About Charbay Distillery
The Karakasevic family is one of the early pioneers of the modern American artisan distillery movement; they began distilling in California in 1983 with Alambic Pot Still Brandy and haven’t stopped since. The lineup includes whiskeys distilled from bottle-ready beer, brandies distilled from Napa Valley grapes, vodkas flavored with 100% real fruit or tea and rum distilled from sugar cane syrup.
Marko is Generation XIII to carry on the family’s European heritage of fermenting & distilling. His 25-year apprenticeship covered every category of distilling.

About Stand For Kindness
Stand For Kindness rose from the ashes of the 2017 North Bay Area Fires; the organization, founded by Chaela Ciongoli, Jenni Karakasevic, and Lauren Karlowsky, was conceived to create a centralized online platform connecting the world with the immediate emergency response and long-term recovery needs of Napa and Sonoma wildfire survivors. The founders supported their community by helping people evacuate, offering their homes as a refuge to evacuees, and checking on the houses and animals of others that were unable. Together, they devised a plan to quickly respond to community members in need post-disaster.
