In episode eighteen, Accountfully's CEO and Partner, Brad Ebenhoeh sits down with Managing Director of Tortoise and Volt Marketing and Ventures,  Steve Luttman.  To say Luttmann is a success in the high end liquor space is a serious understatement.  He shares his experience bringing brands to market for big companies like Unilever and LVHM's Moët Hennessy, and dives into his passion for developing the boutique craft alcohol selections seen in Tortoise and Volt's portfolio.  Selections as eclectic as a Texas Hefeweizen Whiskey, a Midwest made American Vodka, and a ready to drink Old Fashioned named after a Revolutionary War icon. For anyone interested in his proven process going from concept to branding, to successful launch, this is the episode for you.
