San Antonio’s Rebecca Creek Distillery, one of the largest craft distilleries in North America, has partnered with the San Antonio Spurs basketball team for the 2017-18 NBA season.
This partnership will focus on putting Rebecca Creek Distillery in front of fans via TV signage, and a “Hometown Highlights” digital campaign that will be viewable across Spurs social media platforms, app, and website.
Rebecca Creek Distillery’s collaboration with the San Antonio Spurs marks its second partnership with a major league sports team this year. In April 2017, Rebecca Creek Saloon opened at Globe Life Park in Arlington, Texas, home of the Texas Rangers baseball team.
“It’s an investment in our community. We hope to follow in the footsteps of other major San Antonio community icons, such as H-E-B, USAA and Valero, and build a long-term partnership with this legendary sports franchise.”
– Steve Ison, CEO and Founder of Rebecca Creek Distillery
“We are focused on raising awareness around the Rebecca Creek Distillery brands, both locally and on a national scale. The Spurs being from our hometown made them a natural fit, and they do a fantastic job connecting with their fans. We are excited to be a part of it all and look forward to launching our ‘Support the Home Team’ campaign in the 2017-18 NBA Season.”
– Matt Appleby, Rebecca Creek Distillery’s Vice President of National Marketing
