Spirits Council.

Wine Country Lyndhurst SCOTCH NOT ON THE ROCKS

Blended whisky is a difficult category, since consumers in the 1980s and 1990s grew enamored of vodka, says Gerry Ruvo, CEO of Skyy Spirits, importer of Cutty Sark and four single malts.
Ruvo, who says Cutty Sark will focus its efforts on major urban areas, believes consumers are starting to move towards robust flavors, and cocktails could help. Skyy put Cutty Sark into a 3,000 account cocktail program this summer, built around the movie Sex and the City; four cocktails featuring Skyy were named after female characters, while the Mr. Big was made with Cutty Sark. Blended Scotch needs to go on drink lists. I think the way they have got to go is promote them to consumers and create really interesting drinks in the on-premise to get them to sample these whiskies, Ruvo says. Ruvo and others say that shows and events focusing on sampling and education is key to catching consumer interest, which hell need to do now that Skyys malts include full-flavored brands like Bowmore, Glenrothes and Auchentoshen, as well as Japanese single malt Yamazaki.
