Royalty Spirits Founder Chaunci King is Today’s Honoree

Chaunci King of Royalty Spirits*, the first African American woman to own a spirits company in the Pacific Northwest, boasting fun flavors like Miru pear-infused vodka and caramel-colored Rex rye

whiskey. Highlighting rich taste, high quality and longevity, Miru is an ultra premium vodka made from pure Pacific Cascades spring water and grain, distilled multiple times to rid of any impurities to ensure a smooth mouthful. Originating from an old wives tale about the saurian goddess of the sea and inspired by female dominance and divine stature, each bottle of Miru features the goddess form, signifying the beauty of the bottles and the power of the drinks. Rex is artfully aged in charred Bordeaux wine barrels, and it’s essence overloads your palate with a rich, smooth finish. The company is debuting three non-alcoholic one-of-a-kind cocktail mixers infused with CBD, for teas, iced coffees, mocktails and more with full mobile bartending services.

On September 2020, the company hosted the first ever Women In Business Expo with registered women vendors from across the county, introducing women-owned brands to new opportunities, enhancing consumer awareness and igniting a movement towards women-owned companies. The Women In Business Expo will not only celebrate the bounty of women creators, but also facilitate long-lasting business relationships.
