CHARLESTON, S.C. – Local Choice Spirits, an award-winning producer of ultra-premium spirits, today announced its partnership with Countess Luann de Lesseps to develop a collection of specialty liquors slated to launch late this year.

In 2014, she launched The Countess Collection: Styled for Living, her top-selling fashion line on EVINE live.

Working alongside Local Choice Spirits, the Countess will play a fundamental role in developing the spirits collection, which will be geared towards women, and will draw inspiration from her favorite flavors developed throughout her many travels and experiences.
